BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., April 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- While the widely advertised Lap Band procedure has quickly become a revolutionary surgery for those who need to safely and permanently lose weight, many eligible patients choose not to undergo the procedure out of fear of scarring. Often individuals don't want their peers to know that they underwent a weight loss surgery because of embarrassment or the possible negative sentiment of their peers. However, their lies a solution for problematic scarring with Beverly Hills bariatric surgeon, Dr. Michael Feiz, who performs the Lap Band in Beverly Hills, as well as 10 other convenient locations throughout Los Angeles County. By perfecting his innovative techniques for the Lap Band procedure, Dr. Feiz is able to provide his patients with the effective surgery they seek, without the unsightly scarring that they may be left with via other surgeons.
In Dr. Feiz's Lap Band procedure, tiny incisions are made in the abdomen, which serve as portals for the laparoscopic instruments that are used to insert and fasten the band around the upper stomach. While most other surgeons employ the use of 5-7 one inch long incisions for this purpose, Dr. Feiz uses just 4 small incisions, 3 of which are no bigger than a grain of rice. This emphasis on precision and aesthetics leaves essentially no scarring, all the while reducing recovery time, the risk of infection, post-op pain, and the risk of incisional hernia. Being able to perform this procedure without leaving unsightly scarring is what has distinguished Dr. Feiz from many other bariatric surgeons in Los Angeles. The beauty of the Lap Band in Los Angeles with Dr. Feiz is that no other aspect of the surgery is sacrificed via these methods. Rather, these techniques serve to benefit the patient on all fronts, as mentioned above.
The extensive experience and passionate care Dr. Feiz provides for his patients is unmatched, designating him as the bariatric surgeon of choice for men and women who seek weight loss in Los Angeles via the Lap Band. Undergoing the Lap Band procedure allows patients to add 20 years to their lives, as well as relieve hazardous co-morbidities.
