    I had my sleeve surgery done in the states. However there is a place in Mexico that gets rave reviews.

    I belong to a plastic surgery thread on Facebook as with the weight loss I have lots of skin. This place is always highly recommended.

    I have not. I also would not. I've heard horror stories about Mexico procedures as well as the gastric sleeve in general.

    I had mine done in the states. An acquaintance of mine had hers done in Mexico and experienced complications.

    I do have a friend who had it done in Mexico and has not had any complications from the surgery itself. Side effects, yes but not any complications. She used Dr. Green and the Oasis Hospital in Tijuana. I would love Cancun more so for the shorter flight but Cancun is not the mecca that Tijuana is for this surgery.
