Bariatric Surgeon Dr. Feiz Helps Patients during National Healthy Weight Awareness Month

January is the most common time of the year for people to lament the number they see on the scale; and Dr. Feiz educates patients on why being obese is a health hazard

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- While many Americans make New Year's resolutions focused on self-improvement, those who are overweight or obese likely prioritize getting down to a healthy weight. However, these resolutions often focus too much on the aesthetic side of being slimmer instead of the health aspect, leading millions of people to spend an exorbitant amount of money on unproven diet or weight loss products, only to be left disappointed and heavier than they were to start. Often, when board-certified bariatric surgeon Dr. Michael Feiz educates his patients about bariatric surgeries like the sleeve gastrectomy in Rancho Cucamonga, Beverly Hills, or any of his other offices, he emphasizes that maintaining healthy weight isn't just to look good, but to be healthier. In fact, Dr. Feiz always emphasizes health as the ultimate goal of bariatric surgery, whether weighing the options of gastric sleeve vs. lap band surgery, or other routes to health.  

Excessive body weight can tax every bodily system, and Dr. Feiz helps patients achieve a healthy weight through surgical means, most commonly the lap band and sleeve gastrectomy. Once an obese person loses significant weight, they experience better mobility, they sleep more deeply, and are able to accomplish more once they look and feel better. Most importantly, that person's relationship with food completely changes for the better, helping them maintain a healthy weight for good as they establish a new lifestyle.

The obesity surgery itself is just one tool Dr. Feiz utilizes to help his patients achieve a healthy weight, though, as he is incredibly committed to aftercare and counseling; which all but guarantees that every patient adapts properly to their new lifestyle and learns to eat healthily. Prospective patients are invited to free educational seminars throughout Los Angeles, where they are able to learn more about various bariatric procedures, eligibility criteria, insurance coverage information, as well as Dr. Feiz' personalized approach to patient care.

Dr. Feiz recognizes obesity as a disease, as it was formally identified by the American Medical Association (AMA) in June, 2013. Obesity is a serious problem that can potentially shorten life, particularly because it can lead to heart disease, obstructive sleep apnea, high blood pressure, osteoarthritis, type 2 diabetes, asthma, depression, infertility, and many other health problems. The more overweight a person becomes, the more real the risks are for premature death. The patients Dr. Feiz sees are primarily in the morbidly obese category, meaning they are at least 100 pounds overweight, reflected by a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher. As seen in Dr. Feiz' online before and after photo gallery, he is truly an expert in guiding his morbidly obese patients into a healthy BMI range.

Dr. Feiz & Associates is the leading weight loss surgery center in Beverly Hills. With training in the advanced field of laparoscopic surgery, Dr. Feiz has a reputation for employing the highest standards of safety when practicing bariatric medicine. Prospective patients interested in learning about gastric sleeve, gastric bypass or lap band surgery are encouraged to attend a FREE informational seminar at various locations throughout Southern California, as indicated on his website, at www.drfeiz.com.
