Led by the esteemed Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., FACS, the team at Dr. Feiz & Associates has made a name for themselves as the premier location in Southern California for individuals looking to undergo the lap band procedure. Dr. Feiz has worked to become a leader in lap band surgery because it gives patients maximum weight loss results with minimal scarring and interference in daily life.
In the surgery, Dr. Feiz places the Band, a belt-like section of plastic, around the upper stomach to create a calibrated narrowing of the stomach. This allows it to fill up with only a small amount of food and empty slowly like an hourglass. Since it is removable and adjustable, it is a convenient, less invasive alternative to other weight loss surgeries.
Like almost any medical procedure, the lapband cost is always a factor worth considering. Fortunately, the cost of surgery is often covered by medical insurance because of the procedure’s proven benefits in helping patients fight the damaging effects of obesity. Because of this, the cost of surgery is often less than what prospective patients originally expect.
To see the incredible effects of the bariatric surgery for yourself, check out lap band before and after photos on the esteemed doctor’s website.
