Dr. Illan, (full name is Dr. Selim Jalil Illán...

Dr. Illan, (full name is Dr. Selim Jalil Illán Fraijo) is such a talented surgeon. From the moment I got to the hospital I knew I was in the right spot for me. I never had any hesitations once I got there and surgery was a wonderful success! I'm down 108lbs at 6 months! The hospital was wonderful and my surgery has been a dream come true. My BMI was over 50 so the price was a little more but I would do it again and again!  LOVE MY SLEEVE!

?I would like to lose 40 more pounds...

I would like to lose 40 more pounds. I still have a lot of restriction on my stomach so I eat very small amounts. I eat mainly lean proteins, shakes and some veggies/fruits. I can eat about 2-2 1/2 ounces of meats and a couple bites of veggies. I eat no pasta/rice/breads but sometimes will eat saltines w/ peanut butter. Love , love, love my sleeve :)

Dr. Illan

Dr. Illan, (full name is Dr. Selim Jalil Illán Fraijo) Dr. Illan is caring and such a talented surgeon. Day after surgery you would never know I even had surgery. The whole team is top notch and I would refer anyone to Dr. Ilan, in fact, I took my daughter to be sleeved by Dr. Illan 5 months after my success!
