  1. I had the gastric sleeve and need it redone. I’ve gained about 70 lbs . Want to have it done this summer.

  2. I have also regained weight after having gastric sleeve procedure done. I want to return to Mexico for revision surgery.

  3. I had gastric sleeve with Dr Louisiana Valenzuela August 2013, and went from 306 to 159 pounds. I’m 5’4. I have had 2 babies since and have gained back up to 276 pounds slowly over 7&1/2 years. I am looking to get either duodenal switch or gastric sleeve revision so I can achieve a BMI that will help me qualify for plastic surgery in the future.
