Help choosing a surgeon in MX



Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I'm new here and need help finding the right surgeon in MX. I'm from California. I've been struggling with all the requirements these different Dr's put on us. I had a goal weight to meet and I just cannot lose the rest of it, I mean that is why I need the surgery Bc i cannot do it on my own. Any advice will help. Thank you

A friend went to a lighter me in Mexico. She had a good experience.

I would highly recommend Dr Elias Ortiz, from A Lighter Me... As an ICU nurse I had high standards for the surgeon who would do my sleeve. I am nearly 2 years out, and am highly satisfied with my results and the people and staff, at the hospital, A Lighter Me and the hotel, you stay at, are awesome. Since I have had my surgery, and the results I've had, my brother in law, my nephew, a co-worker of my sister and a friend of mine have had surgery with A Lighter Me, and I've heard nothing but positive results. Good luck on your journey!

After doing some serious research I found that the surgeon I was going to use is bad news. We found a News program from San Diego that did a series on "Dr" Almanza with Weight Loss Agents. PLEASE do NOT use him.

I cancelled my surgery and they tried to say it was a smear campaign... We are currently looking at other surgeons or staying here in the USA.Best of luck. Just do your research!

I don't if you have heard , there's a few support groups on Facebook.

You should be able to get some help with your diet and sergon in Mexico.

I myself thinking about paying for my VGS.. I want a sergon here in US.

Dr Umbach in Las Vegas charges $10,400

Dr Pleatmen in Michigan charges 11,400

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
