Lap Band Surgery Dallas

  1. 1. Lap-Band Surgery<br />Dallas / Decatur weight loss surgeon<br />Dr. Scott Stowers<br />
  2. 2. What is Lap-Band Surgery?<br />Weight Loss surgeons will insert a small adjustable band around the stomach to reduce the size of the stomach.<br />Lap-Band does NOT include stapling or removal of parts of the stomach or intestines<br />
  3. 3. Benefits of Lap-Band Surgery<br />Achieve needed weight loss<br />Studies suggest that one year after Lap-Band surgery, the average patient loses approximately 45% of his or her excess body weight.<br />Improves obesity-related health problems<br />High blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, heart disease, diabetes, sleep apnea and degenerative joint disease<br />
  4. 4. Benefits of Lap-Band Surgery (cont.)<br />Does not require re-routing of the stomach or intestines<br />This often makes the recovery time shorter and easier<br />The band can be adjusted or removed, depending on the patient’s needs<br />In general, minimally-invasive laparoscopic procedures cause minimal scarring, pose less of a risk than more invasive techniques, and promote a quicker, easier recovery.<br />
  5. 5. Lap-Band Surgery Risks<br />Although Lap-Band surgery is minimally invasive, it does have risks:<br />Slippage<br />Stomach wall deterioration<br />Formation of ulcers<br />Vomiting<br />Indigestion<br />Bloating<br />Patients are not guaranteed any particular weight loss amount after Lap-Band surgery, particularly if he or she does not adhere to guidelines for life after weight loss surgery.<br />
  6. 6. Lap-Band Surgery Procedure<br />The surgeon makes a small incision into the abdomen, through which he inserts the gastric band.<br />He then maneuvers the band into place (around the upper part of the stomach).<br />The band contains an inflatable tube that the surgeon fills with saline solution.<br />The tube expands and constricts the gastric band, which in turn constricts the stomach.<br />Finally, the surgeon completes the procedure by suturing the incisions closed. <br />
  7. 7. Are you a candidate for Lap-Band Surgery?<br />If you are an appropriate candidate for obesity surgery the LAP-BAND® System surgery is one of several options available for your consideration. Contact Bariatric Solutions to schedule a consultation to discuss the procedure and whether its benefits and risks make it the right treatment for you. <br />
