When it comes to deciding on which weight loss doctor to go with, many factors come into play. You want somebody experienced. You want somebody caring. You want somebody who’s going to explain to you about all of the options available, especially when it comes to the choice between the Lap Band vs. sleeve gastrectomy. Luckily, if you’re a member of the Greater Los Angeles community and you feel that it’s time to take control of your weight and your health with a weight loss procedure, there’s Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. of Dr. Feiz & Associates.
The team at Dr. Feiz & Associates has many years of experience with Lap Band revision surgery and can help patients who have been dissatisfied with their original surgery to obtain better results. This usually works by removing the band put in place by the original Lap Band operation, and replacing it with a gastric sleeve procedure. While the gastric sleeve aims to prevent weight gain like the Lap Band, it goes about achieving its goal in a very different way. In fact, the gastric sleeve operation works by removing a large portion of the stomach, thus resulting in a high likelihood of decreased appetite and caloric intake largely due to some important hormonal benefits.
Ultimately, if you’re considering a Lap Band operation or a band to sleeve revision, you’ll want to contact the offices of Dr. Feiz & Associates to inquire about attending a free seminar. They’ll help you to understand the operations available to you, and the benefits of those operations.
