Lap Band, also known as gastric banding, is a surgical procedure that reduces the size of the stomach by placing a belt around the waist area. The belt is designed from silicone material that can be tightened by adding more saline into the material.
By restricting the amount of food the stomach is able to accept, the body adjusts by sending signals to the brain which in turn tells you that you are full after eating.
After a major weight loss treatment such as Lap Band, the skin may lose its firmness and become susceptible to sagging or drooping. The body may also lose its strength and exhibit a feeble appearance. Body contouring presents excellent post-weight loss solutions that can restore curvature and firmness to your body.
