Americans are obsessed with weight loss. Dieting and exercise fads come and go several times a year, making it seem like weight loss is so easy it can happen overnight. While this isn’t true, many people can shed pounds by making healthy eating and exercise part of their daily routine. Unfortunately, for people who are severely obese, just making these changes isn’t enough. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., founded Dr. Feiz & Associates to help patients who have a BMI of 40 or higher, or a BMI of 35 with two documented comorbidities, lose weight with the help of weight loss surgery. Whether you are interested in Lap Band or sleeve gastrectomy in Los Angeles, or have questions about other weight loss procedures, Dr. Feiz is the best choice.
During the very first visit, Dr. Feiz makes sure his new patient understands their weight loss surgery options so that they can make the best choice for their long-term health. Many new patients come in expected either a Lap Band or a gastric sleeve procedure, since these are the two most popular options right now. While Dr. Feiz knows that these procedures work well for many people, they are not always the perfect choice, depending on body type and the person’s history with weight loss. By educating his patients, Dr. Feiz empowers them to take control of their health for the long term, including when they want to make a change like sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band.
Dr. Feiz is also one of the few weight loss surgeons to specialize in band to sleeve revision. Contact Dr. Feiz & Associates to set up your first appointment today.
