Pedro Alfaya

Pedro Alfaya Before and After

After finally deciding to have surgery, Pedro Alfaya has lost almost half his weight and could not be happier.

“I have struggled with weight issues since I was a child and had been on the endless yo-yo diet. At a max weight of 330 pounds, I realized I needed to do something about it and I learned about Dr. Rekkas. Initially I did everything required of the program, but I got scared upon approval thinking my life would never be the same, so I dropped out of the program. After a year had passed with no changes in my life, I realized the only thing to be scared of was not changing something.

I finally had the surgery and 10 months later I could kick myself for not having done it sooner. Dr. Rekkas and the bariatric surgery team have given me a life I never knew I could have. I am happy to say that I am now able to run 2.5 miles nonstop when I wasn’t even able to walk it before. I have lost almost 50 percent of my weight and could not be happier. Thank you Dr. Rekkas and the entire team.”
