I am three years out from having my procedure. I do not regret it a bit. I have never had any complications. I lost 110lbs my first year. I have gained a few pounds back, but I needed to, i was to thin. I feel amazing. Additionally, my joints don't hurt anymore, and I can breathe. Its one of the best decisions I made and Dr. Almanza and his team treated my very well. In fact one of my friends had the procedure there a month ago and had the same great experience.
