  • Surgeon: Dr. Mario Almanza
At 57 and a few health problems and potentially more to come I made a commitment to myself to get this weight off. Although heavy I worked out doing Zumba for the past several years. I made the arrangements after doing my due diligence researching Dr Almanza. I was comfortable with my findings. On August 1st my beautiful daughter passed away at the age of 29, and four months pregnant. My surgery was scheduled for August 22nd, 2017. For myself and my daughter I kept the date. I knew she was with me. My awesome husband took her place and accompanied me. He was amazing and by my side through it all. I have no regrets. Everyone was so kind and accommodating. The hotel was great, everyone from the bell hop to the 24 hr on call nurse team was A+. I am so happy I did this. By the 6th post op I felt like my old self. I may treat myself to additional procedures next year depending on my final results. So glad I did this for myself. I'm 2 weeks and 4 days out down 16 pounds.
