The LAP-BAND® SYSTEM®: What to Expect

LAP-BAND® surgery is a minimally invasive, outpatient procedure that offers a number of benefits, including a relatively quick recovery time and no permanent alterations to your body. If you have a lower BMI (typically 30-40) and wish to avoid lengthy recovery times, the LAP-BAND® System might be right for you.

Advantages of the LAP-BAND® Systeminclude:

  • Minimally invasive surgery
  • Fast recovery time
  • Reduced risk of complications
  • No hospitalization required
  • Adjustable/customizable band
  • Reversible, if necessary

Because the band is almost always inserted laparoscopically (meaning no large incision is made), and the surgery does not require an opening in the gastrointestinal tract, the LAP-BAND® System can greatly reduce the risk of complications, infections, and visible scarring.

How Does the LAP-BAND® Work?

The LAP-BAND® System works by restricting the amount of food a person is able to eat. After the surgery, you will be able to eat less food and still feel full. The LAP-BAND® System has been shown to help individuals with significant, short-term weight loss in the first year or two following the procedure, as well as continued weight loss with dietary and lifestyle changes.

Though the LAP-BAND® System has been proven to help countless individuals achieve long-lasting weight loss and improved health, it is not for everyone. Follow-up appointments, as well as a strong dedication to lifestyle changes, are absolutely crucial to your success. At Carter Bariatrics, our experienced Dallas-Fort Worth weight loss surgeon can help you determine if the LAP-BAND® System is the right weight loss option for you. We offer free consultations and customized plans to help our patients transform their lives and their futures.
