Have you been looking for weight loss surgery solutions?
The Lap Band Surgery Procedure may be an option for you if you have tried traditional methods of weight loss, have a high Body Mass Index and/or experience health problems due to your excess weight.
The Lap-Band is an adjustable silicone band that is placed around the top part of the stomach, effectively limiting your ability to over-eat. The band is placed in a laparoscopic surgery, meaning it is not as invasive as other surgeries. Essentially, the band makes your stomach smaller, quelling hunger, so you feel full much more quickly and the foods you eat pass through you at a slower rate.

Of course, Barnes Bariatric Solutions looks for just that — solutions — and if you aren’t pleased with the results of the Lap-Band, it is removable. But the average person who has the Lap-Band surgery loses 35 percent of their excess weight at the one-year mark, and 60% at 3 years, according to a study published in the research journal Obesity. The study also found that those results were “maintained or improved” at the two-year mark. So while the Lap-Band surgery may not provide a quick fix to your weight problem, it can offer you sustainable improvement over time.
As with any surgical procedure, there will be some pain and discomfort in the post-operative phase. But people are typically able to return to work after just one week and are able to go about normal activities about six to eight weeks after the band is placed.
