Robert

My co-workers don’t believe that I was ever over 400lbs. I had to bring a picture in to show them. It has given me back my life. If one person see’s my picture, and it helps them to decide to have this done… It will be worth sharing.

Robert received the band in 2008. He has lost a total of 201lbs! He is still continuing to lose weight.

Judy

There is so much to say about the positive effects of having a lap band it’s hard to know where to start. Just to name a few. Of course I’ve lost weight and am still losing. I no longer take blood pressure medication. I don’t feel ravenous all the time. I’m more healthy and have more energy to exercise and enjoy life. I can tie my shoes. I can put my pants on without having to sit on a chair. I can climb a flight of stairs without stopping 3 or 4 times. It’s a lot more fun to shop for clothes!

And all I have to do is, drink more water which has given me nicer hair skin and less bloating. Take smaller bites and chew my food longer which has allowed me to enjoy flavors more and have better digestion. Stop eating as soon as I feel satisfied making me feel more comfortable, and take advantage of the support offered by the program helping me stay on track and solve individual issues.

Having my lap band isn’t Fairy Dust, but it’s the next best thing.

Judy received her Lap-Band in 2007. She has had a total weight loss of 56lbs and has maintained 40lbs weight loss.

I became a Lap-Band patient at South Valley Surgical about 9 years ago and have been thrilled with the results. I lost a total of 84 pounds and have been able to maintain 70 pounds for 9 years now. I have been a Lap-Band Nurse here for 8 years, and I love it! I enjoy helping people improve their quality of life and experience success at weight loss. It is exciting to watch patients I care about achieve their goals and regain control over their health.
