Lap-Band Patient Resources
Important Safety Information
The Lap-Band® System is indicated for weight reduction in adult obesity patients who have tried more conservative alternatives such as supervised diet and exercise. Patients who choose to have bariatric surgery with the Lap-Band must commit to life-long changes in their eating habits.

Managed Weight Loss with the Gastric Balloon
Weight loss surgery options at Hedden Plastic Surgery include the ORBERA™ Intragastric Balloon. This less-invasive bariatric surgery procedure fills the gap in obesity treatments between diet & exercise on one hand, and invasive surgery on the other. The Gastric Balloon takes up space in your stomach for 6 months and helps you eat less in conjunction with your individual support program.
