Hi, I am looking into different ways to lose weight. I don't want to have major surgery but want something that will help me lose weight. I'm thinking that the lap band might be suitable for me. Can anyone tell me exactly how it works?

I would suggest meeting with a few Bariatric Surgical teams and discussing the lapband. They are not widely performed anymore because of migration, erosion, herniation and slippage issues. They are mostly removed these days. You can also work with dieticians and endocrinologist to get your weight under control. Good luck 💜

Please please please research lapband ... many docs won’t do it anymore . I just got mine removed it was a miserable 4 years.

you'll be hard pressed to find a surgeon who'll place a lap band anymore. Too many complications with them - a lot of surgeons just stopped doing them. RNY (gastric bypass) and VSG (the sleeve) are the surgeries most people get now.
