Sleeve or DS? Which one to get

If you're looking to lose 100-130 lb a sleeve is more than enough without going into a more agressive procedure with more complications and a much different lifestyle that the DS offers. In our practice a sleeve is crafted in 25 minutes and the results are outstanding. Look for longterm complications and I know that will help you decide. 

warm regards,
