oBand Centers, Inc. have gained the trust of many obese patients by successfully carrying out LAP-BAND® surgery in Chino Hills, California and other parts of the U.S. This is a minimally invasive surgery that helps severely obese people in gaining long-term weight loss results.
Gastric LAP-BAND® surgery has short and long term results, which vary with each patient. You will find many gastric bypass patients experiencing rapid weight loss in the first 3-6 months after surgery. But the weight loss slows and continues for another 12-18 months, averaging 70 to 75 percent of excess body weight.
For LAP-BAND® surgery the weight loss is generally slower but more gradual as compared to the gastric bypass. The patient will lose up to 55 percent of the excess weight within 18 months after the LAP-BAND® surgery.
The weight loss procedure also demands a team approach for solving the patient's problem. Apart from doing a comprehensive evaluation, it is essential for Bariatric surgeons to provide emotional and psychological support to the patient before & after the surgery.
The main goal of LAP-BAND® surgery is not only weight loss but also the reversal of severe medical conditions. Therefore the patients coming to our centers in Chino Hills, California or other parts of the US are advised to approach a dietician, psychiatrist, surgeons and internist to lose and keep weight off.
Here are some medical benefits of the weight loss surgery:
More than 70 percent of patients will have normal cholesterol level within 2-3 months of the surgery.
Normal Blood Pressure
About 60 percent of high blood pressure patients who underwent the surgery are able to stop medications and have a normal blood pressure within 2/3 months.
It is a proven fact that more than 80 percent of patients of Type-2 diabetes don't require medical treatment within a few weeks after the surgery.
Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease
Patients get relief from the disease within a few weeks of the surgery.
Apart from this, LAP-BAND® surgery also provides you relief from sleep apnea syndrome, asthma, gall bladder disease, low back pain and other problems.
