The Lap band surgery is adjustable gastric banding. The adjustable gastric banding procedure is the only adjustable and reversible weight loss surgery available in the United States today and is performed by making several tiny incisions in the upper abdomen. Small instruments, including a laparoscopic camera are inserted through these tiny incisions into the abdomen. A silastic band is securely placed around the upper portion of the stomach, creating a small pouch and a narrow passage into the larger stomach. Once the band is in place and secure, the surgical instruments are removed and all incisions are closed.
See your lapband physician. Take the first step to better health and an improved quality of life and let today be the first day on the journey to your normal weight life.
