  • How it aids in weight loss?
  • In lap band surgery the surgeon places a band
    around upper part of stomach and separates it
    from lower part.
  • It acts as a small pouch and whenever you eat the
    pouch fills up quickly and you will feel full
    after having little food.
  • Since eating too much and snacking can cause
    vomiting this helps the patient to change their
    eating behavior.
