What Results Can I Expect From Lap Band?

Lap Band surgery is an extremely safe and highly effective way to treat obesity. It can help you achieve lasting results by reducing your appetite, limiting your food intake, and as such, it’s an extremely popular and successful way to lose weight.

After your Lap-Band has been placed, you’ll still have to play an active role in your weight-loss process to ensure your success. It’s also important to note that although your weight loss will be significant, it will also be gradual. In other words, you won’t lose the weight all at once. In general, you can expect to lose one to two pounds a week throughout the first year, though individual results will vary. This gradual weight loss allows your body to adjust and enables the stretched out skin to contract and mold over the muscles.

Lost 75 lbs after Weight Loss Surgery. Los Angeles, CA

I’d been struggling with my weight for years. The day my primary physician told me that “I now weigh enough qualify for GI Bypass Surgery” I spun into a deep depression. Knowing that being 5’7″ at 253 lbs and depressed is not healthy, I knew I had to do something. I was looking at my future and realized that I was on a destructive path. Both my parents are morbidly obese and I knew I didn’t want to end up like them. They have a difficult time playing with the grandchildren, getting up and down stairs, and simply just walking around. I knew I wanted better. I needed better. My daughter needs me.

Thanks to Dr. David Davtyan’s knowledge of the Lap Band system as well as his skill and caring as a surgeon I no longer suffer from sleep apnea or high cholesterol and I am no longer pre diabetic. I have much more energy and fell great. Dr. Davtyan and his very knowledgeable staff have given me a new lease on life.

Lowell T. Stark

I would highly recommend Dr. David Davtyan without hesitation to anyone considering having the Lap-Band AP system placed as a tool for weight loss. I researched two other doctors before making my decision and found Dr. Davtyan to be the most outstanding example in this area of expertise. I have extreme confidence in Dr. Davtyan and his surgical skills as well as total comfort with the experience because of his medical team’s style and approach.

Working in the medical setting myself and having multiple family members in the medical profession, I was highly impressed with the medical model Dr. Davtyan and staff utilized in their facility. The anesthesiologist called the night before my surgery to discuss everything that would happen, which greatly alleviated my fears. State of the art HD viewing equipment was used to enhance the surgical procedure producing an almost 3D image that allowed Dr. Davtyan to do the best work possible. I was even told that Dr. Davtyan would repair anything the surgical team encountered, such as a hernia, if it was discovered once in the operating room. No request was overlooked and Dr. Davtyan took the time to personally tell me that both he and his physician’s assistant were just a phone call away 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Dr. Davtyan’s integrity came through with flying colors as follow-up/post-op phone calls from both he and Kelly, his physician’s assistant, proved to be reliable, comforting, and medically helpful. There was minimum discomfort the day of the surgery and I recovered easily within a little over one week. My scars are healing nicely and are barely visible.

It’s been 25 days since my surgery and I have lost 12 lbs. This is extremely exciting for me as I have experienced such difficulty losing weight and keeping it off for the last 15 years. In the past I poured my hope, energy, and finances into every diet-exercise plan out there just to lose minimal weight with maximum effort and then gain it all back plus more. I am now eating smaller portions and feeling very satisfied with the good choices I am making because they are so much easier to make with the Lap-Band. I used to think that bariatric surgery was an absolute last resort. I looked at it like failure to do it this way because I couldn’t lose the weight I wanted to on my own. But now I can say with complete conviction that I’m a true believer in using the Lap-Band as a tool that will help me stay strong and on track with my weight loss goals for the rest of my life. If you or someone you care about is considering the Lap-Band I would strongly recommend meeting with Dr. Davtyan. He has the Lap-Band system himself which makes him that much more capable and compassionate for those who seek a way to lose the weight for life.

