When it comes to weight loss procedures, many wonder about the strengths and advantages between the Lap band vs. sleeve operations. Both are popular choices of potential patients looking into weight loss procedures. Though the basis of these operations are the same and have the same desired end results, they are performed differently. A Lap Band is a temporary procedure that that involves a band that is placed around the stomach which restricts the patient’s food intake. The band can be adjusted or removed. A gastric sleeve on the other hand is a permanent procedure in which the a portion of the stomach is removed and reshaped through lap band revision surgery. After both of these procedures, the patient will only consume a small amount of food and begin to lose weight gradually over the course of several months.
Because weight loss surgery isn’t a one size fits all procedure, Dr. Feiz and Associates will help you determine if you’re eligible and which procedure to pursue.
