It is a weight reduction surgery but unlike gastric bypass operation, it’s temporary whereas gastric bypass operation is irreversible and requires more lifestyle modification.
Throughout Lap-Band operation, a bag full of fluid is placed around the stomach, reducing its size and lowering the amount of food it could take in.
Lap-Band surgery is a far easier surgery than the much better known gastric bypass operation. For gastric bypass, of that there are two sorts (Roux-en-Y-gastric bypass and biliopancreatic diversion skip ), the weight reduction surgeon not only lowers the size of their gut but also creates a bypass around the stomach and also a part of the intestine in this more complicated procedure.
Lap-Band surgery process is favored over another permanent surgery. It is less painful than other types of surgery that is why it is more preferable for the weight loss transformation.
