One established operation for significant weight loss is the Lap Band operation. Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., is a leader in the field when it comes to this operation, and he’s made it his goal to deliver top-tier results to as many patients as possible with all types of weight loss procedures.
For those who don’t know, the Lap Band procedure works by making a single, very small incision (less than the diameter of a dime) through which the surgeon, Dr. Feiz, inserts his instruments. Once inside the patient, Dr. Feiz places a band around the stomach, which constricts its shape, making it take on the form of an hour glass. This constriction usually helps to diminish appetite, lower caloric intake, and thusly deliver significant weight loss. And, for those who are debating the choice regarding the Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve operations, Dr. Feiz can help. He knows about almost every single nuance of both procedures, and can help make sure patients make an informed decision so they go down the right path.
Band to sleeve revision operations are also available from Dr. Feiz & Associates, and are ideal for folks who are looking to try a totally new course of action in terms of losing a significant amount of weight. The gastric sleeve can be an excellent option for those who have tried the Lap Band, but aren’t fully satisfied with the results, or are experienced some level of discomfort.
The bottom line: If you’re looking for almost any type of popular weight loss surgery, you’d be wise to contact Dr. Feiz & Associates. They can help with almost every procedure, including a sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band operation, and they’ve made it their goal to deliver top-tier quality, and consistent results.
