What is Lap-Band?

The Lap-Band is a minimally invasive weight loss surgery technique with a low-risk profile that helps patients lose weight gradually. Long-term weight loss with the Lap-Band appears to be more dependent on good education and follow-up. Call or email today to see if LAP-BAND surgery is right for you.

The Lap-Band surgery does not require large incisions or changes to the digestive system, making it your most minimally invasive choice for bariatric surgery. Your recovery time will be less and your hospital stay shorter.

How Does Lap-Band Work?

The Lap-Band procedure involves placing an adjustable silicone band around the top part of the stomach, limiting the amount of food eaten at one time, thereby allowing patients to feel full and stay full. In short, it is a restrictive procedure.

Who is a Good Candidate for Lap-Band?

  • If you are looking for a reversible procedure, the Lap-Band is the only reversible weight loss procedure available at this time.
  • If you are looking to lose weight gradually, Lap-Band may be right for you.
