Mumbai, India (PressExposure) January 07, 2010 -- Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding, more commonly called Lap Band Surgery, is the easiest and the most reliable method to reduce weight. It is a definite means to become fit from fat.
Statistics have shown that Lap band is one of the fastest growing forms of bariatric (weight loss) surgeries. As on June 2008, over 450,000 people worldwide have undergone the lap band procedure.
Lap band surgery is a minimally invasive weight loss surgery. The procedure involves insertion of a silicone band lined with an inflatable balloon around the top portion of the stomach to reduce the volume of the stomach. This balloon is connected to a small reservoir that is placed under the skin of the abdomen through which the diameter of the band can be adjusted.
Inflation of the balloon functionally tightens the band and thereby increases weight loss, while deflation of the balloon loosens the band and reduces weight loss. This has the effect of dividing the stomach into two sections. This results in the ability to control your hunger and achieve a "feeling of fullness," or satiety. Thus, you eat much less and should feel full sooner, which in turn leads to significant weight loss.
The various benefits of Lap band procedure are: â¢ No cutting or stapling of the stomach â¢ Short hospital stay â¢ Quick recovery â¢ Adjustable without additional surgery (because no intestines are bypassed) â¢ Fully reversible: stomach returns to normal if the band is removed
The best part of the procedure is that it has much lesser side effects, as compared to other bariatric procedures. The additional benefits of the procedure are: â¢ Significantly lower mortality risk than other obesity surgery procedures â¢ Low risk of nutritional deficiencies associated with gastric bypass â¢ Reduced risk of hair loss â¢ No âdumping syndromeâ related to dietary intake restrictions
