If you are not pleased with your weight, it can be extremely difficult to have the confidence needed to enjoy life to its fullest. If diet and exercise have not helped you obtain the weight you desire, you may benefit from a weight loss procedure in Calgary. At Centric Health Surgical Centre Calgary we provide the gastric band (lap-band) procedure that can help you lose weight and feel great again.
Gastric Band – Lap Band
A gastric band, often called a lap-band, (short for laparoscopic band) is an inflatable device that it placed around the upper portion of the stomach. By slightly constricting the stomach, this device makes it uncomfortable to overeat as the outlet to the stomach is constricted. By decreasing the amount you eat, a gastric band combats obesity and is a weight loss procedure that prevents weight gain. Dedication to consistent exercise can help you finally lose the weight you despise. The lap band surgery is non invasive and is adjustable to increase or decrease the amount of constriction on the stomach.
