What is lap band surgery?

Lap band surgery is a form of obesity surgery that involves having a band inserted around the stomach to form a small pouch at the top. This restricts the amount of food your stomach can hold. A lap band can be adjusted or removed, but it is a serious surgical procedure that is usually only considered for people who have a lot of weight to lose and have not been able to lose it through measures such as changing their diet and physical activity.
