How to Tell if Lap Band Revision Surgery is Right for You

If you're not finding the desired results after your Lap Band surgery, Dr. Feiz can perform revision Lap Band treatment to put you back on track

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With statistics from Health Tech Zone showing that 68.5% of Americans are overweight or obese, it's more obvious than ever that the obesity epidemic is still on the march.. Fortunately, medical weight loss specialists like Dr. Michael Feiz and his team at Dr. Feiz and Associates are helping to combat obesity with the very latest in bariatric treatments including the most advanced Lap Band and gastric sleeve surgery.

Bariatric medicine has proven to be very effective at helping obese individuals to lose weight rapidly, safely and sustainably, but due to various unforeseen circumstances, some weight loss treatments don't always lead to the desired results. In these cases, there is still plenty of reason for hope, as Dr. Feiz has demonstrated his great skill and experience performing numerous revision treatments like Lap Band to gastric sleeve surgery.

Here are some reasons a Lap Band patient might consider undergoing a revision weight loss treatment:

  • Failure to Lose Weight – Part of the popularity of the Lap Band procedure comes from its effectiveness. Many patients of Dr. Feiz find that they experience rapid, safe and sustainable weight loss. However, some patients who may worked with other surgeons have reported dissatisfaction with their rate of weight loss or even an inability to lose weight altogether.
  • Inability to Eat Properly – The main purpose of a Lap Band is to regulate the patient's eating habits. However, in some cases, the change in eating habits leaves a patient unable to eat in the manner that is best for their own specific health and nutrition needs.
  • Lap Band Complications – Compared to many older weight loss procedures, Lap Band has a low risk of surgical complications. However, the possibility does exist for band slipping, mechanical malfunction, or other complications – particularly when the banding procedure is performed by a less experienced surgeon.

In any of these cases, patients can quickly begin to feel very frustrated. After all, even a less-invasive surgical procedure like a Lap Band requires a great deal of commitment on behalf of the patient. That's why a revision surgery is so frequently appreciated by patients of Dr. Feiz.

Since a revision procedure often entails undoing the previous work of another surgeon before performing the gastric sleeve treatment, the Lap Band revision requires the deft work and meticulous perfection of a truly skilled, expert surgeon. Fortunately for his Southern California patients, Dr. Feiz has received specialized training in bariatric and minimally invasive surgery from the world famous Cedars Sinai Medical Center. Further still, he is an active member of the American Society for Bariatric Surgeons and the American College of Surgeons, commendations that go a long way toward ensuring peace-of-mind in all of his patients.

For further information call 310-855-8058 or visit Dr. Feiz's website. Your phone call or web visit may be your first step to a healthier and happier life.
