    That is one thing I never understood is Insurance how is it you get people who can go in there and get surgery done and you heal the insurance pays for it but then when you go in and get the same insurance they say they don't pay for it you see people walk around with braces and on the teeth and having surgery done to lose weight so where are these Insurance places at that does all this cuz I would love to have it done

    Whoa, hellfire I went Juarez when I was 15, and it is this very poor border town. Now the cartels have ruined it for tourism. I would never, ever go there for surgery. And I speak Spanish.

    I went to Tijuana for the sleeve this month, had an amazing experience!
    Research the lap band here in the USA, it is horrible!
    Tijuana was amazing and the hospital was cleaner then any American hospital, the staff and Doctor was amazing!
    The key is research your doctor, hospital, after care!

    Medical complications can happen anywhere. Funny how they ALL have lost significant amounts of weight and they all look great! I have had numerous surgeries in Mexico and had no complications and great care. You have to do your research.

    This is so stupid, you exposing 3 people, but you don’t bring thousands others that save millions of dollars in medical treatment and medicine, I have medical experience in both countries and I have more poor care in USA more that Mexico. I do not defend bad practices in Mexico, just this tv show is not right when you expose one little part of the issue and not the other success parts of this history.

    It's NOT about health insurance. It's about health!
    How about make better life choices and take responsibility for your own health??? Dont cry genetics either! I realize heredity can play a role but, there is much that can be achieved through diet and exercise.

    Also, ignore the real problem, people go to places to seek “help” rather than start taking care of their own health, always seeking the easier way out. Blame a country for your poor health care doesn’t make sense to me. A lot of people go out of state to get cosmetic surgery done and obviously it is life changing and an extremely risk for o e to take and act upon correctly. Crazy.

    Even me as an Mexican, the only place in Mexico I would get surgery from is Mexico City because its more modern and they actually have accredited and recognized Dr’s. But even then, I would just save up the extra money and stay in the US.

    Okay. Once upon a time I got fat. For like 2 years after my divorce I just let it go. I lost it all on my own eating healthy and exercising losing 80 pounds in less than 6 months. You got yourself there you need to get yourself out. Surgery is great for things people can’t control but weight (besides a condition, is not one of those beyond your control things. Also, they did all lose weight at least. Lol

    Lack of public healthcare and neo liberalism makes medicine a business in the USA. The prices there are just ridiculous because hospitals can make whatever prices they want (specially without public healthcare)
    When visiting US every single travel agency advices healthcare insurance because US is a jungle in terms of health...just the ideia of recovering in a hotel and I know US does the same disgusting! Glad I live in Europe

    Be careful what you wish for.
    My heart goes out to these people and many others who have suffered at the hands of surgeons. People are focusing too much on wanting results fast, now, today.
    I hope this video changes the minds of people considering this type of operation.
    Start by walking slow short walks then walk further each day, you will soon firm up, lose weight plus it will improve your heart and health. Granted it will not be an instant weight loss but you will be around a lot longer in the long run! ;) sorry 'run' wasn't intended...groan!

    Btw.... Insurance does cover all weight loss programs if you jump through their hoops which are:
    Spending a documented year in a weight loss program
    Have a documented diet journal
    Psych exams
    Blood test and MRI.
    I guarantee that none of these people even tried to go through insurance.

And if tge facilities dont tell you tge risks vs rewards and whatnot ASK. RESEARCH. MAYBE AT LEAST have a consult with a real dr HERE in tge usa and then maybe then go elsewhere

    Cofee, two eggs, and a fresh fruit, coconut oil and honey smoothie for breakfast - 4 portioned meals of grilled chicken or fish, olive oil, leafy green vegetables and hydration a day, weight training for 45 mins 4× a week. With 1 alliwed cheat meal a week...... and there is no way you wont lose weight and keep it off forever. Or fly to Mexico and have your intestines mauled by Paco and his hombres.

    My aunt lives in the USA and she wanted to have a breast implant or something like that and she went to a doctor in there and 2 weeks one of the implant exploded, she came here to Mexico to get everything solved and she is better now ,I think we shouldn’t generalice, in every country that can happen, the thing is you have to do your homework and investigate, ask recommendations all that.

    Guess you get what you pay for??? idk....Plus, this is an elective cosmetic procedure NOT considered health care (not until the aftermath hits after you go out of the country, (NOT just Mexico, folks!) for surgery, get butchered and then come back to the US, start suffering the consequences and complications--including infections, diseases, etc.)Yeah, Then it becomes health care, due to your risk-taking and uneducated choices; which THEN results in "Guess which country and it's people get/have to pay (generally speaking thank you) to cure and treat you because of your decisions and choices? Sorry not sorry.

  • Babu

    I think this is completely insane, like an act of war. They knew enough to know what they did to those people hurting them, not helping them. How do you leave a woman with an open stomach? Then he comes out and vacuums out a blood clot when she is dripping in blood. Freddy Kruger couldn't have mangled her up that much. God is keeping her alive and it is a miracle.
    I think this is an act of war on the US and Americans. They lured them over there and made them all kinds of false promises and had a nice clean clinic, so it would fool them. All they wanted to do was make fools of Americans, steal their money and leave them to die.
    I don't know how they are going to sue these people in Mexico. I guess their lawsuit is about them advertising in the US trying to get gullible people to trust them. It is worse than those time share salesmen who give you a free cheap electronic or some free trip and then insist you buy some rental property that you have to pay for the rest of your life. They steal your money, but these people stole their health, happiness and lives.
    They have lap bands eating through their stomachs, and then what they did to that woman, it is obscene. A ruptured spleen kills people. For all they know, these unscrupulous doctors lifted out a few organs too so they could sell them. They treated these people like pieces of meat. It is sadistic and evil. Oh and people say these countries have good deals? That is subjective.
