LAP-BAND® - The proven tool for weight loss since 1994, with over 850,000 patients worldwide.1

If your weight is affecting your health, you may need extra help.

Losing weight can be difficult and sometimes help is needed, particularly if your weight is starting to affect your health.

If you're struggling to lose weight by other means, have a lot of weight to lose and it's negatively affecting your health then you may need the LAP-BAND® System.

The LAP-BAND® System is a minimally invasive surgical procedure. It ​is intended to be implanted as a long-term device, however if required it can be removed at any time. It doesn’t require stapling, removing or re-routing any part of the stomach. Basically the device is placed around the top of the stomach and works by restricting the expansion of the stomach and making you feel full earlier.

A recent large Australian study from Centre for Obesity Research & Education of Monash University, showed that patients maintained an excess weight loss of 47.1% long-term at 15 years (2), meaning it is likely to help you achieve lasting weight loss.

To see if this is the right approach for you, get in touch to arrange your consultation with our Surgeon (*payment plans are available for approved applicants).
