When compared to other bariatric surgeries, the Lap-Band® procedure offers several advantages. Placed around the upper portion of the stomach, the gastric band creates a small pouch, which helps patients feel full faster and longer by limiting the amount of food they can eat at one time. The procedure is minimally invasive, allowing patients to return home on the same day of their surgery and begin their weight-loss journey sooner. As your needs change, the Lap-Band changes with you—it’s completely adjustable via a small port in the skin. For those looking for a safe, long-lasting, and effective weight-loss solution, view Lap-Band surgeons in the Houston area below.
