Dr. Feiz (drfeiz.com) Asks: What Is Better for You? Lap Band Surgery/Realize Band Surgery or Gastric Bypass Surgery
Date:3/12/2010

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., March 12 /PRNewswire/ -- For Southern California residents who are looking to shed a large amount of weight fast, bariatric surgery is an effective option. People classified as obese, who have a BMI of over 40, are prime candidates for Lap Band Surgery and Gastric Bypass Surgery. Post procedure, patients of lap band and gastric bypass surgery can lose anywhere from ten to twenty five pounds of fat per week, depending on which procedure they choose.

Expert bariatric surgeon Dr. Feiz has performed the world's most lap band surgeries. At his Beverly Hills Comprehensive Weight Loss Center, a leading team of weight loss surgeons, psychologists and nutritionists evaluate new patients to determine whether they are good candidates for Lap Band Surgery or gastric bypass surgery. Since the Center performs so many successful bariatric Weight Loss Surgeries each year, Dr. Feiz has a thorough knowledge of the cons and pros of lap band and gastric bypass, including which procedure is ideal for each patient's individual lifestyle factors and weight loss goals.

Gastric Bypass Surgery severely restricts the amount of food the patient consumes and increases the feeling of fullness that produces tremendous weight loss results of up to twenty five pounds per week. Gastric Bypass Surgery also involves attaching a portion of the intestine that reacts poorly to high fat foods to the end of the pouch, further discouraging patient to indulge in calorie laden foods post operation. For these reasons, gastric bypass surgery is a good option for morbidly obese patients who need immediate, aggressive weight loss intervention with a permanently altered stomach.

Lap Band Surgery involves a removable, adjustable band placed on the stomach to temporarily create a smaller upper pouch, which restricts the amount of food a patient can consume resulting in weight loss. Additionally, Lap Band Surgery is reversible and can be performed laparoscopically. According to Dr. Feiz, lap band surgery is an ideal option for patients who can retrain themselves to change their eating habits.
