Los Angeles Lap Band Surgery with BHP Could be the Start of a New Life
At Beverly Hills Physicians, we have a successful weight loss program that many grateful patients have been a part of when they undergo weight loss surgery. Although have bariatric surgery is a step in the right direction, it takes a great deal of dedication to the weight loss program to achieve success. That’s why your Los Angeles lap band team will be with you every step of the way, from the first consultation with a bariatric surgeon through the procedure itself and all the way through aftercare.
Getting the lap band in Beverly Hills or one of BHP’s many locations in Southern California entails having a surgical procedure to implant a device that constricts the stomach. The band device creates a small stomach pouch, and this pouch is the capacity of the “new” stomach, and the process of digestion is slowed because food must travel through the site of the band, called a stoma, to reach the rest of the digestive system. Other than implanting this band around the stomach, which is attached to a port so it can be tightened or loosened at follow-up appointments, no further alterations are made to the digestive system. In fact, patients continue to digest nutrients and calories the same way as before, albeit in small quantities.
