Reasons Why Gastric Sleeve Might Be Right for You
If you’ve decided to have weight loss surgery with the talented team at Beverly Hills Physicians, there are still more decisions for you to make. You have to choose which particular bariatric surgery is the right choice for you. This decision comes down to a lot of different factors. It’s really a decision that should start with a discussion with your surgeon, using information like family history, weight, height, and past medical issues to help make the right choice.
There are two major weight loss surgeries that are performed at Beverly Hills Physicians. Lap Band surgery and gastric sleeve are two very different surgeries, with the same goal in mind: to help you lose weight. Gastric sleeve is the more drastic of the two surgeries, making it the perfect option for those who are serious about losing weight. It includes removing a large portion of the stomach to reshape the stomach to look like a sleeve. This makes the patient feel full much faster and induces faster weight loss. Lap Band is a reversible procedure, but doesn’t always net the results you need to be a healthier you.
For those who opt for Lap Band instead of gastric sleeve, it’s still possible to have Lap Band revision to gastric sleeve surgery if you don’t like your results.
