Lap Band to Gastric Sleeve Conversion with Dr. Feiz Often Best Option
Michael Feiz, MD, FACS is a bariatric surgeon in Beverly Hills who is as equally known for his surgical expertise as his bedside manner. Dr. Feiz has performed hundreds of weight loss procedures, including many gastric sleeve operations, which have brought healthier lives and a brand new outlook to his patients. One common reason Dr. Feiz performs the gastric sleeve is because a patient hasn't experienced adequate weight loss from a lap band procedure.
When receiving a lap band, patients are promised a life-changing weight loss solution. However, this often isn't the case. This can be for many reasons: lack of restrictive diet, inadequate guidance from your surgeon, or simply because the lap band has little effect on you. Dr. Feiz recommends coming to his office for a free consultation to discuss inadequate weight loss from a lap band. He'll field any questions you may have, explain what is normal and what isn't after a lap band, and may recommend a lap band to sleeve conversion in certain cases.
A gastric sleeve permanently reduces the size of your stomach. Sometimes called revision surgery, gastric sleeve after lap band corrects many of the problems that lap band patients face. Whether your weight has plateaued way above your goal weight or you simply haven't seen a drastic effect from the lap band, Dr. Feiz can help you achieve your weight loss goals through a conversion.Call today to schedule an absolutely free consultation with Dr. Feiz and his associates.
