Lap Band Surgery in Panama for Weight-loss

adjustable gastric band illustrationAdjustable Gastric Banding is commonly referred to as Lap Band. It is an FDA approved minimally invasive surgery that involves applying prosthesis (the lap-band) around the stomach - creating a small gastric pouch - and a calibrated opening to the rest of the stomach.

Adjustable gastric banding helps you achieve long-lasting weight loss by:

  • limiting the amount of food you intake
  • reducing your appetite
  • slowing the digestion process

In general, gastric banding is indicated for people for whom all of the following apply:

  • Body Mass Index (BMI) above 40, or those who are overweight by a 100 pounds (45 kg) or more, or those between 35 and 40 with co-morbidities which may improve with weight loss (high blood pressure, diabetes, sleep apnea, and arthritis)
  • If you are an adult between 18 and 55 years of age
  • Serious attempts to lose weight through changes in the diet or weight-loss drug therapy have failed for more than one year
  • You have been overweight for more than 5 years
  • You are willing to comply with major lifelong changes in your eating habits and lifestyle
  • You do not drink alcohol in excess

The above are general guidelines and the individual must discuss their suitability for the gastric banding procedure with a specialist lap band surgeon.
