How do the weight–loss results with the LAP–BAND® System compare to those with the gastric bypass procedures?

At five years, however, many LAP–BAND® System patients have achieved weight loss comparable to that of gastric bypass patients. Focus on long–term weight loss and remember that it is important to lose weight gradually while reducing obesity–related risks and improving your health.
