    Welcome! I am a Mobile native living in Orange Beach for past 16 years. Dr. Almanza performed my surgery and all went well. I have no regrets what so ever. Best wishes and enjoy this life changing journey.

    I'm just doing the sleeve by itself. I have a friend who was at a start weight of over 400 pounds and did just the sleeve. He's had remarkable results with just the sleeve.
