How Careful Do I Have To Be With The Access Port That Is Under My Skin?


The LAP-BAND’s access port is placed securely beneath your skin where it is safe from accidental damage and won't hinder your movement in any way. In fact, the only thing you are likely to experience will be a mild sensation from the port when you visit your surgeon for a LAP-BAND adjustment or fill. If you do feel any form of discomfort or pain from the access port, make sure to tell your surgeon as soon as possible.
