Who was your Mexico Surgeon?



Recommended Posts

7500-9200 in Canadian dollars , but the OCC is one of the more expensive places. I do believe many people had great Success with Dr.illan , I think... at a much lower cost like 5500 Canadian. Just ask around in here, but make sure you pick a well known place, you need to have heard from lots of others, not 2 or 3...(I'm my books anyway)

good Luck!

Thanks veryyyy much. It seems like these Dr's are constantly moving around. I called Trinity Medical. Nice guy. Great price. He said they just hired a new surgeon. Younger guy but has done over 1000 sleeves. Dr Luis Pasten. Ever heard of him?

I haven't, to be honest I went with the OCC, cause they were on Operha , Dr.oz and another day time news show.... I would stick to there or with Dr.illan at oasis I think. Why go to the unknown.

I used Dr Elias Ortiz through ALM. My surgery was March 27 and I doing really well! I do wish I had taken 3 weeks off because I do a pretty physically demanding job and I was EXHAUSTED when I got home. As long as you can make peace with "Mexico time" and how everything takes a little longer down there- you'll be fine! (I used to live in Hawaii and Island time is a very real thing-it's similar to that)

Dr. Alvarez for me. I think he's the most expensive option for the Mexican surgeons, but he knows his stuff. He only does the VSG and I think he's done over 10,500 now.

Dr. Ponce de Leon... very good experience.

I scheduled my surgery with Dr. Ponce July 10th. I am very nervous. Could you share your experience? Thank you!

I used Dr. Illian and his team. I had surgery April 24th. The following days were wonderful due to the valets and their constant attention to my and my companions needs.

I also used Dr. Jalil Illan and had a great experience. I am 3 1/2 months post op and have lost 50 lbs. The hospital rooms were modern and the nurses were friendly and attentive. The valets with BariatricPal are wonderful. I am going back next month as my sister's companion. Believe me when I say that I wouldn't let her do this unless I had 100% confidence in Dr. Illan. She is my baby sister, best friend and a mother to two small children.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
