Leo V. Had Gastric Sleeve Surgery with Dr. Jeremy Korman

Being a lot healthier is good motivation for me but there are some more mundane motivations as well such as to be able to buy clothes in standard sizes and fit into a coach airline seat.

Leo V.

I had high blood pressure when I first came to Marina Weight Management Center. Six months later, I chose to have the sleeve gastrectomy procedure with Dr. Korman. The Marina Weight Management Center team helped me lose about 80 pounds prior to the surgery. I have now lost over 100 pounds and I am wearing jeans that would have been too small for me when I was 15 years old! I think that the biggest win has been conquering food cravings. But I have to give credit to the team. They obviously knew what they were doing. They set things up gradually so that there weren’t any huge challenges to overcome, but small conquerable ones. If you desire long-term results then that’s the way to do it. Introducing things into your day-to-day slowly is far more effective than sudden, radical change. It’s great to be able to buy clothes in standard sizes and fit into a coach airline seat with room to spare. The surgery doesn’t do the work you’re supposed to do. Make sure that you can live the lifestyle that comes with it before you decide on any surgery.
