Be Better Bariatric was started with a vision to make world-class bariatric procedures accessible to the masses. For decades, the concept of medically induced weight loss was something that always involves some form of surgery. At Be Better Bariatrics, we are redefining what is possible.

In the field of bariatric, innovation is key. The surgical procedures that we follow even today date back to the 1950s. However, there are better ways to achieve weight loss, but they go unnoticed.

The aim of Dr. Marco Bustamante, Medical Director at Be Better Bariatrics, is to bring innovative weight loss procedures to the people. This is a great service to people who are struggling to manage their weight, they don’t fit the criteria for a surgical bariatric procedure or simply are scared or do not want to undergo surgery. Being in this profession for years, we understand that excessive weight is not an issue to be taken lightly. Body weight can impact your lifestyle and health more than you think It can. In extreme cases, the body may suffer life-threatening diseases or chronic conditions that affect your quality of life and put your health at risk.


At Be Better Bariatrics, we want to help people live a healthy life.

At Be Better Bariatrics, we want to help people live a healthy life. This is why we have a more holistic approach to weight loss.

They help our clients in getting their lifestyle back on track post-procedure. By having the multi-prong approach to weight loss, our clients are able to make the most out of the medical procedure.

At Be Better Bariatrics, we strive to be at the forefront of innovation and have a constant passion for learning more.
