Beverly Hills Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery - The Weight Loss Surgery Center Of Los Angeles

Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery in Beverly Hills California

Obesity and excessive weight gain are extremely common, affecting your health, appearance and overall quality of life. If you have tried to control your weight through diet and exercise without success, you are not alone. The key to weight loss success is having the right tools and support to help you on your journey. Bariatric surgery and medical weight loss procedures can help you achieve your goals. Dr. David Davtyan is a bariatric weight loss surgery specialist in Beverly Hills, California, and our founder at The Weight Loss Surgery Center Of Los Angeles.

The Weight Loss Surgery Center of Los Angeles is a state-of-the-art bariatric center with multiple locations in the Beverly Hills and LA metro area. Our procedures range from full bariatric surgery to minimally invasive weight loss procedures, even non-surgical weight loss procedures. Dr. Davtyan and our team of bariatric experts work closely with our patients to determine the best procedure for their specific situation. We offer our patients the best possible surgical outcomes with the latest innovation in weight loss surgery and bariatric procedures. Some of the bariatric and weight loss procedures we offer at The Weight Loss Surgery Center of Los Angeles include:

Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Gastric sleeve surgery, also referred to as laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG), is a minimally invasive operation that involves the removal of part of the stomach. The new smaller vessel is tailored into a new narrow and smaller capacity stomach “sleeve.” This procedure is completed laparoscopically through small incisions in the abdomen, permanently removing up to 80% of the stomach. The portion of the stomach removed creates the majority of ghrelin in the body, the hormone that affects brain hunger.

Sleeve gastrectomy has a high success rate due to the food consumption restriction and lower levels of ghrelin. Patients can lose 60% or more of their excess weight in the first years after surgery.

Gastric Balloon Procedures

The Weight Loss Surgery Center of Los Angeles offers both the Obalon™ and Orbera® gastric balloon procedures, a non-surgical option for effective weight loss. Gastric balloons involve the placement of inflatable gastric balloons filled with either gas or saline into the stomach for a period of six months with the scope of suppressing hunger, inducing early satiety and resulting in significant weight loss. We have had patients lose up to 80 pounds with the gastric balloon program.

Lap-Band Surgery

Lap-Band surgery, also known as laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB, Lap-Band, LapBand, and Lap-Band System), is minimally invasive with incredible results. Lap-Band is a safe and effective bariatric procedure that involves the placement of an inflatable band around the upper part of the stomach. The band suppresses hunger, reduces stomach volume, slows the pace of food intake and leads to significant and lasting weight loss (up to 250 lbs. at our facility). The band is connected to a subcutaneous port through which saline injections in an office setting can make the band tighter or looser, as needed. The Lap-Band procedure is easily reversible.

Gastric Bypass Surgery

Gastric bypass, also called Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB), is a minimally invasive laparoscopic bariatric surgery procedure that has been used for decades. The procedure involves stapling off a small pouch of stomach attached to the esophagus and connecting it directly to the small intestine bypassing the large stomach. This dramatically reduces the volume of food intake because of the small size of the pouch. The little food that is consumed does not get proper digestion and absorption because of the bypassed stomach, which results in massive weight loss. This is why this procedure is both restrictive and malabsorptive.

Dr. David Davtyan does not recommend or perform gastric bypass surgery at The Weight Loss Surgery Center of Los Angeles. He believes that our other minimally invasive procedures can offer exceptional results with less risk to the health of our patients.

Lap-Band Removal or Revision Surgery

Lap-Band surgery is a semi-permanent procedure, and unlike many bariatric surgeries, is 100% reversible. It is fairly common for Lap-Band patients to seek removal, repositioning or replacing the banding device. After Lap-Band removal, the stomach is able to heal itself and realign itself to its normal position, shape and size after a period of time. Dr. David Davtyan of The Weight Loss Surgery Center of Los Angeles is highly qualified, skilled and experienced in the Lap-Band procedure and revision.

Body Contouring Procedures Post Weight Loss

Body contouring refers to a set of surgical and non-surgical procedures used to either reduce or tighten excessive skin that may be loose after massive weight loss. The Weight Loss Surgery Center of Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, CA, offers arm lift, thigh lift, breast lift, abdominoplasty, panniculectomy, liposuction or total body lift procedures to reshape and firm your body after your weight loss is complete.

Our bariatric surgical team at The Weight Loss Surgery Center of Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, CA, is led by David G. Davtyan M.D., FACS, FICS.
