  • Surgeon: Dr. Mario Almanza
After years of research, I finally decided that 2015 was going to be the year I take back control over my health and happiness. At 274 lbs, I was the heaviest I had ever been. I was tired all the time and not in the best of health physically. What finally solidified things for me was, losing a patient to a heart attack who was the exact same age as I was and watching her family's emotional outbursts. I made the decision shortly after to be sleeved, came across and the rest is history.

My experience from beginning to end, with WLA and Almanza was definitely a good one! I felt well informed and comfortable with the entire process and was confident in Dr. Almanza's hands.
I love the fact that they keep the lines of communication open and are always available to answer any questions or listen to concerns. If any of you have researched having surgical procedures abroad, you know that communication is a BIG issue. I am going through that now as I am researching surgeons for post gastric sleeve cosmetic surgery! It is an absolute pain!

But here it is, almost a year later they are still reaching out to check on me.
About The Surgery:

Dr. Almanza came in and assured me I was in good hands after I was cleared to have surgery. I woke up in minimal pain...only discomfort from gas, which was normal. There were no other complications. I was back home in 5 days and back to work in 2 wks. It hasn't been all peaches and cream learning to adjust to this new lifestyle change but it has been worth it.

Yesterday I weighed in at 166. I have lost over 100 lbs!!! I feel amazing and at least 15 years younger! My confidence has gone way up. I'm dating again, and I am happier than I have been in a really long time. Dr. Almanza rocks! I am more than satisfied with my decision. I am happy. I am healthy, and I am fabulous!
