Sleeve Gastrectomy After Lap Band Can Help You
Obesity can lead to serious health-related problems, and for people who are considered to be severely obese, it is vital that they reach a healthy weight. Comorbid diseases like diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea, and even some cancers are linked to being seriously overweight. Unfortunately, reaching a healthy weight isn’t simple for people, like you, who are severely obese. You may find that you can lose a few pounds with diet and exercise, but it’s not enough. Or, maybe you do reach your goal, but you quickly end up regaining all of the weight you lost. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., started Dr. Feiz & Associates to help. He and his team are leading experts in bariatric procedures like the sleeve gastrectomy Los Angeles residents rave about.
Dr. Feiz is also a leader when it comes to providing sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band. Many patients have very good luck with a Lap Band but, in some cases, the band becomes too loose, too tight, or starts to degrade. They can experience pain, acid reflux, or rebound weight gain after some successful weight loss. In other cases, the results simply aren’t what patients and doctors were hoping for. That’s why Dr. Feiz specializes in this procedure for qualifying patients. He removes the band, then, with the sleeve gastrectomy procedure, he creates a permanently smaller stomach which produces a number of powerful benefits that makes permanent weight loss a great deal easier.
The band to sleeve revision is a revolutionary procedure that has helped many people continue their weight loss journeys, so contact Dr. Feiz & Associates today to set up your appointment.
