Wilfred Aguila, M.D., FACS
Wilfred Aguila, M.D. is a board certified surgeon and Bariatric physician who has dedicated his life to helping people lose weight and change their lives. A graduate of the University of Miami School of Medicine, Dr. Aguila opened the successful Weight Success Centers, LLC with offices in Tampa, Brandon, and the Villages to help patients navigate the often confusing diet maze and achieve long lasting weight loss. Weight Success Centers have helped hundreds of patients lose weight and achieve better health thru personalized weight loss plans and bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
After battling his own problems with binge eating, Dr. Aguila changed his life and lost 70 pounds, which he has kept off for over 17 years. He has applied the lessons he learned during his struggle with his own weight to help others win back their lives. “It is one thing to ask people to change their lives because you say so, but it is entirely different to help people change their lives because you have done it yourself,” says Dr. Aguila, who is affectionately known as “Dr. A” among his peers, patients, and readers of his books.
As a nationally recognized weight-loss expert, Dr. A has contributed to national publications such as Shape, Woman’s Day, and Women’s Health Magazine.
