Lap Band Surgery is a medical procedure which is proven highly effective in helping significantly overweight patients lose excess weight. This surgery is performed using a Lap Band, an adjustable silicone belt that is placed around the top of the stomach. The Lap Band is inflated with saline solution through an access port placed under the skin, which makes the passage to the lower part of the stomach smaller, thus, restricting food intake. This controls the patient’s ability to control his hunger and achieve a feeling of fullness. Since Lap Band Surgery is a minimally invasive procedure, it causes no large incision or scarring and significantly less post-operative pain.
