If you had bariatric surgery before but the results didn't live up to your expectations, don't consider yourself a failure. Your reason for not losing adequate may in fact be due to faulty aftercare that didn't teach you appropriate lifestyle-change methods. After all, the procedure itself isn't sufficient to get the number on the scale down. Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. can lend his skillful surgical technique as well as his compassionate coaching when performing secondary weight loss surgery, such as lap band revision surgery, which can include a secondary procedure to implant a new lap band device. Alternatively, the procedure could include removing the lap band and performing a different type of bariatric surgery.
Gastric sleeve after lap band is a commonly performed procedure by Dr. Feiz, as some patients find that the lap band didn't fully live up to their expectations. Perhaps the patient wasn't fully aware of the difference between lap band vs. gastric sleeve, or another possibility is complications arose that hindered weight loss progress. Whatever the problems that the patient experienced that made their first weight loss experience a failure, there are options to rectify the situation, and Dr. Feiz may be the answer to your quandary.
