Lap Band Surgery Before and After Photos

Ever wonder how what people look like before and after lap band surgery? LAP-BAND Surgery, referred to as Gastric Banding, has helped thousands of patients lose weight long-term. The lap band procedure is an interesting weight loss procedure, as it doesn’t remove or reroute anything inside of the body.
