Plenty of adults in the US obsess about losing weight, and it’s no wonder – with two-thirds of American adults considered overweight or obese, it makes sense that diet fads and weight loss advertising would be everywhere. However, following a cycle of these fads can do harm to your body and your mind, especially when you fail to keep the weight off. This is especially true for people who qualify as severely obese – these people are typically 100 pounds or more overweight, and have a very difficult time losing weight and keeping it off. That’s why Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., founded Dr. Feiz & Associates in a convenient location in Beverly Hills, California. He wanted to make sure that world-class weight loss surgery with a compassionate team was easily available to qualifying patients. Dr. Feiz has an in-depth understanding of weight loss procedures like Lap Band and sleeve gastrectomy Los Angeles patients need.
Although the two most popular types of weight loss procedures right now are gastric sleeve and Lap Band surgeries, Dr. Feiz will discuss all the best options with his patients during their very first meeting. It is deeply important to Dr. Feiz that his patients are well educated about their options, because this empowers them to get involved in their health for the long-term. He is also one of the few bariatric surgeons in the country who is able to perform band to sleeve revision procedures, because he knows that continuing to lose weight is very important to all his patients.
Whether you need a sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band, or want to discuss all your options for weight loss surgery, Dr. Feiz is here for you.
