During the lap band surgery process, a small band is positioned around the upper part of the stomach, creating a small compartment. As with stomach stapling, the undersized compartment means that you experience fullness quicker. The band can be customized in size by inflating or deflating the band. This allows the doctor to regulate the size of the opening between the compartment and the stomach. The average lap band surgery cost is $2500 and can run up to $5000.

Lap band surgery can be performed by creating a large incision in the abdomen or by making a number of tiny incisions and using small instruments and a camera to guide the surgery.

In order to be recommended for l ap band surgery , your body mass index must be at least 40 or greater. Lap band is also approved when your BMI is 35 or higher and you have a life-threatening or disabling circumstance that is directly linked to your weight.
