Obesity is a Rut; Escape It with Lap Band or Gastric Sleeve Surgery in Beverly Hills

Dr. Michael Feiz has helped countless patients abandon the destructive but familiar habits of the past

LOS ANGELES, April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Unfortunately, we sometimes grow used to the things we would most like to change in our lives. In regards to permanent weight loss, obtaining a lap band or gastric sleeve surgery in Beverly Hills with noted surgeon Michael Feiz, MD, FACS can help a patient abandon old and detrimental habits. For every glowing weight loss surgery testimonial on Dr. Feiz's website, a patient had to be willing to say goodbye not only to obesity, but also a number of bad habits that nevertheless once brought them fleeting comfort. Fortunately, along with a level of surgical skill and knowledge that has made him a master of even complex procedures like the lap band to sleeve revision, Dr. Feiz is committed to helping patients make the adjustments they need to say goodbye to destructive practices and embrace a new and better life.

For many, surgery from Dr. Feiz is an essential part of the of the weight loss process. After all, the seemingly unending pangs of hunger that seem to get worse following weight loss can ruin even the most stringent dieter's commitment. The insurmountable becomes achievable, however, following bariatric surgery with Dr. Feiz.

Weight loss surgeries have been proven to be effective in reducing appetite, making weight loss much easier. However, the procedure itself doesn't do all of the work. Patients still have to adjust to their new body, abandon their former bad habits, and learn to eat much smaller, nutritionally-richer portions than they were previously used to. Fortunately, Dr. Feiz's patients benefit from detailed medical follow-up, as well as the services of an outstanding dietitian who has devoted years of work to understanding the special food needs of bariatric patients.

Dr. Feiz's multidisciplinary approach to weight loss has been a great help to his patients in every aspect of their lives. However, many obese people tend to put off investigating how the surgery works and whether or not they are appropriate candidates for a procedure. That's why his offices host free seminars on a regular basis throughout the greater Los Angeles area, including in Beverly Hills, Rancho Cucamonga, Huntington Beach, Valencia, Calabasas, Bakersfield, and more.

These events are designed to begin the process of helping prospective patients find out if they are ready to make those first, big steps towards a life that be very different from before, but also far happier and healthier and ultimately worth it. Dr. Feiz understands that making a complete lifestyle change can be daunting, but the important thing is to never let complacency prevent learning about all of the available options.

If you are severely obese and interested in learning more about weight loss surgery, please call (800) 868-5946 today to inquire about attending a free seminar. You can also learn much more about bariatric procedures by visiting
