Getting a sleeve gastrectomy in Valencia is possible through trusted surgeon, Dr. Feiz. With nearly 5 years of experience performing bariatric procedures, Dr. Feiz has been able to consistently supply his patients with successful sleeve gastrectomy and Lap-Band surgeries. The sleeve gastrectomy in Valencia is performed laparoscopically, in which 3-4 tiny incisions are made in the abdomen so that narrow surgical instruments, including a small camera, can be inserted and manipulated in order to carry out the procedure. With this laparoscopic method, there are drastic improvements with regards to patient recovery time, scarring, risk of infection, pain, and time in the operating room.
In a sleeve gastrectomy procedure, the stomach is made smaller by having a large portion removed. With a smaller stomach capacity, patients are physically unable to ingest as much food and calories, which causes rapid weight loss. There is also an associated drop in hunger inducing hormones, allowing for longer satiety after meals. The sleeve gastrectomy in Valencia is irreversible, so patients must make permanent changes with regards to their diet in order to ensure proper health and long term benefits from the procedure.
Eligible candidates for this procedure typically have a BMI of 35 or more and haven’t had previous bariatric surgery. The sleeve gastrectomy is a viable and highly effective alternative to the gastric bypass, which carries the risk of malnutrition, and the gastric band, which requires an adjustable implant. Call today to schedule an in-depth consultation regarding the life-altering sleeve gastrectomy in Valencia with Dr. Feiz. Results brought about from a sleeve gastrectomy are comparable and often superior to a gastric band procedure.
