If you’re severely overweight, there’s a chance you’ve already made the decision to have a weight loss operation. This is generally a smart move, because weight loss surgeries can be extremely effective at helping people return to a healthy and productive lifestyle. If you have made the decision to have a weight loss surgery, you’d be wise to contact Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. not only for advice on which operation to go with, but also for the surgery itself.
Dr. Feiz is a highly trained and experience board-certified surgeon, and has one of the best reputations in the Southern California area. This is because he has made it his mission to deliver as many successful surgeries to as many people as possible. This means helping patients decide between the Lap Band vs. sleeve and all of the associated facets of those two surgeries. This can be a huge boon for those who don’t have any prior knowledge of weight loss surgery techniques.
On top of the initial Lap Band or gastric sleeve operation, Dr. Feiz can also help with Lap Band revision surgery which is ideal for patients who have received a Lap Band surgery, but aren’t completely happy with their results. With a revision, patients often achieve more significant weight loss, and less overall discomfort. Band to sleeve operations are no problem for Dr. Feiz & Associates. In fact, by exchanging the Lap Band for a sleeve gastrectomy, patients often experience a larger appetite decrease due to the sleeve’s procedures documented hormonal benefits, and thusly more significant and long-lasting weight loss.
