There's the Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band procedure, also known as the LAP-BAND surgery. This procedure involves the surgeon putting a band around your stomach, causing you to get full faster. And then there's the Vertical Banded Gastroplasty procedure. This procedure involves the surgeon stapling a portion of the stomach. , also causing you to get full faster. Both of these methods will cause you to lose weight, however there's possible complications, risks and after effects.
