WHY CHOOSE Lap-Band®

The ultimate reason to consider the LAP-BAND® System is that you want to transform your life. You want to be able to enjoy a morning bike ride, or go on a second honeymoon, or chase your kids around the yard. You just want to feel better, both physically and emotionally. But first, you have to lose the extra weight – safely and intelligently.

Significant Results in 1 Year

The LAP-BAND® is proven to provide an average of 65% excess weight lost at 1 year. It’s an effective way to lose weight gradually and keep it off long-term.

Does Not Alter Anatomy

A minimally-invasive procedure places the band around your stomach to reduce the amount of food that you can eat at one time. No amputation of the stomach is required.

Life-Changing Transformations

On average, patients kept off 60% of their excess body weight after five years of having the LAP-BAND®. Most tend to lose about 6 inches off their waistline and hips.

Renewed Health

Weight loss following the LAP-BAND® procedure has been shown to improve or resolve serious weight-related medical conditions, such as diabetes and asthma.

PROCEDURE

The gastric band procedure is done laparoscopically, so only a few small incisions are made in the abdomen. The surgeon will navigate using a tiny camera, and operate using long, thin instruments.

The gastric band is carefully placed and secured around the upper part of your stomach, creating a small stomach pouch. The gastric band will be connected to an access port for adjustments.

Once the LAP-BAND® procedure is complete, it’s time for you to begin your recovery. Most patients can head home later that day, and are encouraged to communicate with their support team regularly.

Adjustments will be made to your gastric band to ensure maximum weight loss results, with the first adjustment usually occurring several weeks after surgery.

A: Yes. During the post operative period, your Surgeon will recommend that you do not drive, lift, pull or push for two to three weeks following your surgery.

Q: How often will I need to visit my Surgeon or physician following surgery?

A: While you’re healing, you will be seen on a regular basis, usually once after two weeks, and again six weeks following surgery. Typically, patients return for follow-up visits after three, six, nine, and 12 months for safe measure.

Q: Can the Gastric Band surgery be reversed?

A: Gastric Band surgery can be reversed; however, reversal procedures require more precaution than the original surgery. It’s usually only considered reversing these operations in patients who have had significant long term problems resulting from the surgery.

Q: Who is not a good candidate for Gastric Band surgery?

A: Because everyone’s weight concern is extremely diverse, your Surgeon will take specific criteria into consideration and discuss with you in detail during your consultation. Patients with psychiatric conditions such as depression, bipolar disease, and/or schizophrenia should be under the care of a psychiatrist before they consider surgery.

“ORBERA® made the difference when nothing else could.”

Before ORBERA®, Mary wasn’t happy with herself. She didn’t enjoy how she looked or how she felt. She didn’t even recognize who she was anymore. After some research, Mary knew that ORBERA® was for her. Now, she’s 43 lbs lighter and happier than ever.

“Make the commitment and be sure that you want to do it.”

For me the toughest part was making the decision to finally commit and say I’m going to do this. I would give anyone considering LAP-BAND® the same advice that my colleagues gave me, to make the commitment and be sure that you want to do it.
