LAP-BAND Surgery in Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Orange County California
You already know that obesity is a serious medical condition that leads to heart disease, diabetes, and other life-threatening conditions. You know that you need to do something about your weight if you want to be there for your children and grandchildren in the future. You have probably tried plenty of times to lose weight, but for some people, diet and exercise alone are not enough to lose pounds and keep them off.
It’s time to look for a real, permanent weight loss solution. If you are seriously considering weight loss surgery and are already researching the various bariatric surgery procedures, you’ve already taken a step in the right direction. LAP-BAND® weight loss surgery has already helped thousands of people finally take control of their weight, and you could be the next bariatric surgery success story.
LAP-BAND® — The Least Invasive Option for Weight Loss Surgery
All of the bariatric procedures performed by our board-certified LA bariatric surgeon Dr. Shyam Dahiya can help you triumph over obesity with hard work and dedication. Compared to other bariatric surgery procedures like gastric bypass surgery, however, LAP-BAND® surgery is the least invasive option.
The LAP-BAND® system is an adjustable, removable gastric band that cinches around your stomach, creating a small pouch at the top. With the LAP-BAND® device in place, the pouch fills up quickly after eating just a small amount of food, making you feel satisfied. After your operation, your LAP-BAND® surgeon Dr. Dahiya can adjust the amount of saline in the gastric band without additional surgery, making it tighter or looser as needed. The LAP-BAND® system can even be adjusted to allow for a healthy pregnancy, and unlike gastric bypass surgery, the LAP-BAND® procedure is fully reversible.
LAP-BAND® surgery does not involve re-routing your digestive tract, which makes LAP-BAND® less painful than other bariatric procedures and allows for a faster recovery. Dr. Dahiya performs LAP-BAND® surgery through just a single, small incision using the state-of-the-art SPIDER® Surgical System, which also speeds up your recovery and reduces the risk of infection and other complications.
