Before & After Antonio

bariatric surgery before and after from Gastric Sleeve Surgery in Los Angeles

The surgery was probably the best decision I have ever made!
After the surgery, I got so much better. I got off my blood pressure medication, my cholesterol is down. Everything is just better. I haven’t had any problems medically since the surgery at all.
I went down from a 50 waist down to a 34 waist in 5 months! Thank god for the gastric sleeve surgery. It was a really great success!
I feel that God has blessed me with this life. I have a beautiful wife, who I work with. We have five yorkie dogs and puppies. And I’m feeling more energized and healthy every day.

When I was in my 30s, I worked at a gym and was committed to my fitness, working out almost every day. When I turned 40, I let it all go, started eating whatever I wanted, and rarely exercising. I gained about 100 pounds during that decade and weighed 268. I had been considering weight loss surgery for a couple years and started going through the beginning stages to check if I was a good candidate for the surgery: doctors appointments, met with a psychiatrist, blood work. In the midst of all of these appointments, I got a new job at Tesla and my insurance changed to United Healthcare. I asked them to refer me to a good surgeon in the area who I could meet with, which is how I found Dr. Davtyan. I met with him at the end of September and during the consultation, my insurance called me with a surgery date in 2 weeks! I started to get a bit nervous, but stayed optimistic by imagining myself looking fit at the end of all of this. On October 8th, 2019, I got the gastric sleeve surgery. I was sore for a couple weeks, but after I was fine.
