The LAP-BAND® is commonly an outpatient treatment, with a recovery time of about one week. The flexible band is positioned around the top section of the stomach restricting the amount of food that will travel through it, consequently assisting the individual in attaining weight loss. The LAP-BAND® treatment does not require any sort of re-routing of the anatomy, cutting, or any type of stapling.
This will leave the patient with a gentler recovery duration than other kinds of weight reduction surgery. WATCH OUR FREE ONLINE SEMINAR TO LEARN MORE >
