Asia is Enhancing Looks and Outlooks

Asia performed over 4 million cosmetic surgery procedures in 2011. The continent leads the world in this growing industry, an industry that people are turning to for better self-esteem and youthful looks.

Lap Band Surgery

Lap band surgery (or laparoscopic adjustable gastric band surgery), used in the treatment of obesity, involves positioning an inflatable silicone device around the stomach’s top section. The aim is to slow the intake of food, leading to less consumption.

Lap band surgery is a kind of bariatric surgery targeted at patients who have a BMI of 40 or more. It may also be used to treat other co-morbid disorders such as Type two diabetes, sleep apnea, hypertension and osteoarthritis. Lap band surgery is usually the last choice after other weight-loss solutions such as exercise and healthy dieting have been tried, but been unsuccessful. Unlike some other kinds of bariatric surgeries, lap band surgery does not involve the removal of any part of the stomach. The band is usually put into place through a laparoscopic surgery. If this band is removed, the stomach reverts back to its original shape.
