LAP-BAND surgery is an advanced procedure that involves inserting a band like device around the upper part of the patient's stomach. By doing this, the stomach's pouch reduces in size to accommodate a reasonable intake of calories. As a result of the band, the stomach pouch is filled faster and patients feel fuller when they eat. Many patients who visit Dr. Holup opt for LAP-BAND procedures because the find it less evasive than gastric bypass surgery. In the relatively short time following the LAP-BAND procedure patients experience a sensation of fullness when consuming smaller portions of food. This results in a faster rate of weight loss.
