I'm not sure where to start! Before I had the surgery I weighed 279 pounds. I had my surgery 1-25-14 and i now weigh 250. I was very nervous about going to tijuana for the surgery but after I got there it wasn't to bad. I couldn't believe how many ppl were there to have the surgery. We landed at the san diego airport and while waiting for the hospital to pick us up,there were about 4 other ppl there waiting also. The hotel was very beautiful. You stay at the hotel before and after surgery. On call nurses at the hotel. Over half of the hotel are patients. People say all the time that this was a life changing experiance and I agree. If I had my choice to do it sgain I would. After I get to my goal weight and if I have left over skin or lose my boobs then I'm going back for the mommy makeover package for nip and tucks and a boob job. I could never in my life afford to get the surgery in the united states and ppl say cheaper isnt always better but i had no other choice. I was taking the chance that something could happento me but ive done so much research that i new that i was going to be ok and i am.I don't have any health issues. Major heartburn though. I would recommend this to anyone. I can't thank the doctor and nurses enough. This is a new life for me. Ill finally be able to be the mom and wife that I haven't been able to be. If your truly unhappy with your weight and dieting doesn't work like it didn't work for me then what do you have to lose. Ill try to post pictures. Good luck everyone.
