Weight Loss Success After LAP-BAND

* Results may vary from person to person.

The road to optimal weight loss and improved health can begin with the LAP-BAND® procedure, which may lead to gradual and safe weight reductions. * We believe the average patient may lose more than 20 pounds throughout the year after surgery, with approximately two-pound decreases each week. These losses generally continue over time, so patients at five years post-surgery generally lose an average of 60% of their excess weight! Lap-Band weight loss occurs because the device limits the amount of food the stomach can hold, creating a feeling of fullness with smaller portions.*

Weight Maintenance.
Once a target weight is reached, many Lap-Band patients maintain their results. During the longest study to date of the procedure, more than 3,000 patients were followed for 10 to 15 years. The study results, published in January, found that a significant number of participants maintained their losses beyond a decade, making the procedure a long-term method for substantial weight loss. *

Lifestyle and Lap-Band.
Though the surgery is integral to this success, behavioral and dietary changes also play a role in dramatic weight loss after Lap-Band. You must be open to following lap band dietary guidelines, such as eating high protein meals and avoiding snacks. Exercising regularly can also encourage the body to shed weight sooner. Your physician will let you know when to start exercising after surgery. You’ll be encouraged to get active at least four times a week, incorporating both cardio and strength training. Fortunately, most of the weight lost following Lap-Band is excess fat. You keep more of the lean muscle you need for a healthy metabolism and fitness.*
