Gastric Sleeve in Mexico - Dr. Ariel Ortiz - I'm on my Way! - Mexico

Hi Everyone! I've booked to have a sleeve done by Dr. Ariel Ortiz in Tijuana on 9/10/15 and have much gratitude towards all the lovely people who have shared their stories and experiences here. I set today, August 1st, as D-Day. I started my high protein diet to take off the 5-10% body weight prior to surgery. I bought a fitbit to keep me motivated and I'm tracking my intake on...

36 Years Old, Low BMI, 3 Kids Later and I'm Taking the Plunge with Ariel Ortiz, OCC - Mexico

I'm just shy of 5' 8" and weigh 206 lbs. I don't recognize myself - the last couple of years after having children back to back I've gained about 30 lbs and seem to keep gaining. I loathe photos! I've always struggled with my weight but was never in the obese category until the last couple years. I have dieted and I am able to get to the high side of the overweight category but keep gaining it...

Getting the Weight off Once and for All... - Tijuana, MX

I've been reading about everyone else's experience on Real Self and it has helped me decide to have my surgery at the obesity control center in Tijuana MX. I can say that I was curious about going out of country from the start because I am privately paying for the procedure and the local hospital wants almost 3X as much money. My husband finally got on board with the idea and now I am doing...

World's Best Doctors!!! - Mexico

I had gastric plication surgery (it's not a drop down menu choice) almost 7-months ago. Dr. Ortiz and the entire staff and facility are world class and wonderful. I could not be happier and healthier. I now weight 124lbs and I can run, not feel like eating all of the time, and wear size 25/26 jeans. I am so happy and I eat healthier. The staff and facility are wonderful. My only problem is now...

Operation: Get Hot - Tijuana, Mexico

I have extensively researched doctors, looked at numerous reviews, talked to different offices, and through all of that, I've decided to choose Dr. Ortiz for my surgery. I'm nervous about it, to be sure, but this is the right thing to do. I'm currently at 205 lbs, 5'5", and though I'm not as obese as I need to be to have the surgery statewide, I'm under the wire for Mexico. I have tried...

51 Yr. Old; Tired of Being Obese!! - Mexico, MX

I started by journey in October 2013, after many, many years of weight loss and larger weight gains it was time to take care of myself. I chose Dr. Ortiz in Tijuana after a friends experience, plus my insurance would not cover my surgery. My husband was in full support of my decision. I took a friend with me to MX. I weighed 290 lbs., and am 5' 5" tall. My weight came off really well and I had...

Amazing Experience at the Obesity Control Center - Tijuana, Mexico

I had the best care at the OCC. The entire team from the very beginning were professional and I didn't feel like I was in a foreign country having surgery. I'll be there tomorrow to start the plastic surgery portion of this journey. From the beginning with the emails with the coordinator, to answering my questions promptly, to Skyping with Dr Martinez, to my arrival at the hotel and the actual...

Dr Ortiz Best Choice. Mexico, MX

My Experience was amazing, state of art and immaculately clean facility.
