Dr. Mailapur has been great throughout the entire process. I was really nervous about having the sleeve surgery, but he and his staff did a great job of helping me understand the outcome and benefits of doing it. I wasn’t pressured at all, and I’m happy I did it. During the pre-op diet, I lost 17 lbs. Now I’m 31 days post-op and have lost another 31 lbs. for a total of 48 lbs.! My clothes fit better. My blood pressure is perfect. I don’t have sleep apnea nor acid reflux anymore. I’m a lot more confident. It was the best decision of my life!
