Making Weight Loss Accessible
If you ever hear anyone say that permanent, significant weight loss for obese people is easy, you can be certain that person knows next to nothing about the topic. Dr. Feiz and Associates has become known as the place for a sleeve gastrectomy or a lap band Los Angeles and all of Southern California trust, largely because the practice is built on a strong understanding of the obstacles facing severely obese people who want to lose weight.
Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., is one of the nation's most skilled and admired board certified bariatric surgeons. He understands that, without a weight loss procedure, most people can find losing large amounts of weight, and then keeping it off, next to impossible. The reason is that, once weight loss begins, the body typically interprets this as imminent starvation. It then goes into overdrive trying to encourage the dieter to eat as much possible, sending hormonal messages to the brain which feel almost exactly like true hunger.
The good news is that a bariatric procedure such as a lap band or sleeve gastrectomy in Lancaster, Valencia, Rancho Cucamonga, Beverly Hills, Encino, or anywhere else in Southern California from Dr. Feiz reduces not only the size of the stomach, but the appetite as a whole. The result is that patients find it vastly easier to radically alter their relationship with food and consume far less food than they did previously.
As a first rate bariatric surgeon and an expert in minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques, Dr. Feiz is capable of the most delicate work, include operations that convert band to sleeve. If you are interested in any sort of weight loss procedure, your next move should be to seek out a free seminar at one of the doctor's several Southern California offices.
