Does the LAP-BAND System require frequent office visits after surgery?
Check-ups are a normal and a very important part of LAP-BAND System follow-up. Two weeks after surgery, then at 6 weeks for first adjustment (fill), and then as necessary for your adjustments. If you can eat half a sandwich then it is time for an adjustment. The first year you could have as many as 8 adjustments and then the second year 2-4. We require that you come in yearly once you have a achieved your weight loss goal or anytime you need an adjustment to your band.
