If you’re interested in looking into Dr. Michael Feiz’s work with weight loss surgery in the Beverly Hills Roxburyarea, you’re not alone. Obesity is a worldwide epidemic and, even in the image conscious Westside, an awful lot of people are dealing with serious weight problems. Moreover, obesity isn’t impressed by a zip code. People with severe obesity everywhere typically find it next to impossible to lose weight and keep the weight off over the long term.
Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. is one of the leading practitioners of bariatric surgery and has been at the forefront of the sleeve gastrectomy for years. This procedure removes a very large percentage of the stomach. Naturally, having a much smaller stomach makes overeating uncomfortable, but that’s not the whole story. The procedure appears to dramatically reduce the body’s production of a powerful hormone called ghrelin. This hunger hormone is produced in larger amounts by obese people’s bodies and, what’s worse;its production tends to go into overdrive as we lose weight. Weight loss surgery is never an “easy way out” but the combination of lowering our desire to overeat on the one hand, and making it uncomfortable to do so on the other, appears to make permanent weight loss vastly more achievable for most people.
