LOS ANGELES, Oct. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The University Herald reports that a recent study found that a patient's negative feelings about their weight could have a significant effect on their success after weight loss surgery. Further still, those who are highly vulnerable to negative feelings about their weight are also more likely to suffer from serious issues like low self-esteem and even depression. Fortunately, leading bariatric surgeon Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., understands these issues and is ready to help his patients ensure the most successful possible outcomes to weight loss procedures.
At the Geisinger's Obesity Institute, where the study took place, investigator and clinical psychologist Michelle R. Lent says that "future studies should assess the impact of early weight bias screening and intervention to promote better psychological health and weight loss results." The team at Dr. Feiz and Associates certainly agrees that it is always important for a patient to feel as comfortable as possible with themselves, as well as with the weight loss specialist they trust to perform their bariatric procedure. That's why Dr. Feiz makes a point to speak with every patient prior to their treatment, in order to get a sense of precisely what their weight loss goals might be, and what procedure is the right choice for their needs.
Furthermore, Dr. Feiz encourages his patients to mentally prepare for treatment in the following ways:
Like most other undertakings, the key to success with weight loss surgery is preparation, very definitely including mental preparation. Dr. Feiz and his team understand that, and they are ready and able to support patients before, during, and after procedures.
