Lap Band to Sleeve Revision Surgery Might be Right for You
At Dr. Feiz and Associates, weight loss surgery patients find exceptional care from Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. and his impeccable surgical team. Dr. Feiz is an active member of the American Society for Bariatric Surgeons and the American College of Surgeons, and has even received special training from Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Bariatric and Minimally Invasive Surgery. That’s why, after patients of a lesser surgeon undergo failed bariatric treatment, they often turn to Dr. Feiz for Lap Band to sleeve revision surgery and other revision treatments.
When considering Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve the Lap Band has garnered a great deal of popularity thanks to its comparatively non-invasive nature and its ability to be removed. However, in some cases, Lap Band will lead to unforeseen complications or less-than-satisfying weight loss. When this occurs, sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band from Dr. Feiz can renew a patient’s hope for a higher quality of life.
In this revision surgery, Dr. Feiz will both remove the Lap Band and remove about 85% of the patient’s stomach so that they can enjoy fast, sustainable and safe weight loss, without the discomfort or loss of energy that is common during dieting. Due to the rise in prevalence of obesity, weight loss surgery is increasingly common. By choosing to undergo bariatric treatment from Dr. Feiz, though, you can lose weight safely and enjoy a full life.
