Southern California Patients Trusts Beverly Hills Physicians for Weight Loss
While it can be concerning to go under the knife for bariatric surgery, Beverly Hills Physicians boasts an excellent track record for sleeve gastrectomy in Beverly Hills and throughout all of Southern California, with their many locations. Sleeve gastrectomy surgery entails the surgical removal of about 85% of the stomach, and the remaining segment is fashioned into the shape of a small sleeve, or banana, hence the name of the surgery. Patients are able to lose weight through their ability to feel satisfied with much smaller portions of food, and they eat less frequently, as well.
Another surgery offered by Beverly Hills Physicians is the LAP-BAND procedure. Los Angeles lap band surgery with the board-certified bariatric surgeons at Beverly Hills Physicians entails the patient will have an adjustable silicone gastric band placed on their stomach, restricting its capacity for food, so patients eat much less and still feel satisfied. Digestion is also slower than usual, as food slowly travels through the site of the band and on through the digestive system as usual. No other permanent alterations are made to the body, which is why many patients prefer the lap-band, because of its lower complication rate and the ability to have it removed later, if they choose. However, fewer than 1% of patients elect to have their lap bands removed.
