While some may assume that people undergo weight loss surgery in Pasadena purely for cosmetic reasons, the truth is that obesity and its many co-morbidities (heart disease, high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure) can take 20 years off an affected individual’s life. This is why more and more people are seeking weight loss procedures, such as the lap-band and sleeve gastrectomy, to help them lose the risky excess weight that they haven’t been able to lose through traditional dieting and exercising. With Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., FACS, patients seeking weight loss in Pasadena are able to lose weight in a way that is quick, effective, and safe.
There are three main options for weight loss in Pasadena, and each one presents different benefits based on a person’s health, age, and BMI. During the initial free consultation, Dr. Feiz gives each patient an individualized evaluation in which the different surgery options can be weighed to ensure a safe, successful procedure. Most patients find that the Lap-Band procedure is the best option for weight loss in Pasadena due to its minimally invasive nature and adjustability.
