The Benefits of Lap Band Revision Surgery

Many people who have been dealing with severe obesity have already decided to go with a weight loss surgery. For many of those who have gone with weight loss surgery, they have made a very popular choice: the Lap Band. For some of those people however, the Lap Band has not delivered all of the results they were hoping to achieve at first. If this is the case with you and your Lap Band surgery, then you’ll want to contact Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. The team at Dr. Feiz & Associates can do almost everything in the surgical weight loss arena. This means helping with everything from Lap Band revisions, to helping patients with the choice between the Lap Band vs. sleeve gastrectomy.

For those who need a Lap Band revision surgery, Dr. Feiz is ready to help them make a renewed effort at attacking obesity. The band to sleeve gastrectomy operation can help patients lose large amounts of weight by removing roughly 75 to 85 percent of the stomach, which not only reduces its size but also helps keep the appetite under control by reducing the amount of a hunger hormone called ghrelin. The result is that a patient’s appetite, and thusly his or her caloric intake, are usually hugely reduced, resulting in significant in successful, and typically permeant, weight loss.

Dr. Feiz offers free informational seminars on a regular basis. If you would like to learn more about the choices for defeating obesity that are now available, attending one of these events might be your best possible bet.
