Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., FACS has multiple weight loss locations in the Southern California area. As an expert Lap Band surgeon, Dr. Feiz prides himself on his performance, aesthetics, and most importantly, the ability to positively impact the lives of those around him. His Comprehensive Weight Loss Centers have been helping people lose weight and keep it off for years.Though there are a variety of weight loss methods, none are as safe and simple as the Lap Band system. Lap Band Surgery is revolutionizing the way we look at obesity and weight loss.
The term Lap Band is derived from the word "laparoscopic", which is a method of surgery where small incisions are used as opposed to larger, open cuts. Dr. Feiz' Lap Band surgery consists of three lentel sized incisions around the abdomen and no cutting of the stomach. From there, the belt-like section of the Lap Band is placed around the upper stomach, forming the organ into a shape akin to an hour glass. This allows the Lap Band to control how much food is entering the stomach at any given time, and also allows for complete adjustability.
The adjustment is accomplished by adding or removing saline liquid from the belt-like section, or loop. Ultimately, the Lap Band procedure is considered a much safer alternative to traditional weight loss methods, such as Gastric Bypass. Put simply, the smaller the cut, the less stress is put on the body and vital organs. This dramatically reduces recovery time, hemorrhaging and other complications that may arise from operating on morbidly obese patients. Aesthetically speaking, many of Dr. Feiz' patients have reported little to no scarring after their surgeries and the Lap Band itself can be completely removed once a desired weight has been reached.
Additionally, Dr. Feiz' Lap Band Surgery has a short recovery period, sometimes as short as 24 hours. Although we advise against any strenuous activities after the surgery, there have been a multitude of patients who were able to continue work in just one day.
