Information on Austin Lap-Band and Gastric Bypass Surgeons

If you are considering having weight loss surgery, the bariatric surgeons in Austin offer a variety of surgical options to help you combat the effects of obesity.

One of the more popular Austin weight loss surgeries is gastric banding, a form of "restrictive surgery" that reduces the size of the stomach. Gastric banding involves the placement of a band around a portion of the stomach, which constricts it and prevents it from holding excess food. This process curbs hunger and leads to dramatic weight loss.

Another form of weight loss surgery Austin weight loss surgeons perform is gastric bypass, a procedure in which a portion of the stomach is removed and therefore "bypassed."

If you do decide to have bariatric surgery in Austin, be sure to compare a few board certified surgeons who have undergone advanced training in bariatric surgery. These surgeons are better able to advise you as to which procedures best fit your particular situation.
