Lap Band Fills and Adjustments
The Lap-Band System can be easily adjusted to limit the amount of food you can eat. The band can be adjusted tighter (for more restriction) or loosened (to allow more food to pass through) by adding or removing saline. The procedure is virtually painless and only takes minutes to complete. It is recommended that you only intake liquids for a few days after the fill before returning to solid foods. Since every patient is different, the amount of adjustments, if any, will vary from person to person.
