Kyomi

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Lost 91lbs

Being overweight was difficult, things like breathing and moving around were hard. Before the surgery, I was around 236 lbs. I’ve tried all the diet fads, exercising, fasting, but I needed a permanent solution to my weight problem. I had the gastric sleeve surgery and it was a very simple procedure, it only took like an hour. I quickly saw results in the very beginning, but the most results I saw was when I combined daily exercising with gastric sleeve. The weight started dropping immediately. I’m currently at 155 lbs, I’ve lost about 80 lbs. and I’m on the right course for the amount of weight I should be losing. Really happy to say, clothes wise, I’m looking for mediums from an extra extra large, so that is a plus for me. After having surgery and losing a lot of weight, I have more energy, I have more spring to my step. My only regret is that I didn’t do this sooner.

Kimberly

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Lost 86 lbs

At my heaviest weight before the surgery I was 225 lbs. I was floating between an 18 and 20. I had already had the Lap-Band surgery and did not have much success. I went to Dr. Naim to help me get my weight under control and save my life. I had the gastric sleeve surgery in March of 2014. Results were practically immediate, I remember a few days after the surgery getting on the scale and having already lost 7 lbs. It just kept going from there. Recovery time for me was about 5 days, and I went back to work after a week. My current weight is 156 lbs. and I have lost 64 lbs. I’m currently in between a size 8 and a 10, I never imagined being a single-digit clothing size. And the benefits have been phenomenal. My blood pressure and blood sugar are lower. I have more energy, I’m more active. I chose this office because I did serious research on the procedures and the doctors and I had to choose this place. The staff here is amazing and I would absolutely, 100% recommend this procedure to anyone who is struggling with their weight.

Juliana

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Lost 86 lbs

My weight before the surgery was 207 lbs. I used to wear size 16 in clothes. My biggest frustration was shopping, looking for the right size to fit. It was hard. It was horrible. I never liked the way I looked. I was facing too many health problems, heart problems, sleep apnea, high cholesterol, and hypertension. One day I made the decision that I needed to do something about it. I had the bariatric sleeve in June 2013. Everything went well. I had no problems after the surgery and I was able to go back to work after two weeks. I started seeing results after 30 days of the surgery. I lost 20 lbs., then another 10, then another 10. Currently I’m wearing size 0, sometimes double 0 and my current weight varies between 105 to 110 lbs. My lifestyle has changed big time, now I like to go to the beach, I like to go out and socialize. I love what I see when I look at myself in front of the mirror. After seeing the results with this surgery, I would definitely do it again. I would encourage every person out there that needs weight loss to do it. It’s amazing.

Nikesha

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Lost Over 75 LBS

Before my surgery, I weighed about 262 lbs. I knew I needed to lose the weight because of my family, my daughter. I thought to myself, “How am I ever going to teach her about taking care of herself if I don’t take care of myself?” I knew I needed to move forward with the surgery. After finding this practice, Dr. Naim really took the time to explain each surgery and what kind of results I could expect. After lots of research, I had the gastric sleeve surgery on November 13, 2014 and it was probably one of the best days of my life. My current weight is 188 lbs. and that means I’ve lost about 68 lbs. in just five months. There have been so many benefits other than weight loss since having the surgery. I have more energy to run around with my daughter and play. I can keep up with her and I feel more comfortable and confident in myself. This is by far one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Without a doubt, I would do it all over again.

Donna

LAP-BAND®

Lost Over 100 LBS

Going into surgery, I weighed approximately 227 lbs. It was very tough being at that weight and it had a big impact on my social life. I wouldn’t even go out with my friends or family, it was a struggle for me. It took my self-esteem. It was very difficult for me to function in a social manner. I didn’t feel like I fit in. When I moved to California, I decided “New life,” and that’s what I did when I decided to have the LAP-BAND® surgery done. I saw my results in approximately two weeks, immediately after the surgery I could just feel it. I felt great. I found the recovery to be very quick. I presently weigh 150 lbs. and have lost approximately 80 lbs. I used to be a 22-24, the clothes were just not big enough. Now, I’m a size 8 or a 6, and I love it! My lifestyle has changed immensely. I hike, I ride bikes, I go to the gym as much as possible. I just really enjoy not having the weight but most of all it’s not difficult. With all the weight off, it’s so easy. After seeing my results, I would definitely come back and do it again. I don’t know what took me so long!

Lavina

LAP-BAND®

Lost Over 122 LBS

At my highest weight, I was 370 lbs. It kept me away from a lot of people, family events. I couldn’t wear pants, I was limited to dresses that I had to buy online. I was very uncomfortable in everything that I wore at that size. I was tired of being unhealthy and uncomfortable. I knew I had to do something drastic to change everything that I was, so I chose the LAP-BAND® for my weight loss surgery. It helped control cravings, my food intake, and a month after the surgery that I started seeing results. I lost 20 lbs. my first month and I’ve lost 120 lbs. since my procedure. It feels great to have lost so much weight. I can actually see something that someone else is wearing, go look for it and put it on. There’s so much more that I’m able to do since the surgery. I have so much more energy and I’m able to work out with friends. I’m more open and more social. Dr. Naim made me feel very comfortable and motivated. I would definitely do the procedure again, in a heartbeat.

Ashley

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Lost Over 122 LBS

I struggled with my weight for the majority of my life. Before my surgery, I was very uncomfortable and felt overwhelmed with myself. I have two toddlers and I wanted to be able to keep up with them, enjoy life and be happy. I knew at that point I needed to change my life. I needed to do it for me, for my kids, to get my life back. After a lot of research and talking with the doctor, I decided to go with the gastric sleeve surgery. It was the best choice for me and my lifestyle. Recovery time was very minimal for me. It was about a week before I was up and going with my kids and I saw results fairly quickly after the surgery. Within the first month I was down 30 lbs. My goal weight was 140 lbs. and I actually reached that before the year. I’ve lost a total of 90 lbs. and it’s only been about 11 months. I’m down to a size medium or small and the difference in my confidence level is extreme. The surgery has changed my life for the better for so many reasons. My relationship with my husband is so much more open. Another big one is definitely playing around with my kids, being able to be active. They’re growing up and I just want to enjoy every part with them.
