LAP-BAND®︎ surgery aims to help achieve sustained weight loss by ensuring that small meals will satisfy hunger.
What is LAP-BAND®︎ surgery
The LAP-BAND®︎ is placed around the upper part of the stomach to create a small pouch that fills with each bite of solid food consumed. The brain responds by thinking the whole stomach is full. Food moves into the lower and larger part of the stomach at a slower, more controlled rate. Food is then digested and absorbed unchanged in the same way as before the LAP-BAND®︎ procedure. Even when eating less food, patients feel satisfied and full.
Why have LAP-BAND®︎ surgery?
LAP-BAND®︎ surgery ensures that small meals will satisfy. It’s possible to go longer between meals, and hunger and craving for food subsides. The LAP-BAND®︎ may be the right solution for people who:
- are at least 16 years of age
- have a BMI between 30 and 40
- are willing to make changes to eating habits and lifestyle
