lap band surgery

The Lap Band surgery is fully reversible and in most cases, the stomach returns to its original form after the reversal procedure. The gastric lap band procedure is a type of weight loss surgery that is both safer than conventional obesity surgery and less invasive. Part of the reason conventional obesity surgery is so risky is because it is so invasive. Before the operation, the surgeon must cut through layers of fat surrounding the stomach. After the operation, patients are relatively immobile, thereby increasing their risk of developing deep vein blood clots.

With the lap band procedure , the abdomen is not actually cut open, yet patients still receive the benefits of a surgery that restricts the size of the stomach. There is less pain and discomfort, and a shorter healing time and hospital stay. Also, because the operation is completely reversible--the device is simply removed--patients have options should complications arise.

Expected Weight Loss

This combined approach has tremendously decreased the risk of weight loss surgery for specific groups of patients, even when the risk of the two surgeries is added. Most patients can expect to lose 30 to 50% of their excess body weight over a 6 - 12 month period with the sleeve gastrectomy alone
