Helping Patients Lose Excess Body Weight and Enjoy a Healthy Life

What is a Sleeve Gastrectomy?

Sleeve gastrectomy allows the patient to intake small amounts of food and permanently lose excessive weight. The weight loss surgeons in Los Angeles perform this procedure laparoscopically (a less invasive method). More so, this procedure requires miniature cameras. The surgeons remove around 75-85% of the stomach of the patient, so that it resembles a sleeve.

This treatment lets the patient shed almost 60% of their weight. Plus, those who work even harder to improve their dietary and behavioral habits achieve even better results.

Unlike gastric band surgery, no device from outside is implanted inside the patient's body. In this process, there occurs no reconfiguration of the patient's digestive system, as was done previously in radical gastric bypass operations. After complete recovery, the patient can eat whatever he/she likes.

However, as this process is irreversible, one must make up his mind completely before undergoing the procedure.

More so, sleeve gastrectomy is responsible for the reduced production of the hunger hormone ghrelin. Lesser production of this hormone lets a person crave a lesser amount of food.

Weight Loss Surgery Options in Los Angeles

Gastric sleeve gastrectomy surgery is one of the best available options for weight loss. People feel hungry due to the hunger hormone named “ghrelin.” And in obese people, the production of this hormone is even more. Whenever someone tries to lose weight, ghrelin formation increases as their body is tuned to maintain its original weight. As a result, they feel much more hungry!  During the sleeve gastrectomy procedure in LA, bariatric surgery doctors remove the part of the stomach responsible for ghrelin production. As a result, you start to feel less hungry, consume little food, and ultimately lose weight. However, please keep in mind that you’d still have to eat healthy after the surgery to maintain a fit lifestyle.If you want to lose weight and attain a fit and healthy body, get in touch with Dr. Michael Feiz in Los Angeles today!
