In brief: Your choice

It is as safe a weight loss surgery as there is and safer than long term risks of obesity.
Still there are risks including death. Talk w a surgeon for a complete list.

In brief: Safe, consider all

Lap band is safe.
You should consider all of the main options (band, sleeve, bypass). All have certain risks and benefits. This is a good youtube link about the options: http://m.Youtube.Com/?Reload=3&rdm=m2a1hy41d#/watch?V=jlnlc-lppto.
