The moving weight loss surgery success stories of formerly severely obese people from all walks of life tell us a great deal about just how procedures work. When working with an obese patient, family doctors will typically instruct them to eat significantly less food and to exercise more. While this is excellent advice in theory, the reality is that most patients find it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to greatly reduce their food intake over the long term. This is because the human body is largely designed to keep us at our present weight, whatever that is. One key aspect of this reality is that severely obese individuals who begin to lose weight are increasingly plagued by hormonally driven feelings that may feel like hunger, ever after they know for a fact that they have consumed more than enough food. Thus, resisting the urge to overeat can become an overwhelming task.
Weight loss surgeries, such as the sleeve gastrectomy, have the ability to attack this problem in two different ways. First, they make the stomach a great deal smaller and overeating becomes very uncomfortable. Secondly, they can actually prevent the nagging pangs of appetite that ruin so many long-term efforts at defeating obesity by actually reducing the body’s production of hunger-inducing hormones. Dr. Feiz has been a leader in promoting awareness of the hormonal benefits of weight loss surgery in Marina del Rey, and he is here to tailor a customized plan of action that will ensure a patient takes the most effective possible path towards winning their battle against obesity.
