    Thanks for starting this post Phoenixrise. I'm looking for a surgeon as well. I was leaning towards Dr. Almanza but I'm still not feeling totally confidant about the decision, so I'm keeping my options open. Does anyone else have any information to add?
  12. Daddyof3Es
    I am going with Dr. Osuna. She is Dr. Lopez's wife. Has anyone used her? I am working with Janese from A Lighter Me.
  13. skinny2be
    I didn't use Dr.Osuna but I'm sure she is just as qualified as anyone else on the Lighter Me Team.
    Janese is great help and always willing to answer questions. I had a great time!!! My journey is on my blog along with before and after pics. I still have about 25-30 pounds to go.

    To The_Redhead:
    I do see a lot of people on here that have used Dr. Almanza and have had great success. So I won't say anything bad about him. As a personal choice for me I ruled him out because I wanted to be in an actual hospital and I was concerned about how many surgeries he did a day.That's why I chose Dr.Lopez @ A Lighter Me. Ultimately the choice is yours and as long as you have done your research and you feel comfortable with your decision that's what matters. Good luck to you!!

    Just got back from Tijuana yesterday! I had my surgery on Monday, Aug 19th. I went through A Lighter Me and had a great experience!!! Janese was wonderful and so was her crew, Abraham and Eduardo. They were at the hospital every day I was there and the hotel afterwards. They took us shopping the day before we left and I never had to look for them or could not find them if I needed anything. Which I didn't because they were always there. My surgeon was Dr.Ortiz at Mi Doctor Hospital. My sister went with me and she had a bed in the room with me! She stayed the whole time. I had no pain afterwards, no nausea, no vomiting and no gas! Thank God! I've been able to eat the broth, water, gatorade, isopure. So far so good. I loved using A Lighter Me! And to top it off, Dr. Ortiz came back to my hotel room the night before I left to make sure everything was okay and to see if I had final questions and he gave me final home care instructions! Also, Tijuana was great! Not one problem walking around and the Mariott Hotel was beautiful!!!

    I had my Surgery on July 22nd in Tijuana with Dr. Almanza. I had a great experience, no pain, no vomiting and the surgery went off without a hitch. I joined his patient group on these forums and asked a ton of questions so I knew exactly what to expect going in, no surprises, everything was just as they laid it out for me and I wasn't scared for a minute. Might have been if I didn't know so much ahead of time. If there is anything you want to know about Dr. Almanza, the clinic, the care or the staff, just go to my profile and post. I started at 273 lbs and I am now down 54 pounds that will never, ever again be on this body, I am so happy!! I went through Weight Loss Agents and the surgery was $4799.

    Other: Have had a wonderful experience. Surgery is done at a real hospital (Hospital Mi Doctor) and you stay in the hospital for 2 nights, then 2 more nights at a very nice hotel (Marriott), all included. You also get a night in the hotel before your surgery. Dra. Valenzuela will be out on maternity leave in December and will return in March.
