Can The LAP-BAND Be Removed?

After LAP-BAND Surgery LAP-BAND Surgery Information


While the LAP-BAND system is not meant to be removed, it can be removed laparoscopically if there is a need. In fact, reports from surgeons indicate that the stomach returns to its original shape after the removal of a LAP-BAND system. Keep in mind that removing the LAP-BAND can result in the patient regaining their weight once again.

For more information about LAP-BAND removal, please call LAP-BAND VIP at 1-855-690-0560, and one of our staff will be more than happy to answer any more questions, comments, or concerns you may have.
