Weight Loss Options: LAP-BAND®

With all of the stress and pressures of being a family caregiver, it can sometimes be difficult to loose excess weight that has been gained over the course of the years. I know, I have been struggling with my own weight for some time now. While I have a significant amount of weight to loose, I thankfully do not have so much that I have ever considered surgical alternatives for losing the weight.

There are many, however, who take the course of surgical weight loss and for any of those the lapband system for laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding is often the chosen method. With the LAP-BAND® System a doctor surgically inserts an inflatable adjustable gastric band through small incisions. The band is positioned around the upper portion of the stomach to create a pouch and thereby reduce the amount required to make you feel full.

If you are considering the use of laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding to assist you in significant weight loss you should research the procedure through sites such as the Journey Lite website ( and consult your doctor to find out if the LAP-BAND® procedure is right for you.
