Laparoscopic gastric band surgery (gastric banding) commonly referred to as Gastric Lap Band is another form of restrictive weight loss surgery
The gastric banding surgery is usually very effective for younger patients (18 to 36) since their basal metabolic rate is faster than older patients. Women do better with gastric band than men according to recent studies. And patients who need to lose approximately 50 to 75 pounds are good candidates for the gastric Band.
Patients who are older and have a higher BMI who need to lose 75 to 300 pounds will do better with sleeve or gastric bypass.
The lap band patient, requires regular physician visits the first few month after surgery for adjustments. Adjustments are done in the office setting and are when the surgeon will add or remove saline from the band. Adjustments do not require surgery and are simple injections. However, remember that Lap band patients have to work harder to lose the excess weight compared to patients undergoing lap sleeve and lap gastric bypass.
Patients with the gastric band lose approximately 35% to 45% of their excess body weight.
