LOS ANGELES, June 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- You are struggling with obesity. You have tried to lose weight through diet and exercise, only to finally give up in frustration when they failed to deliver any tangible results. You know you're not alone with this problem, and yet you feel ashamed anyway. It's no surprise; society has not been kind to the obesity epidemic. There is a certain stigma attached to weight, and there is a certain stigma attached to bariatric surgery as well. Too many people who have tried diet and exercise, and are considering effective procedures like gastric sleeve surgery or gastric bypass, end up not going through with it because they are afraid of being judged. "You're lazy; you're looking for the easy way out." You can hear those words in your head before anyone ever opens their mouth. But let's get real for one second here: first, the stigma of bariatric surgery is fading fast. The science behind these procedures is getting more play in the media, and eroding the ignorance and presumptuousness that has overshadowed them for too long. Second, even if that weren't the case, even if you believe people really would think those things of you, are you willing to give up on a healthier, longer life, before you have even explored this option, because of other people's opinions?
Bariatric surgery is about reclaiming your life, and reclaiming your sense of self-worth. That is exactly what so many weight loss patients have experienced after undergoing one of these procedures at Dr. Feiz & Associates, a leading medical center in Los Angeles. Dr. Michael Feiz has seen his patients transform, both physically and psychologically. He has seen them find a new lease on life.
