Deciding whether or not to undertake weight loss surgery is no easy choice. Chances are you’ve attempted to lose weight the traditional ways, through diet and exercise, but found less than satisfying results. There are a lot of factors that go into making the right surgical decision. But at Dr. Feiz and Associates, we work hard with our patients to help them get amazing weight loss results through the right procedure.
There are two major bariatric surgeries to consider. The debate between Lap Band vs. gastric sleeve should be discussed with a qualified surgeon like Dr. Michael Feiz. Lap Band surgery can be reversible, consisting of placing a band around the stomach. Many people opt for Lap Band because it seems less drastic than the other option, but sometimes it doesn’t quite suppress the appetite the way you might hope. In that case, sleeve gastrectomy after Lap Band is a very good option. Gastric sleeve surgery removes a portion of the stomach so that you don’t eat as much.
