Love Lap Band offers gastric lap band surgery for overweight individuals.
Obesity can carry devastating emotional and psychological effects, such as low self esteem, lack of confidence, and depression. But it can also cause major health problems, which are some times life-threatening. Some of the most common are:
- Sleep Apnea
- Gallbladder Disease and Gallstones
- Heart Problems
- Osteoarthritis / Joint Pain (particularly in the knees)
- High Blood Pressure
The Lap Band and gastric banding surgery can help patients to relieve these symptoms by losing weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. While it may not be a type 2 diabetes cure, lap band surgery has been shown to significantly help people who have type 2 diabetes. If you have one or more of these symptoms, your health insurance may cover the Lapband surgery completely.
Traditional weight-loss programs consist of intense exercise regimes and unnatural diet programs. However, the Lap Band system does not involve any exercise, special diets or weight-loss pills. Patients are satisfied with smaller portions of their favorite foods, and take in much fewer calories, which allows them to shed pounds. And there are few if any lap band risks. Recovery is relatively quick, with most patients returning to work and normal activities within 4-5 days. Side effects after the surgery or lap band revision may include vomiting (if food is consumed too quickly), constipation, and heartburn.
