  • Name: Down to Ideal Weight

  • Surgeon: Dr. Mario Almanza
I had my surgery by Dr. Almanza in Mexico last September. I went to Mexico alone and made it through the procedure just fine. The customer service was excellent and the staff at the hotel were very nice.

My weight at my heaviest was 260 and I was a diabetic. I tried eating healthy and exercising and was able to get down to 225, but still had issues controlling my diabetes.I weighed 225 at the time of my surgery in September and today I weigh 169, which is below my target weight of 180.

Since my surgery, I have not taken any medication for diabetes and my health is better than it has been in over 20 years. I am wearing the same size jeans I wore in junior high.

I recommend the surgery for anyone who has tried and failed and wants to make a permanent change in their life.

The pain for a couple of days and discomfort for a couple of weeks is well worth the life changing process you will go through in the long run.
