Reducing Health Risks Linked to Obesity
The more weight you gain, the higher your risk of many health issues becomes. Health concerns like heart attack, stroke, and high cholesterol can put your life in danger. Stiff joints and lack of mobility can make getting around very painful. Depression has also been linked to being overweight, which can affect all facets of your life. Not to mention the hearty hit to your self-esteem. Don’t let obesity keep you from living your life to the fullest. When you use the weight loss services of Dr. Feiz and Associates, you can change your life for the better through surgical options like gastric sleeve or band to sleeve.
There are a couple of different weight loss surgery options for patients at Dr. Feiz and Associates. Lap Band is a procedure in which a band is placed around the stomach to create an hourglass shape. It’s a popular procedure because it’s not permanent and causes a person to eat less. Plus, there is always the option for lap band revision surgery. Gastric sleeve is more drastic, with part of the stomach being removed to create a sleeve-like shape, but very effective. The decision of lap band vs. sleeve largely depends on a patient’s medical history and personal preferences.
It’s important to find a surgeon you can trust to perform your weight loss surgery.
