Fighting the Weight Loss Doldrums

We talk a lot on this blog about how weight loss surgery in Los Angeles at one of our clinics can place patients on the path towards a far more positive lifestyle. It's definitely true that such procedures as the gastric sleeve and lap band can make it far easier to make the adjustments severely obese people need to begin a lifelong habit of truly healthy eating.

Of course, it's equally true that patients are still required to work at developing the drastically altered eating habits they will need to permanently lose their excess weight. Moreover, sometimes patients make significant progress and then start to plateau. Depending on how much weight has already been lost, this might be an issue that has to be addressed. In many cases, a patient and doctor might decide that the original procedure simply wasn't sufficient.

At Dr. Feiz & Associates, we perform a number of revision procedures that can correct issues with earlier bariatric operations that might have been performed elsewhere. If you have had a weight loss procedure elsewhere and are facing lackluster results that appear to be immune to your best efforts, we're here to help. Consider calling us at 310-855-8058.
