Lap band adjustments are done by a lap band surgeon. The surgeon will locate the port by feeling on the patient’s abdomen. Once the port is located, the doctor may choose to do a simple adjustment, or do an adjustment by placing the patient in front of an X-ray machine and watching how liquid flows right after the adjustment. The doctor will inject or remove saline from the lap band port in order to inflate or deflate band and adjust it to patients needs.
