Benefits of Gastric Balloon

The benefits of Gastric Balloon were tested in a clinical study in the United States. The study looked at people with BMI between 30 and 40. People in the study received Gastric Balloon along with diet and exercise. They were compared with people who only used diet and exercise. The people who only used diet and exercise are called the Control group. Both groups had regular doctor visits during the study.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY?

I first started the bariatric surgery process in September 2012 with an information seminar and from the beginning I loved his message: obesity is a disease with ailments being things that encompass obesity- we must treat the obesity to treat disease. I'm so thankful for this lesson in life and I truly do see the big picture now! 

After my initial consult in October 2012, I didn't coordinate much with Dr. Moeinolmolki, as I was attending my monthly nutritionist visits. However, for my final consult in May 2013, and surgery on 28 May 2013, he remained professional, courteous, and absolutely amazing. He took care of my needs and questions regarding surgery. 

Dr. Moeinolmolki has been a pleasure to work with during this entire process! I'm so glad I picked him to perform my operation, and I am sad that he will be leaving!

Dr Moein is an amazing plastic surgeon and overall awesome physician!  From our first meeting I was very impressed with his understanding of what I was looking for and making me feel at ease. The staff was so nice, and the whole process was comfortable and reassuring.  My goal was to find a plastic surgeon that would help me achieve a sexy yet natural look for my breast lift. I never really had very big breasts to begin with, but my weight loss in college made them look droopy and sad.   Dr moein made my saggy C cups look and feel amazing by making them into a perky C cup, by performing a breast lift and augmentation.  I love, love, love the results and feel extremely confident showing them off.  They look natural and beautiful, and you can hardly see the incision lines.  My mission of sexy natural breasts has been accomplished:-) 

I should also add that I had some injectibles done by Dr. Moein, and think the results are fantastic! A syringe of Belotera in the tear trough took the fine lines and hollowness away, and the Voluma in the cheeks made them look fresh and revitalized.  He definitely has the eye for perfection and made my cheeks and eyes look amazing!    

Thank You Dr. M !
