LifeBand® Makes LAP-BAND® Available to More Patients
LAP-BAND® surgery is a wonderful surgical option for some patients who are struggling to lose weight with diet and exercise alone. Compared to other surgical weight loss options, LAP-BAND® is the safest procedure available and offers adjustability and reversibility without removing or cutting any stomach tissue. Today, patients with as few as 30 to 100 pounds to lose can receive this life-changing surgery as part of the LifeBand® experience in Fairfield County. When you undergo the LifeBand® experience, you will receive comprehensive care and guidance and receive your surgery in an exceptionally clean, private setting.

Why LifeBand® is Different
With the LifeBand® approach, you will receive expert care in a comfortable, exceptionally clean surgical center with a Park Avenue feel. Our patients receive private, personalized care unavailable in a typical hospital setting. With LifeBand®, you receive one-on-one attention before, during, and after surgery.
Patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or above most commonly qualify for insurance coverage of LAP-BAND® surgery. The LifeBand® approach was designed to make LAP-BAND® surgery available to patients who may not meet this requirement. Most LifeBand® candidates have a BMI of 30 to 40.
Your LAP-BAND® Surgery
The actual surgical technique used in the LifeBand® approach is the same as traditional LAP-BAND® surgery. However, instead of being performed in a hospital, your surgery is performed in a private onsite surgical suite that is sterile, modern, and comfortable. It is performed under general anesthesia, administered by a registered anesthesiologist to maintain your absolute comfort during treatment. When you are sedated, your surgeon will create several tiny incisions in your abdomen, using advanced laparoscopic tools to apply the gastric band. Finally, your incisions are closed and you can return home the same day to begin recovering.
Your LifeBand® Results
LAP-BAND® does not offer instant results, nor is it intended to be a substitute for healthy lifestyle choices. Nutrition and exercise counseling are key components to your success as well. With proper diet and exercise, patients can expect to lose 1-3 pounds per week. Typically, the most significant weight loss occurs in the first year or two following surgery, and clinical studies demonstrate that weight loss is maintained long term. Your gastric band can be adjusted depending upon your progress and nutritional requirements, as needed.
LifeBand®: An Affordable Approach to LAP-BAND® Surgery
The LifeBand® procedure is an affordable option starting at just $10,999. In comparison, traditional LAP-BAND® procedures can cost as much as $30,000. If you are considering a LAP-BAND® procedure, we offer several payment options, including CareCredit™ financing so you can find an option that fits within your budget. Our highly trained staff will work with you to help find solutions that help remove financial barriers to your success.
