Monitoring: All the bariatric surgeries need monitoring, especially during the first year. Check in with your surgery team, they often have classes and support groups. Nutrition, exercise and tracking your labs and weight is important for long term success. Be well.

Patient-dependent.: The Lap Band is very dependent on your efforts at weight loss. It's an assistive device. It won't make the weight magically disappear from your body. It'll help,you lose weight, about 70 pounds on average, in conjunction with a prudent diet and exercise regimen.
