Restrict how much you can consume

If you are trying to loss weight, take a look at the lapband surgery. This procedure squeezes closed the upper part of the stomach with an inflatable belt. Patients quickly feel full after eating a little.

Called the Lap-Band adjustable gastric banding system, the device consists of a silicone band that cuffs tightly around the upper stomach to create a small gastric pouch. The belt restricts how much a patient can consume.

Lap band surgery requires no cutting of the stomach. In fact, this weight loss surgery moves rather quickly. Small incisions are made into the skin, and then the lap bands are placed into the body through the incision. The procedure only takes around an hour and the patient get to return home the following day.
