Don’t Give up on Health; Try Lap Band Revision with Dr. Feiz
There’s nothing as disappointing as taking the time to research the types of weight loss surgery, going through the surgery, and then enduring the sometimes challenging recovery period, only to find that the surgery that has failed to produce the desired results. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. is a bariatric surgeon in Beverly Hills who has helped many formerly disappointed bariatric patients. Most often, these people experienced an insignificant weight loss or undue negative side effects from their procedure.
Dr. Feiz’s revision surgery of choice is the sleeve gastrectomy. While this isn’t always the absolute best option for every weight loss revision surgery – that determination has to be made on a case-by-case basis – the gastric sleeve is often a perfect fit for those who didn’t respond effectively to the lap band. One key component that makes the gastric sleeve so successful is that it drastically reduces the production of the stomach hormone ghrelin, which is responsible for the sensation of hunger that overweight people often experience even after they’ve eaten more than enough food.
Of course, patients always hope to get things right the first time, and Dr. Feiz has performed many very successful lap band procedures. One reason he is most often able to avoid any need for lap band revision surgery is because of his detailed follow-up with patients and his stellar support staff, who are all determined to do their to ensure patients’ post-surgical period goes as planned. With frequent check-ins with the doctor himself, the assistance of a dietician, and other steps, all of Dr. Feiz’s patients benefit from the support they need to make all of the appropriate lifestyle changes.
