Lap Band by JourneyLite

What is lap-band?

The lap-band weight loss surgery involves placing an adjustable silicone band around the top part of the stomach to create a small upper stomach which restricts the amount of food eaten at one time. All food must pass through the narrowed outlet created by the band before reaching the lower stomach, so patients have a feeling of fullness after eating a small amount of solid food.

Obesity is an extremely common condition that is estimated to affect more than 34 million Americans just like you. You are not alone and thanks to JourneyLite!

It reduces the stomach capacity and restricts the amount of food that can be consumed at one time.
