How Lap Band Revision Surgery Can Change Your Life
Many people opt to have Lap Band surgery to help in their quest to lose a significant amount of weight. The Lap Band procedure positions a band around the stomach to create an hourglass shape which makes a person feel full quicker when eating. Usually the procedure is completely safe, leading to life-saving weight loss. However, it’s not always the case. Sometimes patients don’t always see the sort of results they want to reach their ideal weight. Dr. Michael Feiz is an expert at working with people who have issues with their Lap Band, by performing Lap Band revision surgery.
One problem that sometimes occurs with the Lap Band is slipping. The band might slip a bit in the stomach, which can cause pain, nausea, and infection. In this case, emergency surgery might be required. If the Lap Band starts to erode band to sleeve surgery with Dr. Feiz might be the best option, since the band will no longer be effective. If you have a lap band and have experienced pain or nausea, you should consult a doctor right away.
Lap Band vs. sleeve is up to personal preference and should always be discussed with your surgeon before making an informed decision. If you’ve had issues with your Lap Band or want to have first time weight loss surgery, call the offices of Dr. Feiz today for a free consultation. The revision surgery can save your life and help you lose the weight you need to be the healthier you.
