Many of my friends have mentioned wanting to get the Lap Band to help them lose weight, but I didn't understand why they would want to risk major surgery to get it. I decided to check into it some more, and discovered that it is done laparoscopically, so only tiny incisions are used. This makes the actual procedure much easier, and doesn't require major healing time like with larger incisions.
For now, I'll lose weight the old fashioned way, but I might consider a lap band myself some day.
