LOS ANGELES, Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Michael Feiz has performed countless successful lap band, sleeve gastrectomy, and lap band revision procedures; while his patients recount numerous reasons for undergoing a surgery, one benefit of the procedure they are usually too shy to admit to has to do with the improvements in the more intimate side of their life. It's a sensitive subject, but it's worth looking at the very real benefits to relationships and sexuality of significant weight loss, even as more and more patients weigh the pros and cons of lap band vs. sleeve gastrectomy and other procedures.
- Improved Self Confidence. This might seem obvious, but the matter of confidence goes a lot deeper than you might expect. The new book, XL Love: How the Obesity Crisis is Complicating America's Love Life" by Sarah Varney, explores, among other topics, how obesity in younger women tends to both decrease the odds of developing a genuine romantic relationship, while also increasing the odds of premature sexual activity. The pain and sense of isolation associated with these matters can linger well into adulthood and cause numerous issues. In addition, many obese adults who have put on additional weight might find themselves fending off the advances of a partner or spouse simply because they feel unattractive.
Losing weight by any means tends to resolve several of these issues as women and men find themselves enjoying their new bodies. While it's important for weight loss patients to have realistic expectations about their post-weight loss appearance, the improvements are generally quite dramatic, and make most patients feel far more comfortable in their own skin.
- Reduced Snoring and Increased Energy. Of all the impacts of obesity, snoring is one of the least discussed impacts of weight gain. It turns out, however, that overall increase in fatty tissue throughout the body also leads to increased fat in and around the throat and neck area. This often results in loud snoring, which can often be an issue in relationships and, in some cases, may lead to partners sleeping separately and missing important opportunities for bonding and intimacy.
That's not all, snoring is often the most obvious symptom of sleep apnea, a serious, potentially life-threatening, condition in which breathing during sleep is temporarily interrupted. Apnea sufferers very often experience great fatigue and daytime sleepiness, which are definitely not conducive to an active love life.
- Female and Male Enhancement. It's a touchy topic to say the least, but both women and men can experience obesity-related changes to sexual organs that can decrease their sexual desire as well as their confidence. Obesity can also reduce blood flow to the clitoris as well as the actual size of the penis, not to mention levels of testosterone in the body. Reversing obesity will, very often, reverse these issues. The result is that weight loss surgery patients typically find themselves feeling more confident about their sexuality, and more interested in being intimate with their partner, than they have in years.
If you are severely obese and interested in improving not only your love life, but your overall quality of life and health, then a lap band or sleeve gastrectomy in Marina del Rey, Beverly Hills, and locations throughout Southern California may be well worth exploring.

President Obama recently announced the launch of a new national awareness campaign to "encourage more Americans to move beyond passwords – adding an extra layer of security like a fingerprint or codes sent to your cellphone." The shift from single passwords to multi-factor authentication couldn’t be timelier or more strategic. This session will focus on why passwords alone are no longer effective, and why the time to act is now. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Chris Webber, security strateg...

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
