Can I Open My LAP-BAND For a Special Meal or Occasion?

Answer: 

Although it may seem tempting and relatively easy, you should never open your LAP-BAND so that you can gorge at a special meal, occasion or event. It is possible however, to have the fluid in the LAP-BAND system emptied if there is an underlying medical condition that calls for the band to be loosened. A good example would be during pregnancy where a mother might need additional nutrition for her developing baby.
