LOS ANGELES, June 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- It is difficult nowadays to find a person who hasn't heard of the Lap band procedure, especially considering how there's Lap Band billboards on every highway and radio jingles on every station. However there is a league of bariatric surgery patients who swear by the lesser known Realize Band procedure, which is almost identical to the Lap Band in Los Angeles. Located in Glendale, the Brand Surgical Institute and its team of skilled weight loss surgeons are a premier provider of the Realize Band in Southern California.
Just like the Lap Band, the Realize Band is a minimally invasive weight loss surgery that works by restricting the flow of food into the stomach. The tightness of the stomach band is controlled via a tube and injection port, via which the surgeon can inject a surgical grade saline solution that inflates or deflates the band. One of the reasons some patients prefer the Realize Band over the Lap Band is that the injection port beneath the skin is smaller and less visible from the outside. In addition, the Realize Band comes with a comprehensive online weight loss program, which includes a personal plan, a nutritional plan, a fitness plan and a progress tracker. While the surgery makes the weight loss in Los Angeles process exponentially easier for the patient, adhering to a nutritional, low carb, low cholesterol, and low sugar diet is an integral aspect of a successful surgery.
Patients of this procedure typically experience weight loss at the rate of 1-2 pounds per week, and are thus able to get on a fast track to more healthy and productive lives. Undergoing either the Realize Band or Lap Band has been proven to prevent and relieve many co-morbidities of obesity, including high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, and much more. Often, the biggest source of joy for patients is the increased self confidence that ensues after weight loss.
By undergoing the Realize Band procedure at the Brand Surgical Institute, patients are able to get on the track to live longer, healthier lives. Located in Glendale, the Brand Surgical Institute provides surgical procedures for a variety of patient needs, including cosmetic surgery, tubal reversal, and weight loss surgery.
