What Does Dr. Feiz Offer in Terms of Weight Loss Procedures?
Dr. Michael Feiz offers gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and the Lap Band in Beverly Hills. Gastric sleeve surgery, or sleeve gastrectomy, involves removing around three quarters or more of the stomach and reshaping the remaining portion into a sleeve-like structure to regulate the flow of food. Gastric bypass accomplished much of the same result, but by dividing the stomach into two pouches and rearranging the small intestine to connect to both parts. Finally, Lap Band surgery works by inserting a small, flexible band around the stomach, which tightens to restrict food intake. Contact us for a FREE consultation to learn more.
