Can people see the LAP-BAND under my skin?

Answer: 

Your doctor places the LAP-BAND access port beneath your skin and fat, and over your abdominal muscle and fascia. The port is not typically visible under the skin or clothing, but can be found by palpation of the skin over it. Therefore, it is unlikely that other people will see or recognize that you have an adjustment port. LAP-BAND fills and adjustments are made to the access port with a small needle. This process helps to keep the port site discreet.
