Lap-Band Before and After Photos

Actual Lap-Band Surgery Patients



The cost of lap band surgery has decreased substantially over the last two years.   This combined with the fact that patient outcomes have continued to improve.  This could be one a great opportunity for you to take advantage of this procedure and accomplish your personal weight loss goals as well as improve your overall physical and mental health.

According to the National Institute of Health: "Lap band surgery patients show a dramatic and sustained improvement in the quality of their lives beyond the extent of their weight loss".    Multiple studies continue to prove that that patients who have undergone bariatric surgery have greater earning potential and see less discrimination in the current job market.   There are now many reasons to consider lap band surgery that are beyond the immediate health benefits.

Lap Band Patient-1 Before



LAP-BANDŽ Patient Amanda lost 149 lbs:
I tried every weight-loss program that you can imagine. Each time I would lose weight but I'd always gain it back - plus more. After years of yo-yo dieting I topped the scales at 304 lbs and had given up on losing weight. Then I learned about the LAP-BAND System and I knew I had another option. I could have had Gastric By-Pass, but from my nursing experience I saw first hand the risks associated with it. I knew the LAP-BAND was the choice for me. Since my surgery I have gone from a size 30 to a size 14. I've lost the weight and I'm keeping it off! I'm in control of my life and I look like a whole new person.

LAP-BANDŽ Patient Robin, lost 150 lbs:
"I felt the gastric bypass was too drastic a surgery but I knew I needed to do 'something'. When I heard about the LAP BAND, I knew immediately it was perfect. I knew that the LAP BAND would help me lose weight with reduced food intake without the starvation and depravation. If I got pregnant or got ill, all the fluid could be removed and I could have a temporary 'regular' stomach again. It seemed like a no-brainer! Now, three and a half years after LAP-BAND surgery, I feel like a totally transformed person! The LAP-BAND changed my life!"

Lap Band Patient 3 - Before



LAP-BANDŽ Patient Tess, lost 161 lbs:
The stigma that comes with being overweight in our society is very sad but very real; I felt that stigma every day. But my self-image wasn't the only thing suffering - so was my health. I was developing high blood pressure, sleep apnea and was practically immobile. I chose the LAP-BAND because it was the least invasive surgery and it was a tool that would teach me to eat well and take better care of myself. I needed to lose the weight slowly and learn to make lifestyle changes. I've lost 159 pounds, have no standing health problems and am even training for a marathon.

LAP-BANDŽ Surgeon and Patient Dr. G., lost 105 lbs:
"I have been a general surgeon for 20 years and started doing LAP BAND surgery around the same time that I got my own LAP BAND - in October 2002. After this minimally invasive procedure, I was back at home the next day and was able to resume operating 2 days later. It is absolutely magnificent to see a patient taking six pills a day, and, within a matter of a couple of weeks, see them come back to the office taking no medication. It is the first time in my medical career as a surgeon where I can truly cure a chronic medical disease."

LAP-BANDŽ Patient Jodi, lost 115 lbs:
Life is hard enough with the added pressure of being overweight. Two years and 115 lbs ago I had reached my breaking point. I chose the LAP BAND System because it was a non-invasive, low risk procedure with minimal recover time. I had my surgery on Friday, went home the next day and was back to work Monday morning. I have maintained my goal weight for two years now and my life has changed in such a positive way. I feel more energetic, younger and much happier. I exercise, go boating, skiing, snorkeling, wear a bikini and do many things I could not dream of doing before I had the LAP BAND.

Lap Band Patient 6 - Before



LAP BANDŽ Patient Dan, lost 170 lbs:

Growing up my activities kept me in shape and my weight down. When I got out of school I got out of sports, other priorities took over my life and the weight piled on. I tried all the fad diets, most with little or no success. I then I learned about the Lap-Band System. At first I had trouble believing that with the Lap-Band the weight would not come back, that it was not a diet but a tool, and that I was in total control of my weight loss. I've hit my goal and am down 170 lbs! The LAP BAND is still there to help me maintain my weight loss for the rest of my life. As a bonus, all the sports and family activities I had missed out on for over 20 years are back within my reach and there is nothing I can't experience with my children. The Lap-Band has given me my life back. It had been so long I had almost forgotten.

Lap Band Patient 7 - Before



LAP BANDŽ Patient Brooke, lost 160 lbs:
"I was tired of living life at 292 lbs. I had success with other weight-loss methods, but none of them worked long-term. I have a son whom I did not want to embarrass one day. I wanted to be around to enjoy him growing up, to see him graduate and get married. I wanted to be healthy, and I wanted the woman on the outside to match the one on the inside. As a nurse I researched as much as I could. I loved the fact that the LAP-BAND was the safest surgery available and that it was adjustable. I have lost 160 lbs since my surgery, and I have to admit' I really love the way I look as well!"

Lap Band Patient 8 - Before



LAP BANDŽ Patient Lisa, lost 140 lbs:
"I struggled with my weight my entire life. I tried everything, every diet and exercise combination imaginable, but had managed to diet my way to over 300 lbs. At that weight, life was a struggle. Even though I was young, I had high blood pressure, was borderline diabetic and suffered from constant lower back pain.
I discovered the LAP BAND on the Internet, attended a patient seminar and immediately knew it was right for me. Since my surgery, I no longer have high blood pressure, high blood sugar levels or lower back pain. The LAP BAND has been the tool that I needed to finally be successful at losing weight!"
