I had a lap-band placed about 6 years ago, but I struggled with getting the right amount of restriction and eventually had all the fluid removed, leaving no residual restriction. After having the band deflated, I lost about 80 lbs on my own. I recently had an anchor abdominoplasty done and I am very happy with the results but the port is now VERY prominent. Is it possible to have just the port removed and not the whole band? If so, could this be done outpatient, under a local?
