Convert Lap Band to Sleeve

The Lap Band is considered a very safe and effective weight loss method. Dr. Michael Feiz, M.D., FACS and his team of medical professionals have had enormous success helping patients lose weight with this approach. That said, no single bariatric method is the optimal choice for every patient, and there are various reasons why a patient might be interested in removing the Lap Band and undergoing a sleeve gastrectomy procedure. One reason a patient might want to convert Lap Band to sleeve is a failure to lose weight. This may be because the patient lacks the metabolism needed to take advantage of a restrictive weight loss surgery.

It may also be because the patient is unable to eat in the manner required to fully take advantage of the Lap Band. Another reason a patient might want to convert Lap Band to sleeve is because the patient is actually experiencing physical symptoms as a result of the Lap Band. The Lap Band could slip, leading to an acute condition. The Lap Band could also erode, leading to chronic nausea, vomiting, and infection. These are not common results with the Lap Band, but as with any major surgery, there are potential complications.
The decision to convert Lap Band to sleeveshould be done only in concert with an experienced bariatric surgeon. The surgeons at Dr. Feiz & Associates have performed this revisional bariatric procedure many times, and can help you determine the best course of action to take.
