How often do I need to visit my surgeon after LAP-BAND surgery?


You should visit your LAP-BAND surgeon every 4-6 weeks for the first year following your LAP-BAND surgery. During these appointments, your surgeon will make LAP-BAND adjustments or fills to keep you in a “green zone”, where your food intake is reduced to help you lose the most weight possible without making you feel hungry between meals. During the appointment your LAP-BAND surgeon will also check that all of your nutritional needs are being met, and offer any additional support you may need in realizing your weight loss goals.
