Single Small Incision Laparoscopy Lap-Band Procedure
The Gastric Banding Medical Group offers our patients the option of a single incision LAP-BAND® Gastric Banding System procedure that requires only a single, small incision through the umbilicus (your belly button). Although our standard multiple incision gastric banding procedure produces minimal scarring for most people, some of our patients prefer the single incision technique to ensure that they are left with no trace of the minimally invasive laparoscopic procedure.*
*Results may vary.
More and more people are turning to the LAP-BAND® Gastric Banding System as their long-term weight loss solution. If diet and exercise are not working for you and you are ready to take control of your health and improve your quality of life, contact the Gastric Banding Medical Group today. A single incision laparoscopic LAP-BAND® procedure may be the answer you’ve been searching for.
Some of the additional advantages of the single incision Laparoscopic LAP-BAND®
- Scar is Hidden in the Umbilicus (belly button)*
- Great Cosmetic Results*
- Less Pain*
- Reduced Risk of Infection*
- Quick Recovery** Complications are possible with any surgery.
The single incision LAP-BAND® procedure costs slightly more than the standard multiple incision procedure but also comes with the additional advantages mentioned above. For most of our patients, the 4 to 5 tiny incisions that accompany the standard procedure are perfectly acceptable. But this particular procedure takes minimally invasive laparoscopy to the next level and ensures that your LAP-BAND® gastric banding procedure will be known only to you.
* Weight loss results may vary from person to person.
