    How Does The Lap Band Work?

    The adjustable band, which is placed in the upper portion of the stomach, controls the amount of food entry to the stomach. This is done by creating a very small pouch above the band. Patient needs to eat slow and make effort in swallowing and feel full quickly with smaller amount of eating. Proper monitoring and gradual tightening of the band (adjustment) and education of proper use of the band and healthy choices and exercise will make band a good tool to achieve weight loss.


    Benefits of Other Weight Loss Procedures

    Sleeve gastrectomy is a stronger procedure than band and creates more steady weight loss with more control of metabolic conditions such as diabetes. This procedure works by creating a small and narrow stomach which gets full quickly and reduces appetite and intake, plus has hormonal control of appetite to some degree this procedure has been very safe and most of the time done on observation 24 hours stay in surgical facility which is considered outpatient.

    Gastric bypass is the strongest weight loss procedure currently done in most of the institutions. This procedure not only has the benefit of sleeve gastrectomy but also reduces the amount of food that can be absorbed, this dual effect has made this procedure a very effective and stable weight loss procedure.

    Revisional surgery designed to correct the procedure you had in the past and now has failed. For example, if band has failed for you it can be removed and changed to sleeve gastrectomy, or gastric bypass that you had in the past and now is not working for you, it can be revised and corrected.
