Bariatric Surgery
Before & After Abe M.

“Before October 2018, I used to weigh 307 lb. and I was struggling a lot with physical activity. With Dr. David Davtyan’s expertise and care, I’m happy to say I now weigh 235 lb., and I feel absolutely great now that I’ve lost a total of 72 lb with the Lap Band Procedure!!!”
“Dr. David Davtyan and his team have taken excellent care of me, and now I’m enjoying life to the fullest. My life has changed for the better in such a good way that I even have a family member looking into the lap band procedure because he is fascinated with my weight loss results.”

Since I was young, I would always be made fun of because of my weight, but I was used to it. I would eat a lot of food excessively because my mother took care of me very well. Physically I felt good, but the rude comments are what affected me most. My life with my friends was good and they were the same size as me. I was able to do everything, but I would sometimes struggle with running and felt like I was dying. In 2018, I decided to make a change because I found out that my coworkers would make fun of me. So, I finally decided to look into weight loss procedures and found out about Dr. David Davtyan.

One day, I discovered Dr. David Davtyan by looking on Facebook. His Facebook ad appeared to me and I clicked it to learn more about what he was offering. Then, I decided to email the weight loss center, and the next day I was contacted and offered a free consultation.

During the procedure I had a great experience. Everyone treated me perfectly when I had the Lap-Band procedure at Cedars in Beverly Hills. Dr. Davtyan’s staff was amazing they treated me very well, and I loved how they explained everything to me which was really helpful. In fact, the other hospitals that I’ve been to before did not treat me so well and did not inform me about the procedure in its entirety.
For my Lap-Band recovery process, I had a little bit of surprise because a hernia needed to be repaired, but other than that it was good because Dr. Davtyan fixed my hernia. The nurses there were also great. They always made sure I was attended to properly, and anytime I had any trouble they would be there to help me out. When I went home, everything healed very well. I even stopped taking the medication that was recommended to me because I felt no more pain.

Everything in my life is better now that I have the Lap-Band. At first I didn’t tell anyone, not even my family because they were against it. Even though I was embarrassed to have this procedure and for people to know, everyone still saw me lose a lot of weight. After I started seeing my weight loss results, I finally decided to let people know what was going on with my weight loss, and to my surprise they were very happy for me. I decided to then tell my parents. At first, they were upset with me, but after they saw how many pounds I’ve lost and kept on losing, they accepted the Lap Band procedure and were happy for me. Now, when I go out to a restaurant with my friends, they are always surprised to see that I eat less than them and they support my commitment to keeping the weight off.

Dr. Davtyan is absolutely great. I didn’t have any problems with him at any point in time. One of the things that I really appreciated from him is that he was willing to meet me at his Rancho Cucamonga weight loss center, instead of the Beverly Hills location, since I live all the way out in San Bernardino. Dr. Davtyan would spend enough time with me and treated me very well. I really love how friendly he is, and how he really makes you feel comfortable at the office. Sometimes he can be harsh when you don’t take the right weight loss steps, but that’s my fault. Before you know it, he’ll put you back on track to succeed in your weight loss journey. Also, his staff is truly amazing. I remember one of them named Yaya really helped me out during my journey. Every time I would text Yaya, she would text me right away. She would give me a fast response to any questions I had which was extremely helpful.

If someone were to consider the Lap-Band procedure, I would tell them to go for it. Before October 2018, I used to weigh 307 lb. and I was struggling a lot with physical activity. With Dr. David Davtyan’s expertise and care, I’m happy to say I now weigh 235 lb., and I feel absolutely great now that I’ve lost a total of 72 lb with the Lap Band!!! It’s a life changing procedure, especially if you struggle with weight loss. I already have a family member looking into the lap band procedure because he is fascinated with my weight loss results. I would refer anyone to Dr. Davtyan because the lap band procedure worked for me. If it works for me, then it will work for you. Thank you very much Dr. Davtyan for helping me with my weight loss journey
