If you or a loved one is dealing with severe obesity, there may be a high risk for heart disease. And, needless to say, this can be extremely dangerous for your health. This is because heart disease can narrow or even completely block certain blood vessels, leading to extremely serious health hazards, most obviously life-threatening heart attacks.
Luckily, those who want to lose a significant amount of weight and cut down on the risk of contracting heart disease can look into a weight loss procedure, like those available from Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., and his team at Dr. Feiz & Associates. In fact, the team at Dr. Feiz & Associates is one of the most experienced and dedicated in their field, and will help you to understand all aspects of your weight loss journey. Everything from the decision between the Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve operations will be discussed in detail, to make sure that you get the best possible treatment for your specific weight loss and health goals.
The band to sleeve revision operation is also available from Dr. Feiz, and is an exceptionally effective method for delivering results for those who didn’t feel that their first banding operation helped them to lose enough weight. This is because the sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band revision operation replaces the Lap Band with a gastric sleeve procedure, which removes a large portion of the stomach. This, in turn, almost always greatly decreases one’s appetite. The result is that losing weight and keeping it off becomes vastly less difficult…and the result of that will very likely do your heart good.
