I was really nervous attempting to go to Mexico to have this surgery done. I did a lot of research on Dr. Almanza and was very impressed. I was even more impressed when I met him and his staff of doctors. They were all so professional and very kind. I really am grateful to them for the time they took with me and the other ladies that came on the same date. The surgery was a huge success for me. I weighed in at 315 lbs when I arrived. I didn't want to believe it, but my weight had gotten way out of control. Dieting and exercise was not working for me - no mater how much I tried. I would lose 10 and gain 15 back, lose 15 and gain 20. It was a yo-yo effect. In addition, my blood pressure was out of control and my feet were swelling due to water retention. I was too young to have these problems and I wanted to do something about it. Dr. Almanza was a God send. The surgery went really well and it was fast! I was able to stay for 4-5 days for recovery and his staff was on call and available for anything that I needed. I was comfortable and was monitored daily to ensure that there were no problems. When I left Mexico, I was fine and was able to return to work the next day without issue. I now weight 180lbs and I feel amazing! My doctor took me off of all of my blood pressure medication. I am able to exercise 3 times a week and my metabolism is sky high! This surgery made a world of difference for me and I would encourage anyone to take the leap. It was more than worth it and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Thank you Dr. Mario Almanza for changing my life - for the better.
