Headline: Get Life-Changing Weight Loss Surgery without Anyone Knowing You Had It Done

With sophisticated techniques and cutting edge technology, the nation’s top surgeons at Dr. Feiz & Associates offer patients the chance to shed massive amounts of weight, with virtually no post-operative scarring to indicate surgery was ever performed

Los Angeles, CA, October 3, 2011 – Here is a rhetorical question for you: if someone gets major weight loss surgery in Los Angeles and no one notices, did it ever happen? For countless patients at Dr. Feiz & Associates, who have reaped the benefits of surgical procedures that left almost no discernible scars of any kind, the answer is a resounding yes! While the advanced methodology employed by Dr. Feiz & Associates now means patients recover faster, with less pain and less scars, it hasn’t diminished the effectiveness of these procedures as a weight loss solution in the slightest. Indeed, operations like micro sleeve gastrectomy and micro Lap Band in Los Angeles offer unprecedented solutions for people suffering from morbid obesity.

Dr. Feiz & Associates is a state-of-the-art weight loss facility administered by internationally renowned Dr. Michael Feiz. Educated at UCLA (a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience, with honors, and a Masters in Biochemistry) and New York Medical College (a Medical Degree, with honors), Dr. Feiz did his internship and residency at the prestigious Los Angeles County+USC Medical Center, as well as additional training in bariatric and minimally invasive surgery at Cedars Sinai Medical Center. He and his colleague Dr. Monali Misra are among the select few surgeons to have extensive experience with the STARR Treatment, which enables them to offer micro sleeve gastrectomy and micro Lap Band in Beverly Hills and other locations in Southern California, including Rancho Cucamonga, Ontario, Huntington Beach, and many more.

What is so revolutionary about this STARR Treatment? Essentially, it allows surgeons like Dr. Feiz and Dr. Misra to perform major weight loss surgery by making only a single incision to the abdomen. Hence the only scar once the surgery is complete is smaller than a freckle or a grain of rice. Less cutting also means less discomfort and a faster recovery period. These doctors already offered laparoscopic weight loss surgery, which left only a few small scars, but now they have made the lingering signs of a procedure even less noticeable.

A Life Changing Experience -by Maddy Bronstein

Hi my name is Maddy Bronstein. I am 49 year wife and mother of one child and I have been dealing with weight issues for several years now. I have tried all the usual avenues examples: fad diets, yoyo dieting and starving myself just to name a few. Educated in the medical field as a registered nurse I am well aware of the many health issues associated with being overweight.
After trying the conventional ways to lose the weight, I found myself in a fury of searching a more permanent solution to losing the weight for good. Talking with many people with similar problems and my associates within the medical community. One name kept occurring that is Dr.Michael Feiz.
I was very hesitant to do a surgical procedure but my choices were becoming limited and I wanted to lose the weight in a timely manner that was also safe. I went ahead and contacted Dr. Feiz’s office and made an appointment to speak with him regarding my options related to my weight issue. The staff was extremely caring and concerned for my privacy and very helpful. I was able to arrange an appointment with Dr. Feiz for our first consultation.
Arriving at Dr. Feiz office I was understandably nervous. When I was taken back to his office his mannerism was soft spoken and not only comforting but I felt he understood my fruitions and concerns. He explained the surgical options available to me. Each surgical procedure he advised to me, Dr. Feiz went into great depth regarding the pros and cons, and which surgical procedure was best suited for me. He understood my needs and what best suited me, which I really appreciated.  We decided the Gastric Laparoscopic Sleeve was the appropriate procedure for me and I scheduled the surgery.
My surgery, scheduled on July 13, 2011 at the Town Center Surgery, in Valencia California. I was asked if I wanted to be a part of a new procedure called the STARR Treatment, and I elected to do this innovated procedure. The Micro Gastric Sleeve with STARR Treatment instead. The reason I chose this surgery over the Lap Band is I wanted a permanent solution to my weight issues. The STARR Treatment (Surgical Tiny Access and Rapid Recovery) Treatment allows for Micro Gastric Sleeve Surgery which is the same as the Gastric Sleeve Surgery but performed entirely through a single very miniscule incision. Dr Feiz use a single laparoscopic platform called "The Spider Surgical System" which is contained within a very small thin metal tube. The tube creates a very small incision and once inserted into your belly the instrument unfolds inside you like a tiny umbrella. This allowed Dr Feiz to perform the Micro Gastric Sleeve Surgery with full right and left instrumental movements. When Dr. Feiz finished the surgery and was complete the instrument collapses back into the tube and is removed.
The surgery which was less than an hour and a half went flawlessly. Following the standard protocol I was observed and released after 24 hours. What is so amazing about this surgery is an almost scar-less result. I had very little scarring if any, to be seen. My scarring was less than a size of a freckle and my post operative pain was very minimal.

It’s now 12 weeks since the STARR surgery and I am THRILLED with the results. At this date, I have lost over 47 pounds and I am feeling “fantastic” I "HIGHLY" recommend you investigate this procedure to anyone who is battling weight issues.
       Thank you Dr. Feiz for changing my life for the better!!!
