Expertise in Sleeve Gastrectomy After Lap Band
About two-thirds of American adults are overweight, obese, or severely obese. This means that numerous people across the country experience health problems associated with their weight. However, for people who are not severely obese, just carrying a few extra pounds, losing weight is a matter of making a few lifestyle changes. People who are severely obese, however, may not be able to lose enough weight to get healthy. In many cases, after some initial success, they may experience rebound weight gain when their attempts at maintaining the right kind of diet and exercise eventually fail. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., is here to help. He is one of the leading weight loss surgeons in the country, and specializes in sleeve gastrectomy Los Angeles patients just like you need.
Gastric sleeve surgery is one of the most popular forms of weight loss surgery in North America, and is increasingly popular all over the world. It is a very effective method for losing weight, especially for people who have a body mass index of 40 or greater. Although many patients choose the gastric sleeve as their only form of weight loss surgery, some people choose to undergo this procedure after choosing Lap Band first. Lap Bands can work for many people, but for some patients, the procedure fails. Fortunately, Dr. Feiz is one of the few weight loss surgeons who specializes in sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band. He can remove the Lap Band device, and then perform sleeve gastrectomy, so your stomach – and your appetite – will permanently become smaller.
