The FDA has expanded the indication of the Lap-Band™ system to patients with a BMI as low as 30. This means that patients looking to lose 30+ lbs can now seek the assistance of the Lap-Band Lap-Band™ system in their weight loss journey. If you have tried Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, Nutrisystem but can’t lose the weight or keep regaining the weight, let us tell you how the Lap-Band™ system can help.
So, what does the Lap-Band™ system actually do? It’s really a simple concept. The Lap-Band™ system reduces your stomach’s capacity, restricting the amount of food you are able to eat in one sitting. This way, you will feel satiated sooner and for a longer period of time. That leads to a gradual weight loss that can be kept of easier.
The Lap-Band™ system may be right for you if:
- Your BMI is at least 30kg/m2
- You are at least 18 years old
- Your serious weight loss attempts have had only short-term success
- You are not currently suffering from any other disease that may have caused your excess weight
- You are not currently pregnant
