System was the first adjustable gastric banding device to be approved by the FDA. The system works by reducing your stomach’s capacity. With this restrictive procedure.
What Is LAP-BAND® Surgery?
The LAP-BAND® system is designed to significantly reduce your stomach’s capacity to hold food. You will feel fuller faster and longer; by restricting the quantity of food you are able to eat, you will end up losing a significant amount of weight. The LAP-BAND® system allows you to have complete control over your dietary intake and slows the speed at which your food is digested. This procedure is done laparoscopically and requires 4-5 tiny incisions to be made in your abdomen in order for the adjustable gastric band to be installed. Once the band has been placed and adjusted, your incisions will be carefully closed to minimize scarring and your body will begin to heal.

The LAP-BAND® system can be adjusted over time to fit your ever changing needs and promote optimal results. There are multiple benefits to undergoing LAP-BAND® surgery at our Juarez Bariatric Medical Center, including:
