FREMONT, Calif., May 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- While countless patients have had success losing weight with the Lap Band, it is true that all gastric band patients need regular visits to have their band adjusted in the years following surgery. Just as it was important that patients select an experienced surgeon to perform their Lap Band procedure, they should also go to an experienced facility for their adjustment appointments as well. Thankfully, Elite Surgical Center in Fremont now provides lap band adjustments for patients, whether they received their band at Elite Surgical Center or from elsewhere.
It is important that patients keep up to date on their adjustments both for the safety and the efficacy of the band. From a safety standpoint, making sure your band is filled with the proper amount of saline can prevent the band from eroding into the stomach, which can occur from a band that is too tight, or from slipping, which is common if the band is not tight enough. Also, from the standpoint of successful weight loss, having a band that is too loose may result in a failure to control portion size and hunger.
Therefore, it is important for all gastric band patients to schedule regular appointments to have their band adjusted so these problems can be prevented. To schedule a lap band adjustment with Elite Surgical Center today, you can call (510) 556-5000 or visit their website for more information.
