One of the most transformative experiences a person can go through is losing a large amount of weight. This is the case because large excesses of fat on the body can cause exhaustion, discomfort and sluggishness, and even more intense issues like depression, sleep apnea, and type 2 diabetes. Luckily, there are treatments available to help people who need to lose large amounts of weight relatively quickly, and healthfully. By far the most effective of these options is weight loss surgery, like that available from Dr. Feiz and Associates. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., offers extremely knowledgeable guidance when it comes to decisions like choosing between the Lap Band vs. sleeve surgeries, as well as some of the best personalized care in Southern California.
Another way for people to lose weight and feel good about themselves, is by transitioning from a band to sleeve weight loss solution. Sometimes patients aren’t entirely happy with the results of their Lap Band surgery, and they want to explore the gastric sleeve operation, which can provide a different, and sometimes more optimal way for patients to lose weight while still remaining comfortable.
Dr. Feiz and Associates also offer Lap Band revision surgery for those who feel as if the benefits they are seeing from their original Lap Band surgery are lackluster, or even just leveling off to the point of being not as effective as they desire. Ultimately, regardless of the weight loss solution a patient chooses, chances are Dr. Feiz and his highly experienced and specialized team can help people lose large amounts of weight, and gain confidence, health, and comfort.
