Losing a significant amount of weight can be a momentous change in somebody’s life. Of course, it has innumerable health benefits. It can also help a person to feel as if they have been reinvigorated, ready to take on new challenges and grow as a person. If you are overweight, and you are ready to make a big change in your life using a method like Lap Band surgery, then you should contact Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., FACS to help you with your procedure.
Dr. Feiz helps his patients with every aspect of weight loss surgery, including help with decision regarding the Lap Band vs. sleeve gastrectomy procedures. For those who don’t know the details of either surgery, Dr. Feiz & Associates will delve into each option with patients, so that they can understand the procedures, and make sure they’re getting the surgery that best suits their needs and expectations.
Lap Band revision surgery is also available from Dr. Feiz. For those who haven’t heard of it, Lap Band revision surgery is the way by which surgeons replace the original procedure with a new one. These revision surgeries often lead to faster weight while also dealing with any minor complications that might have arisen.
More specifically, Dr. Feiz offers band to sleeve gastrectomy surgery, which exchanges a Lap Band for a gastric sleeve. The gastric sleeve can often times provide improved results because the procedure removes a large portion of the stomach, leaving a “sleeve.” This, of course, usually results in a largely diminished appetite, and thusly significant weight loss.
