Get the Lap Band Results You’ve Always Hoped For at BHP!
Lap band surgery at Beverly Hills Physicians involves the strategic placing of an adjustable silicone gastric band around the uppermost part of the stomach, making the small portion above the band effectively the “new” stomach. This stomach has a very small capacity, about one-tenth of the previous capacity, and the patient gradually loses weight until they reach their goal weight by coming in to the BHP offices for a series of follow up appointments to get down to check their progress. Our compassionate, board-certified lap band Beverly Hills doctors help patients through the weight loss journey from their very first consultation through the surgery itself and all the way through aftercare.
Of course, Beverly Hills Physicians is a full-service physician network providing many forms of bariatric surgery, including gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy surgery. Sleeve gastrectomy surgery differs from lap band surgery, and some prefer lap band surgery because it is the least invasive of surgical weight loss procedures and has the lowest complication rate. Whichever procedure you choose, if you want a removable, adjustable surgery, you might be a good candidate for the lap band surgery. During you initial consultation, your Beverly Hills Physicians bariatric surgeon will guide you through the process of determining the pros and cons of each surgery and coming to the conclusion of which is best for you.
