Dr. Josh Roller, Dr. Yong Kwon, Dr. Jaime Dutton, and Dr. Jessica Pries perform the Lap-Band procedure laparoscopically, and it’s the least invasive of all the surgical weight loss procedures because it doesn’t require division or removal of any part of the stomach or intestines.
How does Lap-Band work?
Lap-Band also increases the time it takes for your stomach to empty, making you feel full longer and reducing the sensation of hunger. The band can be adjusted (made tighter/smaller) by filling it with saline through a port located just underneath the skin. The concept is to create the sensation of fullness after only a very small meal.
