I had thought about gastric sleeve for a few years and kept thinking i will lose the weight on my own. Year after year I realized I was only harming myself as the weight was not coming off. After meeting Dr. Mailapur and his staff I knew what I had to do! 6 months out and I have gone from a size 22-24 down to size 10! I know i will lose more and I am thankful for the tool that Dr. Mailapur has given me. My only regret is not doing it sooner!
