Lap Band Surgery

Lap Band Surgery


In a lap band surgery, a ring is placed on the upper part of the stomach. This creates a small bag, which reduces the stomach’s size so that less food is needed to feel satisfied. Inside the ring, there is a band with saline solution. Your surgeon can increase or decrease the size of the bag by injecting or extracting solution.
