LAP-BAND System adjustable gastric banding procedu
What will happen if I become ill after LAP-BAND® System surgery?
One of the major advantages of the LAP–BAND® System is that it can be adjusted. If your illness requires you to eat more, the band can be loosened by removing saline from it. When you have recovered from your illness and want to lose weight again, the band can be tightened by increasing the amount of saline. If the band cannot be loosened enough, it may have to be removed.
