The weight loss surgical specialists in our California office are some of the best in the country. Whether you need to lose 80 pounds or 300, your journey begins by scheduling a consultation with a weight loss California surgeon with bariatric qualifications, like Dr. Feiz. A highly trained surgeon, Dr. Feiz will explain all of the risks and benefits to you in our Southern California offices. It’s important that you have a customized treatment plan designed to meet your needs. Not everyone is a candidate for weight loss surgery, so if you have other options, you may want to consider them first. Only consult with a weight loss California surgeon if you have tried to lose weight through other methods without experiencing any results.
You need to be very careful with whom you choose to perform your surgery. Since there are risks involved, you must choose a physician with a lot of experience and knowledge in lap band, laparoscopic and gastric bypass surgeries. Dr. Feiz has performed more lap band surgeries than most surgeons in the United States. Not every weight loss California surgeon has significant experience, so always do your research first. Especially if you are considering lap band surgery, you need to choose wisely, since not every doctor has a whole lot of experience with lap bands. This type of surgery could potentially be dangerous if not done correctly. Even if you do qualify, though, you still shouldn’t view surgery as a permanent solution. It will certainly help, but you should still make improvements to your diet and lifestyle habits. Luckily, our offices are staffed with highly trained and qualified psychologists and nutritionists who help keep our California patients on the track to weight loss success long after their operation.
