LOS ANGELES, Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Weight loss appears to be the most common of all New Year's resolutions. That completely unsurprising news comes to us from a 2012 study published in the University of Scranton Journal of Clinical Psychology. Still, for all those millions of attempts at weight loss made by Americans each and every year, obesity remains a more serious health threat than ever. However, famed weight loss surgeon Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. reminds us that procedures such as gastric sleeve and lap band surgery are, in fact, proving more reliably successful than ever before. While the latest fad weight loss strategies, which right now include juice cleanses and alkaline/pH balance-based eating plans, have essentially no proven benefit when it comes to achieving long term weight loss for severely obese people, successful gastric sleeve and lap band surgery have been repeatedly proven to help achieve the most common and most difficult of all New Year's resolutions.

As one of the most respected names in weight loss medicine, Dr. Feiz would like to suggest to severely obese members of the public that they consider the possibility of obtaining a weight loss procedure before the end of the year. The most important benefit of an early start is that successful weight loss patients can start transforming their New Year's resolution into a reality, even before January 1, 2014.

Secondly, those who get their bariatric surgery started now may benefit from an early start. Anyone who has braved the crowds at gyms in early January knows that the first part of the New Year is a popular time to begin new health regimes. It's often the same way with weight loss surgeons, so it's never a bad idea to make your big change early before the hectic schedules of the New Year get underway.

Of course, any procedure only works well if performed by a highly skilled, board certified bariatric surgeon. As the master of the gastric sleeve and lap band Los Angeles medical observers recommend most, Dr. Michael Feiz is renowned for a level of supreme skill in performing often challenging bariatric procedures. That means that, every year on the first work day after New Year's, his office receives a number of inquiries from obese people who feel ready to make a big change in their life. Dr. Feiz and his staff agree that those who contact the doctor during the autumn period may have an easier time scheduling appointments at the most convenient times. Naturally, they are also able to start losing weight that much sooner.
