  • Surgeon: Dr. Almanza
By most people's standards I wasn't morbidly obese. I didn't qualify for surgery in the US. I had gained weight about 10 years ago and never could successfully lose it. I had finally lost back down to 170 but that was about average for the past 10 years. I had checked into weight loss surgery before but like I said I didn't qualify and I was apprehensive about the follow up that came with lap band, as I travel alot with my job. I lost my husband last year and as a result I lost my medical insurance. I tried applying for private insurance but kept getting denied due to my weight. So I knew I had to do something!

When I found Dr. Almaza it was like a God send. It was convienent and I qualified, and with the gastric sleeve there is no follow up! All of which, I was looking for. The staff stayed in constant contact, answered questions I didn't even know I had and got me booked in about 10 days of my decision.

The trip there was easy, they pick you up and provide for your every need. Each member from the drivers to the nurses are caring, courtesy, and most helpful! I followed their advice and got up and walked every two hours after surgery and felt great. I virtually had no pain! I felt so good, I was in full hair and makeup the very next day. I am almost two months post surgery and am now down to 145lbs, so 25 lbs in the two months. I haven't been this weight in nine years!

I would strongly recommend Dr. Almaza and the gastric sleeve to anyone that is seeking to make a huge change in their life with minimal down time!
