The surgery was a non event! I went in came out and 2 1/2 hours after recovery I was up and walking. The staff is amazing! Always available and ready to help! Dr. Almanza came the next morning to check on me and let me know how my procedure went and what to expect. I had no complications and the incisions are healing nicely. So far after 15 days I've lost 12 lbs. I haven't been this weight in over 2 years! If you're hesitant don't be. It was a great experience.
