With the gastric bypass there is a risk of patient mal-nutrition, while with a gastric band procedure there is need for periodic adjustments and an implant. As a less risky alternative to a complete gastric bypass surgery, the sleeve gastrectomy in Huntington Beach is an effective way for those with a BMI of 35 or higher to shed their excess weight, often achieving better results than the alternative gastric band. Dr. Feiz has been performing sleeve gastrectomies, Lap-Band and other bariatric procedures for almost 5 years, giving way to a consistent track record of successful results for his patients. In conjunction with the procedure itself, Dr. Feiz acts as a consultant for each of his patients, serving as psychological support to ultimately separate patients with their emotional dependency on food. Beneficial diet and exercise recommendations are also employed in order to best ensure long term success of the surgery.
After undergoing a sleeve gastrectomy in Huntington Beach with Dr. Feiz, patients aren’t able to ingest as much food because their stomachs are surgically made smaller. Besides not being able to eat as much, patients also don’t feel hungry as often and get satiated from food more quickly due to a drop in the hormone levels associated with hunger. As a result, weight loss is rapid and last for months, often years after the procedure was performed. After significant weight loss occurs, patients are thrilled at how they look and how they feel.
