    Unhappy I saved up 3500 for the sleeve in mexico, now their charging 4500 and I can't afford it. Help!

    Anyone know of anything that costs less but still a good doctor?! I want to go with my mom when she goes in two or three weeks! Please share if you know of anything less.

    Can you finance the remaining $1000?

    I think Dr Almanza office is offering the lapband for this price and many of his former patient said he is good, he's the one doing my sleeve next month. Check into it or see if you can get a loan for the rest of the money for the sleeve. Good luck.

    I'm not sure if I can finance.. I only have one small credit card. Who would I try to get a loan through? Just didn't think I could finance anything since this would be in mexico! Thanks for the info about the doctor I will try to contact and see what options I have.!

    I had mine in Mexico and paid $9,000 with Dr. Guillermo Alvarez. My doctor webpage had links to finance companies that finance cosmetic surgeries. Google it...Where is your mom's doctor located? Most of the doctor's along the Mexican border cater to American patients and have financing...Call and ask them!! I borrowed from my best friend when my ex did not pay back child support. It took me 7 months to pay her back, but I did. Good luck Sweetie!!!

    Contact Dr. Almanza's office, they have their own financing company.

    I know Dr Almanza's office will finance. Don't try and find a surgeon cheaper... its worth the wait if you need to save up for a little longer.
    Straight forward. Straight facts. Whether you like the truth or not... I'm not made of sugar coating
