1. Lap Band Surgery Explained
A device, or band is inserted around the top portion of the stomach, creating a small pouch. Basically, lap band surgery reduces the patient’s stomach capacity. Long term weight loss can be achieved as the surgery introduces an earlier feeling of satiety every time the patient consumes food. The band can be tightened or loosened to control the patient’s level of satiety and it is also reversible and can be removed at any time. The insertion and removal of the device will be done through what is known as a "keyhole" surgery, which reduces scaring and lessens recovery time.
2. Benefits of Lap Band Surgery
All patients who undergo this form of surgery will notice very visible and long-term weight loss results. In addition to that, patients will also be less at risk when it comes to obesity-related diseases such as stroke, heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, asthma and many more. Former patients of Dr. Naim have testified that they feel like brand new people. The intense and rapid weight loss has enabled them to experience life like they have never experienced before. Exercise and a healthy diet will ensure that patients never have to worry about ‘fat days’ ever again. Patients are encouraged to eat more greens and to cut down on fast food. Dr. Naim also recommends patients perform light exercise like yoga, skipping, or jogging to tone and firm up their brand new bodies.
3. Lap Band Surgery is Not for Everyone
Dr. Naim wishes to make it very clear that bariatric surgery is not for everyone. Ideally, patients have to be more than 30 pounds overweight and suffer from one or more obesity-related diseases. Anything less than that can be combated with a proper diet and regular exercise. However, Dr. Naim encourages potential patients to get in touch with him to discuss this issue in person as every patient is different and medical reviews have to be made on a case-by-case basis. To tie in with this, The Lap Band Center is offering first-time patients a free consultation to learn more about lap band surgery.
