Is a Lap Band My Best Option?
Lap Band is one of the most popular procedures, but is it right for you? This decision shouldn’t be made on a whim. You should discuss your various surgical options with your doctor and base the choice on your lifestyle and medical history. It’s important to remember that any type of weight loss surgery is not meant to fix obesity and bad health choices, but rather jump start your path to a healthier weight. It’s also important to a have a little help. Beverly Hills Physicians is known as the best resource in Los Angeles to find the top bariatric surgeons to perform weight loss surgery.
Lap Band is a procedure which features an adjustable band that is meant to help you lose weight by reducing your stomach capacity. The band is placed around the top part of the stomach, creating a smaller pouch that holds far less food than before. Since your stomach is then smaller, you fill up faster after eating, which should promote faster weight loss. The gastric sleeve procedure is much more invasive, involving removing a large portion of the stomach permanently, though it also has some important hormonal benefits that may make it preferable for many patients. On the other hand, Lap Band is reversible, so many people feel more comfortable choosing this option. At Beverly Hills Physicians, we help patients recover from either surgery quickly and comfortably.
