How does Laproscopic Banding help with weight loss ?
Without any stomach cutting or stapling, the Laproscopic Banding System reduces your stomach’s capacity, restricting the amount of food you are able to eat at one time. Plus, you feel full faster and stay full longer, so you wind up eating less.
What are the advantages of Laproscopic Banding ?
With Laproscopic Banding Surgery there is no stomach cutting or intestinal rerouting. It is reversible, adjustable, and less invasive. The recovery is usually quicker, the hospital stay is usually shorter, and there is a lower chance of malnutrition. Laproscopic Banding patients do not get dumping syndrome. The Laproscopic Banding procedure also has the lowest complication rate and lowest mortality rate of weight loss surgeries.
How fast will I lose weight with Laproscopic Banding ?
Your rate of weight loss will be largely dependent on your compliance with the Laproscopic Banding guidelines, including: eat only three small healthy meals a day, no snacking between meals, drink only low-calorie beverages, exercise 30 minutes a day. Although your results may vary, the average Laproscopic Banding patient loses about 1-1/2 to 2 pounds per week and about 50% of his or her excess weight within the first year of surgery.
Will I be able to eat regular food after Laproscopic Banding ?
After the recovery period you will be able to eat regular food, but you will want to make sure you plan a healthy and balanced diet and avoid high-fat and high-calorie foods. There will also be some foods you will want to avoid because they tend to cause problems with Laproscopic Banding patients, such as: fibrous foods, some breads, pasta, dried fruit, nuts, coconut, popcorn, and fried foods.
Is Laproscopic Banding covered under Medical insurance ?
Unfortunately Laproscopic Banding is not cover under any medical/health insurances.
Is the Laproscopic Banding System Permanent or It can be removed ?
The Laproscopic Banding System is a long-term surgical implant. Using periodic adjustments as you lose weight, the Laproscopic Banding System allows for gradual, steady, long-term weight loss. The goal is to keep your adjustment level, and diet and activity levels balanced and stable.If the band needs to be removed, generally it can be removed laparoscopically. Surgeons report that the stomach generally returns to its original shape once the band is removed. After the removal, though, you may return to your original weight, or even gain more.
