Indeed, chances are you have already heard of Dr. Feiz & Associates, a Beverly Hills center that specializes in advanced bariatric procedures like Lap Band surgery and gastric sleeve surgery. Dr. Michael Feiz, the founder and lead physician at Dr. Feiz & Associates, has dedicated his career to helping people overcome obesity. While he understands that self-esteem is a big driver for people seeking information about weight loss surgery, he also wants people to know and appreciate that being overweight can be a serious medical issue. Dr. Feiz is in the business of saving lives, pure and simple. If you have a BMI of 40 or higher, or a BMI of 35 and have one or more co-morbidities like hypertension or Type 2 diabetes, you should reach out to Dr. Feiz & Associates for more information about these life-changing procedures. Don't let your concerns about cost be an obstacle to at least learning more about what these surgeries can do for you. The team at Dr. Feiz & Associates can provide you with additional details on Lap Band insurance and other ways to lose weight without losing all your savings. If you are struggling with obesity, you may be a good candidate for one or more of the procedures offered by Dr. Feiz and his team of talented and experienced medical professionals. That said, you will need to consult with Dr. Feiz before determining the best course of action. Some procedures are more invasive than others, and may not be suitable for people with certain health conditions. Procedures like gastric sleeve and gastric bypass are irreversible, as opposed to the Lap Band, which can be removed to allow the stomach to revert to its normal shape.
