The lapband can be a viable option for those who need to lose 100 pounds or more. Sometimes diet and exercise alone are not the answer to successful weight-loss because it forces a person to change their habits. Gastric banding surgery helps in changing bad eating habits because it causes the patient to feel full more quickly – thus reducing their calorie intake.
This is why so many have had success losing weight with the Lap Band and keeping it off for good. Of course everyone has different needs and it is important to ask a lapband doctor if the surgery is right for you.
