LOS ANGELES, Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- World renown bariatric surgeon Dr. Michael Feiz, an innovator with such procedures as the gastric sleeve, has a suggestion for severely overweight people. The holidays are notorious for being a time when all of us might tend to put on a few extra pounds. Dr. Michael Feiz suggests that it might be a good time for everyone – but especially for people with serious weight problems – to focus their attention less on food and more on the actual lessons of the holidays and their relationships with family and friends. Indeed, Dr. Feiz argues, the holiday season can also offer patients a chance to take stock of their situation and consider workable solutions to their problems, including the most viable weight loss surgery options.

Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. is one the nation's best regarded practitioners of weight loss surgeries such as the lap band and Sleeve gastrectomy. He knows that every overweight person is different and no two of them face exactly the same situation. The holidays and the New Year, however, offer people some time to think about their options and the opportunity to take stock of what's really important to them. The trick is to get beyond the most superficial aspects of the holidays -- particularly overindulgence in food and, in many cases, alcohol – and think about the real meaning of the holiday.

Christmas, Hanukah, New Year's and other holidays are, each in their own way, celebrations of endurance and renewal. If we can look beyond superficial celebrations and the usually fattening seasonal treats that go with them, we can examine the lessons that might spur us to take the action that can often be literally lifesaving.   It's definitely an outstanding time to take a hard look at our efforts at improving our overall health. For severely obese people, this may mean contemplating whether they have "hit a wall" regarding their efforts at weight loss through exercise and a reduced calorie diet. If that's the case, then it may be time seriously consider bariatric surgery with an outstanding physician like Dr. Michael Feiz.

Renowned for his great surgical skill and boasting a zero mortality rate, Dr. Michael Feiz is widely regarded as possibly the nation's finest weight loss surgeon. Dr. Feiz's many grateful patients have also praised him for his compassion and sensitivity in dealing with the many often difficult issues brought up by issues dealing with such touchy matters as weight and food.
