Gastric Banding > The Adjustable LapBand System

The LAP-BAND System is the only adjustable system for weight loss surgery. The diameter of the band is adjustable for a customized weight-loss rate. Your individual needs can change as you lose weight. For example, pregnant patients can expand their band to accommodate a growing fetus, while patients who aren't experiencing significant weight loss can have their bands tightened.

The LapBand system has revolutionised weight loss for patients, offering a flexible and adaptable system, tailored to each individuals needs.

View the video below to see how easy the LapBand system is to adjust to give you your weight-loss freedom.

To modify the size of the band, its inner surface can be inflated or deflated with a saline solution. The band is connected by tubing to an access port, which is placed well below the skin during surgery. After the operation, the surgeon can control the amount of saline in the band by entering the port with a fine needle through the skin.
