After I lose weight can I have my LAP-BAND® taken out?

Many patients wonder if they can have their LAP-BAND® removed after they have achieved their goal weight. The LAP-BAND® is designed to remain in place indefinitely. We have studies that show that removing the lap band reduces hunger satiation, which means that you may no longer feel satisfied with small portions. While gastric banding is reversible, we recommend that you do not have the band removed once you meet your goal weight.
