Gastric Sleeve

Looking to have wls soon in Mexico. I've struggled with my weight for years. I did a good job maintaining it with the help of diet pills, but after having my daughter who is now almost 3 I've struggled with losing. I've gained a lot of extra weight.

Amazing experience with Dr Maytorena

I got sleeved April 18, 2017. My experience was phenomenal, but I only got to meet him once, for about five minutes. He seemed shy, but very professional and concerned. I felt very comfortable in his care. His staff of nurses and doctors were great. I recovered very fast from surgery and hardly felt any type of pain. I feel lucky in this regard. I felt as if I were the most important patient...

Getting my Gastric Sleeve, Going to Dr. Maytorena on 01/11/17

I'm married and a mother of 2 (15 and 12), I was overweight most of my adult life and about 7 years ago I lost a lot of weight. I went from 196lbs to 125lbs and kept my weight off for about 5 years. In the past 2 years as I'm getting closer to my 40 (I'm 39 now) I've been putting weight on. About 2 years ago I had a mommy makeover since I was still in good shape and once I recovered from...
