Laser Clinics France Ltd Use A gastric Band which is a special inflatable band which is placed around the top portion of the patient’s stomach, creating a small pouch that limits or reduces the amount of food which you are able to eat at any one time.
The decision to undergo bariatric surgery came to Nicholas, 33, when his coworkers at a construction company broached the subject with him, and they referred him to Dr. Feiz. Tired of hovering near 300 pounds on the scale and wearing a 3XL-sized shirt and 44″ waist pants, Nicholas said he had little energy to exercise, and joint pain made it near impossible.
He also didn’t want the trend of taking blood pressure medication and snoring loudly at night to continue. Asking his wife Courtney, 30, to come with him to a free weight loss surgery seminar in Los Angeles, she decided it would be a good idea for Nicholas to start a weight loss journey with the surgical route. She was also intrigued by what she calls Dr. Feiz’ personable approaching, praising him for being “straightforward, and no BS”. By that, Courtney meant he tells prospective patients that lap band, gastric sleeve or surgery to convert lap band to sleeve was not a magic bullet to weight loss.
She and Nicholas appreciated his honesty as they moved forward on their weight loss journey.
