  1. While I appreciate everyones comments, just to add my own experience in ... I had my first surgery with Dr Almanza in 2015 and everything was fine. My incisions did not get infected nor did I have any other complications. I just had surgery again 1/17/19 and, so far, everything is good. My incisions even look better than before. I have no signs of infection nor any other complications. I do feel for the people who had bad experiences but mine were great.

  7. Thanks for the information but its a little too late for me. I used weightlossagents but as a nurse and having bariatric surgery before, I didn't ask any questions. I had revision surgery (lapband to sleeve) April 7, 2015 and had a great experience. ☺️
  8. everyone has different experiences and i had a great experience with dr. almanza.... sorry that you had a bad experience ????
