Converting from the Lap-Band to Gastric Sleeve
Have you considered converting from the Lap-Band to a Gastric Sleeve? For some patients, the Lap-Band isn’t the right tool for their weight loss journey. The surgery is done laparoscopically through five small incisions – all above the belly button. One incision is made to remove the port from the Lap-Band.
Weight Loss Surgery Success: Jineane Ford
“I can truly say, I am a new person,” said Jineane Ford, LAP-BAND recipient. “As somebody who has spent much of my life on television, my weight issues have been public, and I have struggled with my weight for years going up and down like a yo-yo. Before Dr. Simpson performed my procedure, I was on blood pressure medication. Now just four months post-surgery, I am off my blood pressure medicine and I am just about to my goal weight. The best part is I’m keeping the weight off, and I feel healthier and look better than I have in a very long time. My life has changed, and the best part is that the procedure is so easy. I just wish I would have done it sooner. The yo-yo is gone. Now I have the tool to maintain my weight, and I am still enjoying food.” Today Jineane is back at her Miss U.S.A weight.
