Can I still become pregnant following Lap Band surgery?

After LAP-BAND Surgery LAP-BAND Surgery Information


Using the LAP-BAND for weight loss may increase your chance of becoming pregnant because as you lose weight, your menstrual cycle will become more regular. The LAP-BAND is also adjustable, meaning that it can be loosened if more nutrition is needed during pregnancy and then re-tightened after the pregnancy to continue losing weight. As such, there is no need to remove the LAP-BAND after pregnancy.

To learn more about LAP-BAND and pregnancy, please call LAP-BAND VIP at 1-855-690-0560, and a representative will be more than happy to address any additional questions you may have.
