LAP-BAND Weight Loss Surgery & LAP-BAND Total Care in Ridgewood, NJ
In the United States, obesity remains the leading causes of death, and opens the door to many serious health concerns including diabetes, heart disease, stroke and some types of cancer. Fortunately, for those who find their excess weight is stubborn to diet and exercise, there are many types of weight loss procedures that can help induce weight loss and help bolster sustained health. Ranging from minor cosmetic procedures to full-fledged bariatric surgeries, these weight loss procedures help obese patients whose weight poses serious health risks. One of these bariatric procedures, LAP-BAND® weight loss surgery , can help slow the food entering the stomach with a gastric banding device. These procedures aim to safely and effectively reduce a patient’s food intake, allowing for long-term weight loss at a healthy rate.
In a LAP-BAND® surgery, a gastric band is tied around the top of your stomach, and a natural saline solution is introduced to allow the band to expand and contract based on your needs. The result is a slowing of your intake of food, making you become fuller, faster. For patients who are qualified for a LAP-BAND® surgery (usually those at or above a BMI of 40), LAP-BAND Total Care® may serve a more fruitful option for them, offering additional support that the traditional option doesn’t.
