Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 25, 2016
The owner of a popular barbecue restaurant, Brian Choy, has lost over 218 pounds with the help of the gastric sleeve procedure, according to an article published April 1st in The Wichita Eagle. Mr. Choy explains that, at his previous weight of 495 pounds, he was experiencing issues such as hip and knee pain, aching feet, and heel pain, which made it very difficult to stay on his feet and continue running his restaurant. Inspired by the success of his friend and local pastor who had had the gastric sleeve procedure, Mr. Choy elected to have the same procedure, which involves removing approximately 80% of the stomach. Since losing so much weight, Mr. Choy is “much happier” and that his feet are no longer in constant pain, as his wife explains in the article.
“My energy level is ridiculous…it’s incredible,” Mr. Choy remarks on his dramatic weight loss. He also points to his overall improved health, “my desire to be around for my wife and be here for her is way stronger than that [of food].”
According to the Los Angeles based bariatric surgery clinic, Dr. Feiz & Associates, Mr. Choy’s remarkable success is far from unusual, and that a great many of the patients seen at the clinic have experienced results not unlike Mr. Choy’s. From improving obesity related comorbidities such as type 2 diabetes and hypertension, to improving the patient’s overall mobility and extending their lifespans, Dr. Feiz & Associates explains that the decision to undertake bariatric surgery is the logical choice for many Americans struggling with severe obesity.
Dr. Feiz & Associates explains that the gastric sleeve procedure is quickly becoming one of the most popular bariatric surgery options. The center notes that the procedure’s benefits are two-fold: by removing a large amount of the stomach tissue, patients will feel fuller from meals much faster than previously, which helps to reduce overeating. What’s more, the procedure also curbs the release of the hormone ghrelin, which is responsible for those all too common hunger pangs that become more frequent as the body begins to shed its excess body weight. Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that this two-fold effect is scientifically proven to be effective in losing weight and keeping it off in the long-term.
