Get a Second Chance at Success with Revision Weight Loss Surgery
Not every patient gets the aftercare they need, or they experience complications from their first bariatric surgery, whether they had gastric bypass or the lap band. Revision surgery is possible, however, and can have a great impact on your life when you finally lose the excess weight for good, along with your obesity-related illnesses. Many patients opt to have their lap band removed so they can have it converted to a gastric sleeve. After lap band surgery, you may experience problems keeping the weight you lose off, and it can be a hassle to have to come in for routine adjustment appointments. With Dr. Michael Feiz, however, you can put these problems in the past.
If you have questions about the pros and cons of lap band vs. gastric sleeve, Dr. Feiz can educate you about these, as well, starting with your initial consultation in his weight loss centers in Inglewood, Bakersfield and everywhere in the Greater Los Angeles area and beyond. One of the main reasons people choose gastric sleeve, also known as sleeve gastrectomy, is because the procedure helps drastically reduce the production of ghrelin, sometimes called the "hunger hormone." Once you are far less hungry, you no longer desire food as much as you once did, and your stomach capacity will be smaller, as well.
For further information, you can sign up for a free seminar in your area on Dr. Feiz' user-friendly website, or simply call his offices to set up your first consultation and get your health back once and for all.
