Several surgical procedures have been introduced in the field of weight loss surgery, and because of availability of many options in weight loss surgery it is really difficult to choose the best possible surgical procedure for weight loss surgery. One of the preferable weight loss surgery procedures is Lap-Band System Surgery. The Lap-Band System is not dangerous but very effective procedure in weight loss. Lap band surgery system is proposed to be recommended for those patients who want to lose weight between 50 - 100 pounds. The Lap-Band limits food intake, and coupled with healthy lifestyle changes, allows patients to stop struggling with their weight issues. The procedure of Lap-Band surgery is performed laparoscopically, it is a less risky surgery system and for lap band system of surgery patients spend less than 24 hours in the hospital. After Lap band surgery procedure, usually patients have no need to take rest more than a week. However, patient can go on work within a week and can resume exercise within a month to six weeks. If there may occur any surgical complications, recovery may take a little longer. QUANTUM OF WEIGHT LOSS? Occasionally it is asked as to how much weight loss could be rendered with the procedure of Lap Band system. It is not an easy job to assess the time and tide of actual weight loss. It is very difficult to calculate and define any time limit and quantum of weight loss during the shortest possible time limit. However, it is pertinent to say that it differs and vary from patient to patient keeping in view his quantum of overweight which may have hampered and/or harmed his digestion and metabolic system. Further, it also depends on person to person or say patient to patient as to how far he cooperates with the surgeon attending to him for treatment and how far he extends his cooperation to his doctor’s advice, if he is asked to switch over to some beneficial thing and shirk his bad habit involved in gaining undue weight. It is very essential ingredient in this treatment. The Lap-Band system placed in the right direction and position and the patient is ought to change his eating habits and is ready to change and improve his life style and eating habits, weight loss can be calculated about two to three pounds per week but the average can be assessed as one pound per week on an average. After the Lap Band surgery application patient can expect weight loss to taper. Lap Band Surgery should not be thought of playing any miracle for a dramatic weight loss quickly but it works slow and steadily as with rapid weight loss many health hazards and risks are involved. However, with the Lap Band procedure the patients can reap the vast benefit of resolution of many health problems like hypertension, diabetes etc which may often crop up and develop due to obesity. Lap-Band Myths The internet is a great place to get information, but it can also be a place where there are a lot of myths propagated. The Lap-Band is no Etum ofxception. Here are a few of my favorites: (a) You can drink coffee with the band. You can drink coffee or tea with the band. However, please don`t drink a lot of liquid calories, so restrict or avoid the high calorie Starbuck`s drinks. Only give patients either tea or coffee. (b) The band should not be tight enough to prevent you from eating too much food. Restriction of any purpose is not the purpose of Lap Band but its process is suppression of appetite. The Lap Band only limits what you eat as per stomach limitation and does not let you hungry so you can eat as much as you can, which function lap band facilitates for you. (c) The Lap-Band does not cause reflux and heartburn. The band is a barrier against reflux, heartburn, and night cough. If you develop any of those, then you have too tight a band, or have developed a band slip. Anytime you get reflux or heartburn contact your surgeon immediately. There are a lot of myths surrounding the Lap-Band, but the band is simply a tool. Learn to use the tool and it will serve you well.

Lap Band System a better procedure in Weight Loss Surgery In today’s mechanical world due to unnatural life style, lack of daily walk and exercise the body becomes gigantic and looks awkward and gains abnormally high weight which is hazardous and harmful to life. To come over this situation people adopt many ways for weight loss so as to look slim and smart. High weight may help in creation and/or increase in many diseases like rise in blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, etc many clinics have come into existence claiming to reduce weight and make the body slim and smart but these are only the loud claims. However, there are many ways and means for losing weight fast but these require perseverance and regularity. In the first instance it is very important that one should ensure daily 50exercise and walking fast. In addition to this one should develop a program of daily food intake i.e. to take meal in small quantities divided by different times. Breakfast is said to be the most important meal. It is proven fact that eating a low fat breakfast helps a great deal in weight loss. Thereafter one may adopt the following schedule of taking small meals: Three hours after breakfast to have another small meal, Later after three hours, one can have a Lunch of a small quantity of meal, Three hour after this have an afternoon snack and three hours later have a small supper, Three hour thereafter one can have another small snack. These small meals should be about 300 to 400 calories according to your daily requirements Taking small meals will not only keep energy level up but will also ensure keeping metabolism going all day long. This along with exercise and jogging is also effective in reducing weight. There are two most effective ways of bringing weight loss fast – one is Gastric bypass and the other is Lap Band. Gastric bypass – The gastric bypass requires stapling of the stomach to reduce it to smaller and restricted food intake. Further, the small intestine is rerouted to bypass part of the small intestine, thereby limiting the absorption of nutrients during digestion. The combination of reduced appetite and restricted absorption will help in weight loss. Gastric bypass surgery could involve some additional expenses later on as it has been experienced by many people of regaining weight and stretching out of the stomach pouch. Whosoever regains weight following gastric bypass, will opt for a secondary procedure of StomaphyX. This will be an additional expense. However, with lap band no secondary procedure will be needed. Lap Band Surgery System: The Lap Band Surgery System does not require any secondary procedure and/or any additional expenses as in case of gastric bypass. Lap Band Surgery System is the most effective and easy process (Surgery) for weight loss fast. There many people prefer to undergo this procedure to overcome the severe problems of overweight. Lap Band System is a process (Syrgery) in which a band device known as Lap Band is placed around the upper stomach. The Lap band system reduces the stomach in size and in this way, it limits the patient’s food intake which will help in weight loss fast. Lap Band procedure has been considered to be the safest and most economical way of weight loss. 1. SLOW AND STEADY WEIGHT LOSS: In Lap Band procedure slower and steadier weight loss is ensured, which is mostly recommended by the professionals in the interest of long term success of approach to health. 2. SIMPLE PROCEDURE: This is the most simplest process of surgery and takes hardly about one hour to perform. This can also be performed as an outpatient procedure. 3. LESS INVASIVE: It is placed using laparoscopic surgery, which requires small incisions and the use of cameras. 4. ADJUSTABLE AND MORE CONTROL: Lap Band device being adjustable, it becomes easier for patient and the surgeon to maintain more control over the weight loss. The device, keeping in view the progress in weight loss and according to the nutritional needs of the patient, can be inflated or deflated. 5.
