Types of Bariatric Surgery
At Dr. Feiz & Associates, a leading weight loss surgery center in Beverly Hills, Dr. Michael Feiz offers several types of bariatric surgery. One is a procedure known as gastric bypass. This involves dividing the stomach into two parts and redirecting the intestines to both portions. Another procedure known as a gastric sleeve involves removing 75-85% of the stomach and reshaping what remains into a sleeve-like structure. The third procedure offered by Dr. Feiz and his team of medical professionals is the Lap Band, which involves fitting an adjustable plastic band around the stomach, and then tightening it to constrict the stomach.
