The lap band system has been well known for changing a patient’s way of living. It has been known that from April 2007 through February 2010, 633 patients underwent laparoscopic band placements. Once a patient commits him/herself to go through this procedure they will be able to notice how their life will begin to change.
In order to begin this journey there’s many things to take into consideration. First is to find out if the lap band system is right for you. In February 2011 he FDA lowered the BMI requirements for patients wanting the lapband. It used to be for patients with a minimum BMI of 40 with existing medical conditions. Now the FDA lowered the BMI requirements for individuals with a BMI of 30-34 and also has any existing condition related to their obesity. The lap band system is recommended for individuals that have been struggling with loosing weight, and have tried dieting and exercising. This system will help you loose the weight and keep it off, not like other diets plans that we may loose a few lbs and gain double the amount right back.
The cost of this procedure depends all in the patient. It depends on the patients healthcare plan, what lap band surgeon and/or hospital they choose, and whether it’s an inpatient or outpatient surgery. There are other options for lap band coverage, as financing as well. If your insurance doesn’t cover the procedure some facilities will be able to provide you with financing with flexible paying plans.
