What is Greenzone Lap Band Surgery?
A Gastric Band, or Lap Band, is a restrictive band that is placed around the stomach, dividing it into two sections. The band is inserted around the stomach and filled with fluid to adjust the size of the band according to the needs of the individual.
The Green Zone is a term used to describe the optimal stomach size, where you can eat healthy and lose weight. Using the unique EndoFLIP® technology we are able to accurately measure the actual and ideal stomach size for each person, with no guess work needed and no need to come back to have your band adjusted for another three to six months. This means that you will get straight into the Greenzone, with optimal stomach size for safe and consistent weight loss.
Dr. Lopez Corvala is a leading weight-loss surgeon, ranked in the top ten in the world. You can feel at ease in his hands as he’s performed over 5,000 laparoscopic surgeries in his distinguished career. A patient’s main concern may not be the price, and when you choose the Angeles Health team, you get a highly experienced weight-loss team for your procedure.
With gastric lap band surgery there is a risk of the lap band being too tight, which can cause complications after the surgery. However, if you opt for green zone lap band surgery, the lap band can be more precisely customized for each patient. This takes away many risks including the risk of the band being too tight after surgery.
