Focus On Your Healthy Weight
It’s no secret that Los Angeles is a somewhat image-obsessed city, so many Angelinos cycle through diets and exercise routines to stay in perfect shape. Unfortunately, for many severely obese people, losing weight isn’t a matter of losing 10 or 20 pounds to achieve perfection; they often must lose as much as 100 pounds, sometimes more, just to avoid serious, life-limiting or threatening health issues. That means they have to lose weight relatively quickly, but they know that diet and exercise alone have not been enough to keep the weight off in the past. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. and his bariatric surgery team at Dr. Feiz and Associates are here to help obese patients decide which weight loss surgery is best for them, especially such matters as understanding the differences between Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve, so their patients can focus on becoming healthy again.
Dr. Feiz is one of the most accomplished bariatric surgeons in the field today. Along with his compassionate team at Dr. Feiz and Associates, he offers free seminars on a regular basis so that his patients can learn more about the care Dr. Feiz offers. He is particularly skilled in the Lap Band and sleeve gastrectomy (or gastric sleeve) procedures, which are currently the two most popular types of weight loss surgery. During an initial consultation with patients, he will help them decide which weight loss procedure would serve the individual patient’s body best. He and his team also specialize in sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band, which converts the less permanent Lap Band into a permanently smaller stomach through band removal followed by gastric sleeve surgery. This is sometimes needed because, while many patients see great results from the Lap Band, a few find that they are not achieving their goals or dealing with certain issues.
