Is Surgery My Best Weight Loss Option?
There are many different ways to attempt to lose weight, each with varying degrees of success. When it comes to dieting, there are thousands of fad diets that fade in and out of popularity but don’t always show results. New creative exercises, from yoga to Zumba, often pop up, but can be difficult to join in if your weight has caused back, knee, and joint pain. While diet and exercise are good places to start to lose weight, sometimes the best option is actually surgery. Dr. Michael Feiz has dedicated his career to creating the safest, most comfortable weight loss surgery environment in the business.
If your weight has created health problems like hypertension, type 2 diabetes, or sleep apnea, diet and exercise alone might not be enough to get to a healthy weight. Bariatric surgery, including Lap Band, gastric sleeve, and Lap Band revision surgery, are good options for those who haven’t had the best results from traditional weight loss methods but need to lose weight to be healthy. Dr. Feiz is an expert at Lap Band vs. sleeve surgical discussions, helping patients of varying genders, ages, and weights understand their options, including band to sleeve surgery.
While some patients see weight loss surgery as a last resort, it can be a lifeline for people suffering from obesity. The serious health risks associated with obesity can be life threatening, so it’s important to start losing weight as soon as possible.
