If you’re severely obese and have already undergone a Lap Band operation to help you lose weight, but aren’t satisfied with your results, a Lap Band to sleeve gastrectomy operation may be right for you. If you’re unaware of the difference between the two operations, the Lap Band works by constricting the stomach into an “hourglass” shape, whereas the gastric sleeve removes a large portion of your stomach, giving it a “sleeve shape.”
While this procedure is highly effective, you’ll still, of course, want to go with a highly trustworthy and experienced doctor. A doctor like Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. of Dr. Feiz & Associates. Dr. Feiz is well known in his community for being a pioneer in the field of weight loss surgery, and has made it his mission to help his patients with every step of their weight loss journey, from the decision between the Lap Band vs. sleeve gastrectomy, all the way through the final stages of recovery.
Lap Band revision surgery could mean major changes for you if you were dissatisfied with the results of your original Lap Band operation. In fact, many patients who undergo band to sleeve surgery say that they are far happier than they were with their Lap Band, and even achieve a larger degree of weight loss. Ultimately, whether you want to go with the Lap Band or the gastric sleeve, you’ll want to contact Dr. Michael Feiz and his team at Dr. Feiz & Associates. They have the tools, staff, and expertise to make sure you get unrivaled medical service and treatment.
