If you’ve been struggling with obesity for a long time, chances are you’ve considered weight loss surgery. As Dr. Michael Feiz understands, it can be a tough decision to make. Strict diet and daily exercise may be good methods of weight loss, but it can be tremendously difficult for somebody with a whole lifetime of bad habits to combat. If you have a BMI of 35 or have a weight related health issue, such as heart disease or diabetes, bariatric surgery might be the procedure you need to change your health for the better.
Among the health risks of obesity are stroke, high cholesterol, and sleep apnea. It has also been linked to depression, which can a negatively affect every aspect of your life, from your personal relationships to your job. With weight loss surgeries like Lap Band, gastric sleeve, and band to sleeve revision, you may find better results than you ever did with diet and exercise. With bariatric surgery, a person is likely to feel full faster, leading to eating less. In the discussion of Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve, many patients of Dr. Feiz have found that gastric sleeve is better at suppressing the appetite, but results will vary.
