  1. I had VSG sleeve with the Weight loss team in Puerto Vallarta. You have access to Gerald Witt before and after surgery. He is 4 years post op. They have a facebook group with over 2000 people. Not a ton of posting but there are a lot of resources. The hospital was top notch and Dr. Para was great. My experience was very good but almost 30 days post op and no issues. I am a very self directed individual though. The cost was $4200 which was all the doctors hospital etc. There were a few other charges and for me I too the family and rented an Airbnb. It was a great time for my wife and 3 kids but even for me it was nice. If you are like me and insurance doesn't cover it was great for me.
