Why Choose Gastric Sleeve Over Lap Band?

At Beverly Hills Physicians, there are two major bariatric surgery options for patients to mull over. First is Lap Band, a popular procedure, which features a band placed around the stomach to promote faster weight loss. The other major option is gastric sleeve. This procedure highly reliable but also more invasive and not reversible, which is why it’s a difficult decision. It’s vital that you discuss your decision with a doctor who can help you make an informed choice.

The gastric sleeve procedure involves removing a large portion of the stomach. Anywhere between 60% and 80% of the stomach is removed to create a sleeve-like shape. Lap Band relies on a smaller stomach pouch to keep patients from eating more. Gastric sleeve, on the other hand, actually reduces hunger sensations because of the removal of hunger stimulating hormones. That makes it a desirable weight loss surgery option for those whose obesity is related to always feeling hungry. The rate of weight loss is also much quicker than Lap Band, but with more short term success.

Since Lap Band isn’t for everyone, sometimes revision surgery is required. Lap Band revision to gastric sleeve is a procedure that’s usually done after disappointing results from the original procedure. Beverly Hills Physicians’ team of talented surgeons and wellness experts are dedicated to helping patients get the weight loss results that will positively impact their lives. We have locations throughout Los Angeles, including Pasadena, Thousand Oaks, and Oxnard. Call today to set up a free consultation.
