Weight Loss Surgery and Cholesterol
High cholesterol can be an extremely dangerous ailment for a person to have. It can lead to clogged arteries, which in turn, can negatively impact one’s circulatory system. This, of course, is a very problematic condition, and should be dealt with as promptly as possible. Unfortunately, this condition frequently arises from severe obesity, which can be an incredible obstacle to overcome. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., and his team at Dr. Feiz and Associates knows that obesity can cause high cholesterol, and he knows that it can be an extraordinarily difficult challenge to meet, and that’s why he offers numerous weight loss surgery solutions, to help those who want to return to better physical and mental shape.
When it comes to surgeries that will decrease one’s appetite, which will in turn decrease their weight, which will in turn decrease their high cholesterol, there are many options. There are even options for those who have already had a prior Lap Band surgery, but want to try a new strategy. For example, Dr. Feiz offers a sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band surgery that can help give patients a new way of diminishing their appetite, by having surgeons remove part of their stomach. And, when it comes to the issue of Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve gastrectomy choices, patients don’t have to worry about getting lost in a sea of information that is difficult to understand. Dr. Feiz is more than happy to take his time and make sure his patients go into their procedures with confidence, and trust in their surgeon.
Whether you are interested in a band to sleeve revision or an initial bariatric procedure, Dr. Feiz is here with a solution that really works for obese people who are concerned about their cholesterol and other health risks.
