If you’re in search of a minimally-invasive, highly effective, and even adjustable and reversible weight loss surgery, a LAP-BAND may be an option worth exploring. A Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric (LAP) band is a small and flexible belt that is placed around the upper section of the stomach.


The LAP-BAND is made of silicone and featuring the ability to be tightened by adding saline to fill the band, it is connected to a port located under the abdomen. A LAP-BAND is designed to shrink and restrict the size of the stomach, and in turn the amount of food it can hold, while also substantially slowing the passage of food into the intestine. This allows patients to feel fuller faster, and consume much smaller portion sizes. And since the band can be adjusted, the size of the stomach pouch can be easily changed and altered depending on the patients’ changing needs.
