Which is safer the lap band or gastric sleeve surgery?

Gastric Sleeve and Lap Band are some of the most efficient surgeries which help patients control obesity and weight loss. Each procedure has its own advantages and disadvantages.

The gastric sleeve is beneficial for patients with a BMI over 45 and no intestinal bypass is need, therefore avoiding long-term complications. But, the gastric sleeve bypass is not reversible, it is rarely covered by health or medical insurance, there is a chance of not producing the expected weight loss, it is a little more expensive compared with the lap band and there is also the chance of leakage from staples.

The lap band requires no cutting of the stomach muscles or stapling, the procedure can be reversed, so the band can be removed, the stomach patch size is adjustable and the patient id released from hospital after 48 hours or even 24 hours. But, patients who choose this procedure will notice that the weight loss is slower, they will not be able to eat certain types of food and there is also the possibility for the gastric band to deflate or slip.

If you cannot choose between these two procedures you should talk to your doctor who will determine which is the best for you and which will suit your weight, circumstances and goals. Here are some of the best packages for obesity/bariatric surgery, including lap band surgery and gastric sleeve surgery.
