Frequently Asked Questions

It is important to understand that Lapband surgery, or Laparoscopic Gastric Banding, is a type of bariatric surgical procedure. This particular type of weight loss surgery involves placing an adjustable silicone band around the upper part of the stomach in order to reduce hunger and food consumption. Lapband surgery is a popular option for those struggling with obesity and who have been unsuccessful in losing weight through diet and exercise alone.

In rare cases, Lapband surgery patients may need to have their Lapband device removed. Lapbands are designed to be adjustable and can typically be loosened or tightened without the need for removal. If a Lapband is not providing enough weight loss or if a patient experiences complications or side effects, Lapband removal may be recommended. Lapbands should not be left in place forever and will likely have to be removed at some point.

Primewest does indeed cover Lapband surgery. Lapband is a gastric banding procedure that reduces the stomach’s capacity, resulting in weight loss. Lapband works by placing an adjustable silicone band around the upper portion of the stomach to create a small pouch with a narrow opening leading to the rest of the stomach. This band can be adjusted over time to control how much food can enter the stomach and how quickly it empties, allowing for gradual and consistent weight loss over time.
