• Surgeon: Dr. Fernando Garcia

  • Procedure: Gastric Sleeve

  • Location: Tijuana, MX

“Unlike a lot of people who has this type of surgery, I wasn’t overweight for many years. In fact, I started gaining weight one day at a rapid speed and thought I would NEVER quit. After a whopping 130 lbs weight gain in one year, I found a doctor that found the problem. As soon as he started me on my meds, I never gained another ounce. Problem is, the weight was coming off at a snail’s pace. We’re talking MAYBE 10 lbs a year.

So I looked into having this surgery. I’m SO glad I did!! When I read others’ stories and was so inspired, I use to chuckle when I read the same ol’ lines again and again… “I have my life back” “My only regret is not doing it sooner”

Well, there’s a reason they keep saying that! Now I too say those same things. I truly DO have my life back! And my only regret really is not doing it sooner!

People are literally speechless when they see me. Because the weight falls off so quickly, even people I see semi-often were being shocked out of their skin.

I’m also extremely happy with my decision to go to Mexico and have the surgery. I never feared for my life one moment. I walked all around the place and felt very welcome by EVERYONE.

THANK YOU so much!”
