The 10th of the month will forever be a significant day for me. My gastric sleeve surgery was exactly 4 months ago today with Dr. Louisiana Valenzuela. I always see amazing transformations in this group but I honestly never thought I would have even close to as amazing results as others. Sooo glad I had this surgery. What an amazing tool!

Dr. Valenzuela, her crew, and the hospital were very professional. I had amazing results and have since referred 12 family and friends back to her and her partner! I would have the surgery with her again in a heartbeat! (Starting weight 303, at my 1-year post op 165. Now four years out and holding at 170-which is where I wanted to be) I cannot recommend Dr. V enough!!!! Feb. 15, 2018

Jamie – Gastric Sleeve Surgery on December 2018 with Dr. Louisiana Valenzuela

I was sleeved by Dr. Louisiana Valenzuela on 12/21/18. I traveled alone and received excellent care from the team of doctors and nurses at . Although the hospital and rooms are a bit dated (by U.S. standards), the OR was pristine. I had zero complications, and in 9 months I have (fairly effortlessly) lost 75lbs; putting me just 15lbs from my goal weight! I am thrilled, and would highly recommend Mexico Bariatric Center to anyone.
