Getting a fill is not a magic bullet. Perhaps the most important part of LAP-BAND® System surgery follow-up care is your consultation. This is when you meet with your surgeon at Stafford Surgical Specialists to go over your eating patterns, your exercise habits, the challenges you‘re facing, and anything else that may be getting in the way of your weight-loss efforts. You may discover that you need an adjustment in your eating habits, exercise level, or attitude instead of in the amount of fluid in your band. If so, your weight-loss clinic can help you find the resources you need to succeed.
