Why the LAP-BAND®?
The Lap-Band® is a Safe, Reversible, and Effective Alternative to Gastric Bypass Surgery.
Imagine Not Feeling Hungry All Day Long!
The Lap-Band® Adjustable Gastric Banding System is a simple yet advanced technique that helps you gradually lose and control your weight with long term success. The LAP-BAND® is simply placed around the stomach to restrict food intake and provide an early sensation of fullness after eating a meal.
The Lap-Band® is a Safe, Reversible, and Effective Alternative to the Gastric Bypass.
The Lap Band is unique in that it can be adjusted or removed. Unlike the invasive Gastric Bypass procedure where your physiology is altered with staples, the Lap Band is secured by minimal stitching. If removed, the stomach typically returns to its original state and function. Also, the risk of having post-surgery nutritional deficiencies associated with the Gastric Bypass procedure is significantly reduced.
Best of all – it works!
