During the Lap-Band Procedure, a Gastric Band is placed around your stomach in the course of a minimally invasive, outpatient laparoscopic surgery. The band limits the amount of food you can eat to help you feel full sooner and longer. The Lap-Band is both removable and adjustable—when your needs change, it changes. Even if you are considering other bariatric surgeries, the Lap-Band may still be a good start.
The Lap-Band helps you take control over your weight. Only the Lap-Band can be tightened or loosened as your body or your physical needs change over time. With Lap-Band, you can curb constant hunger, gain control over your weight, and sustain your weight loss for the long term.
Adjustable, Adaptable, and Safe
Lap-Band is adjustable and reversible. It has the lowest rate of early postoperative complications and mortality among the approved bariatric procedures. And Lap-Band has the lowest risk for vitamin/mineral deficiencies.
Lap-Band Patients lose an average of 65% of their excess weight in the first year and 70% in the second year. The Lap-Band Program helps you control your feeling of fullness and how much you eat, giving you more power over your hunger and more control over your weight loss than ever before.
Weight loss resulting from the Lap-Band Program has been shown to resolve or improve serious obesity-related health conditions in many people, including Type II Diabetes, Hypertension, Asthma, Sleep Apnea, and GERD. In fact, 73% of all Lap-Band Patients reported remission of their Type II Diabetes due to their weight loss after two years on the program.
More Than 25 Years of Clinical Evidence
The Lap-Band is backed by over 25 years of clinical evidence with more than 1,000,000 bands placed around the world. Endorsed by leading surgeons and covered by most insurance companies, the Lap-Band is the only FDA approved laparoscopic weight-loss device commercially available in the United States.
