WORTH IT RATING 38 reviews over 24 months
Lap band surgery involves placing an inflatable band around the top portion of the stomach, limiting its ability to expand. Because it can't hold as much food before you feel full, you eat less and—if all goes according to plan—lose weight. LEARN MORE ›

I was hitting a UK size 24 and knew I looked professional but a fat professional. Image in my work is important so I needed to do something. I had the band in June 2014 with Tonic weight loss surgery as they offer a full aftercare package. Boy was I glad in December I developed a chest infection... READ MORE

After being overweight pretty much my whole life, I took out a personal loan to get the lap band. My insurance would not cover it (Exclusion for WLS on my policy). I am full of emotions! Happiness, freedom fear, scared, nervous. I want this to work out so bad. I have read so many reviews of band... READ MORE

I met Dr Liu in 2006, at that time he was known for performing more than 800 Lap Band surgeries, giving him the most experience in the area, maybe even nation wide. Dr Liu is gentle, caring, patient and has a wonderful sense of humor. I was blessed to have had the experience, and couldn't... READ MORE

Growing up I was always seen as "the fat girl." I never felt comfortable in my own skin around anyone... not even around myself. I have always felt like I am a failure and that I am going to die alone. This was all due to my EXTREMELY unhealthy eating habits and life style. Many people told me... READ MORE

Even though I put NO - not worth it I have to admit that the procedure did what is promised. I went from 268 down to 235 within the first 3-5 months. I went to the adjustment appointments for the first year with little weight loss as a result. The first issue I have is that I was promised... READ MORE

I had this done in 2010. I was really sick with diabetes and I couldn't' lose any weight and the Lap Band was fantastic for my immediate needs. I lost quite a bit of weight pretty easily, my diabetes actually went away, and overall I lost about 40lbs. I would really have liked to lose another... READ MORE

Before I had the procedure done, Dr. Cobourn spoke with me on the phone to answer any questions I had about the procedure and if I felt I was doing the right thing. He was extremely authentic, warm, and funny. The clinic was extremely professional and explained everything to me beforehand and as... READ MORE

I was asked to write a review for Lap Band. I had my Lap Band placed in July 2009. As of right now I am about 60 lbs down from my highest weight. It has been a journey that is for sure. There have been a lot of ups and downs both physically (nothing major) and emotionally. If I had it to do... READ MORE

I am at 5 weeks post surgery, loving it so far! 31 days of liquid diet, no vomiting or nausea whatsoever! I have never been hungry at all. I paid cash, insurance wouldn't help at all, but I will not pay for any after care for a full year. Surgeon was great, staff was awesome, recovery very... READ MORE

May 13, 2013 The story of my weight loss journey starts when I was five years old.
