High cholesterol can be a crucial issue for severely obese individuals because it can cause their arteries to harden, or become clogged with scar tissue. This is, of course, extremely dangerous, because it can lead to poor blood circulation, along with a host of other very serious health issues. Dr. Feiz and his team at Dr. Feiz and Associates knows about these health issues, and they’ve set out to help as many people with weight-related health issues as possible by performing weight loss surgeries for those in need.
If there is a patient who is unsatisfied with his or her previous Lap Band operation performed by another surgeon, Dr. Feiz offers a sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band operation that can help a patient transition from one type of weight solution to the other. This is important because sometimes patients are satisfied with the results of their original Lap Band surgery, or are even generally uncomfortable, and need a different weight loss solution.
Ultimately, for any decision within the realm of weight loss surgeries, Dr. Feiz and his team can help guide people to the best option. He can explain the nuances of the decision between the Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve and will make sure that patients receive the right treatment for their individual needs and goals. He’s also happy to guide people on the journey as they keep their weight down, with the option for a band to sleeve revision that can help people to make sure that they don’t only lose excess body weight, but keep it off for good.
