The bariatric surgery center notes that the in-depth look into the weight loss surgery process of one patient highlights the life-changing benefits that severely obese individuals can look forward to following weight loss surgery.

Weight loss surgery is often the best choice for patients seeking to lose a significant amount of weight.

The bariatric surgery clinic, Dr. Feiz & Associates, notes that eligible individuals who choose weight loss surgery are more likely to have the best success in overcoming the physical and psychological health problems caused by obesity.

An article published June 3 on CNN details the many obstacles and lifestyle changes before and after surgery encountered by Marilia Brocchetto, a weight loss surgery recipient. In the article, Brocchetto explains how she was able to overcome the obstacles she encountered throughout the entire process as well as the health complications she avoided. The bariatric surgery clinic, Dr. Feiz & Associates, notes that eligible individuals who choose weight loss surgery are more likely to have the best success in overcoming the physical and psychological health problems caused by obesity. They also have a choice of a number of options, including:

  • Gastric Sleeves- Enabling healthier eating habits by reducing the patient’s stomach size, the highly skilled professionals at Dr. Feiz & Associates note that patients undergoing sleeve gastrectomy in Los Angeles and elsewhere typically thrive in the weeks, months, and years following a procedure. Diet and exercise are the key to weight loss, but exerting the kind of strict portion control needed to lose weight is extremely difficult and becomes more difficult over time. The gastric sleeve, however, gets to the root of the problem by actually reducing the appetite, both by making the stomach a great deal smaller and through greatly reducing the production of a key hunger hormone, ghrelin. The highly qualified surgeons at Dr. Feiz & Associates note that they are sensitive to the physical as well as the mental well-being of their patients and provide detailed follow-up services.
  • Lap Band Surgery- Patients who have their health and psychological wellness thoroughly evaluated can be recommended to undergo Lap Band surgery, Dr. Feiz & Associates notes. The highly trained surgeons at the weight loss clinic note that the process of inserting a band into the patient’s stomach requires extreme surgical precision and their team has performed a great many Lap Band procedures. The weight loss clinic also notes that the banding is attractive to some patients who may want the option of reversing or adjusting their surgery procedure.
  • Needlescopic Sleeve Gastrectomy- The professionals at Dr. Feiz & Associates note that in order to provide the patient with the highest level of weight loss success, performing bariatric surgery with the most high-end and innovative procedures such as needlescopic sleeve gastrectomy is key. With incisions measuring three millimeters long, this minimally invasive method of bariatric surgery is helpful in providing patient with a more positive body image during their weight loss journey due to the virtually invisible scarring. In addition, the clinic notes, the health benefits experienced by patients that undergo needlescopic gastrectomy include a decreased risk for infection, less time in recovery, decreased levels of the hormone ghrelin, and an overall improved quality of life after weight loss.

Healthier eating habits, an improved quality of life and higher self-esteem are just some of the many benefits that individuals interested in weight loss surgery can look forward to. The highly skilled professionals at Dr. Feiz & Associates note that their approach to weight loss surgery always puts the needs and concerns of their patients first.
