Lap band surgery, also known as adjustable gastric band, adjustable laparoscopic banding, Lap-Band®, and Realize® Band, is a restrictive weight loss surgery.
It promotes weight loss by significantly decreasing the amount of food comfortably eaten at each meal and maintains a sense of fullness for a longer time after meals. This allows you to eat less throughout the day and lose weight.
Lap band surgery is a safe procedure when performed by specially-trained and experienced surgeons. Barix offers a comprehensive program including consultation with highly skilled surgeons, help with insurance approval, pre-surgery testing, specially-trained surgical staff and state-of the-art equipment, and a post-surgery program to help you to adapt lifestyle habits that support a healthy weight. The Barix Clinics program includes nutritional counseling, support groups, online forums, and an extensive lifestyle book —The Guide to Good Health.
