A Brief Overview of Gastric Sleeve Surgery from Los Angeles Bariatric Surgeon Dr. Feiz
As the premier Sleeve Gastrectomy surgeon in Los Angeles, Dr. Michael Feiz is well aware that part of the reason that many obese individuals have difficulty losing weight is because of their constant struggles with hunger. Fortunately, there is an answer for individuals struggling with morbid obesity who have been unable to lose weight through traditional means of diet and exercise. In fact, many obese people struggled for years to lose weight for a variety of reasons, including poor lifestyle habits that keep them from being able to lose weight successfully, and what’s more, keep it off.
What makes Gastric Sleeve Surgery such a good option for those who are considering bariatric surgery is the fact that hunger is significantly reduced after the procedure, due to the removal of the segment of the stomach called the fundus which produces the “hunger hormone,” called ghrelin. When patients are able to control their hunger and change their lifestyle habits, they are able to successfully lose weight. Dr. Feiz knows, however, that it takes more than just the surgery to get patients to lose weight, which is why he provides thorough aftercare to help his patients adapt to their new diet and exercise regimen.
Dr. Feiz is able to counsel his patients so they can discover which form of bariatric surgery would be best for them. Other options include the best lap band surgery in Los Angeles, as evidenced by the results viewable in Dr. Feiz’ before and after patient gallery on the website. What’s more, Dr. Feiz is able to perform lap band or gastric sleeve surgery by utilizing the STARR treatment method, which enables him to complete the surgery using only a single incision to access the stomach. Every patient at Dr. Feiz & Associates gets the best treatment possible, to ensure they lose weight and keep it off. Call us today for a free consultation!
