Compassionate Care from Your Initial Consultation to Your Postoperative Follow-Up
During your consultation, our team reviews your medical history, performs a physical examination, and discusses your lifestyle and goals. This helps us determine which weight loss surgery fits your needs as we offer gastric bypass, gastric sleeve, mini gastric bypass, and revision surgeries.
You typically qualify for bariatric surgery if:
- Your BMI is between 35 and 39
- Health conditions like high blood pressure or Type 2 diabetes
Our doctors educate you on what the chosen procedure involves, including preparation and recovery. You can also find a wide selection of client resources on our website. Your coordinator helps you and our board-certified doctor address any aspect of your upcoming surgery.
In the early stages of your weight loss journey with us, we also discuss pricing and inform you about our packages and financing solutions to help you pay for your bariatric procedure. TreVita strives to minimize your wait when you want to schedule your trip to Tijuana quickly.
During the preoperative phase, our team helps you get ready for weight loss surgery with all necessary testing and lab work. This helps our medical providers have all the necessary data to safely move forward with your procedure.
We also tailor a diet plan to your needs to support you in getting rid of some pounds before your procedure. You can expect compassionate nutritional counseling and active lifestyle recommendations to improve and support your health. Our doctors usually recommend reducing your calorie intake to 1200 to 1500 calories a day and to work out several times a week to increase your chances of success and implement healthy habits for the long term.
TreVita offers a welcome bag to our clients which includes a Bluetooth body composition scale and the TreVita Wellness app for motivation and accountability throughout your weight loss transformation before and after surgery.
The trip to Mexico for your bariatric surgery takes five days. Our private and safe transportation service picks you up at the San Diego airport and drives you across the border to Tijuana where our medical center and luxury accommodations are. You can expect an additional pre-surgical checkup when you arrive in Tijuana and meet with our surgeon and other medical staff. We have on-site support personnel to accompany you before and after your surgery.
On the day of your surgery, you will recover in a private client room after our surgeon performs the procedure. Our medical team monitors you and administers medication as needed. You will be able to drink fluids again 24 hours after the surgery. The day you leave the hospital, the doctor conducts a test to make sure there is no leak in your new stomach. Once you are discharged, you get to enjoy another relaxing night at our nearby luxury hotel before our transportation personnel drives you back to San Diego airport the following day.
Once you get home you will find your nutritional supplements waiting for you. Monthly deliveries will continue throughout your subscription. We specifically design our supplement for people who have had bariatric surgery. Our team continues to monitor your progress and follow up with you for up to six months after your procedure. We are also available to discuss additional surgical needs such as cosmetic dental work and plastic surgery.