L. Horvath

An absolute delight from start to finish. Strange way to describe surgery, isn’t it? But it’s true. My primary care physician had suggested I look into bariatric surgery. After spending over a year looking at the possibilities, I decided all the popular methods were just too extreme and scary for me. Then my friend told me about Dr. Davtyan and LapBand surgery. Suddenly, it all made sense. My friend had also researched and interviewed several LapBand surgeons and chose Dr. Davtyan, so that was good enough for me. I made an appointment and the rest is history. The staff is kind, helpful and supportive. They were always friendly and courteous. The nursing staff made the process easy. Yes, actually easy. The atmosphere was very positive; it was clear they all knew exactly what they were doing. They quickly put me at ease. And the anesthesiologist walked in. I have had several surgeries in the past and have never seen the anesthesiologist, never minded speak to one. Dr. Davtyan came in, asked many, many questions about my health history and, again, made me feel that I was in extremely capable hands. Dr. Davtyan is a doll. He made it clear that he is available at any time and he means it! The week after surgery was a nervous time for me, imagining everything that could go wrong. He (and his staff) nursed me through that time and I was so grateful for that. A week after surgery, I am in great shape and look forward to a healthier future, thanks to Dr. Davtyan.

Just a note to say “thank you” very much for providing your services to me. Dr. Davtyan I know that I have been truly blessed to receive your help with my breast cancer.

I am a nurse and the owner and operator of a health care assisted living facilities and was REALLY impressed by the level of professionalism given to me by the doctor and staff. From the time I was rolled into the room, I was never left alone. I was taken care of through out my time at the center. The anesthesiologist was excellent and I had a sense that the whole team really cared about me. I had no complications and I only used the pain medication once. I was VERY pleased!

Sarah H.

The doctor and staff are fabulous. I felt very comfortable being here and felt well taken care of. I am very hopeful that this is going to work. I have lost 18.5 pounds in two months!!!

The staff was great, I felt very supported and comfortable. I am happy that I have lost 15Ibs in 21 days.

I’d been struggling with my weight for years. The day my primary physician told me that “I now weigh enough qualify for GI Bypass Surgery” I spun into a deep depression. Knowing that being 5’7″ at 253 lbs and depressed is not healthy, I knew I had to do something. I was looking at my future and realized that I was on a destructive path. Both my parents are morbidly obese and I knew I didn’t want to end up like them. They have a difficult time playing with the grandchildren, getting up and down stairs, and simply just walking around. I knew I wanted better. I needed better. My daughter needs me.
I knew I didn’t want a GI Bypass as I know its not reversible and has a ton of side affects. I had heard about Lap-Band from my primary physician. I started looking into the surgery and who was the most qualified to do the surgery in the LA Area. There he was. Dr. David Davtyan. A doctor who actually has the band himself!! Who better to ask questions from? Suddenly my dark depression looked a little brighter. I made the appointment for my consultation. I met with Dr. ‘D’ in spring of 2006. Dr. D and his team were awesome. They welcomed me in with open arms. Not making me feel bad about being a ‘Fat Person’. I was so happy, I cried in his office. Dr. D had all my answers. Dr. D isn’t your typical doctor. HE LISTENS!!! He Cares!!! Where else can you find that?

I had my surgery August 24, 2006. I consider that the day I got my life back. Dr. Davtyan, gave that to me. He’s been there for me from the beginning and 2 years later and 75 pounds lighter, he’s still here. Being overweight is a difficult thing to overcome. Physically and emotionally. But IT IS possible. Dr. Davtyan and his team made it possible. Dr. D gave me a way to live a healthy lifestyle. For that, I am forever grateful.

Anyone considering WLS should seriously consider Lap-Band. And if you do, your only choice for a physician should be Dr. David Davtyan! It’ll be the best decision of your life.

Stacey McAtee

The best medical experience, more so after losing 22 pounds the first 9 days after surgery.

Despina K.

In 1999 my life completely changed when I was diagnosed with colon cancer. Pursuant to surgery, where 8 inches of my colon was removed, as well as, a lesion from my liver, my doctor informed me after only 1 month that a second surgery was necessary.

The news was traumatic and we agreed that a second opinion was in order, and that is how I had the great privilege of meeting you, Dr. Davtyan. You concurred that another surgery was unavoidable; however, I was not ready for that. I preceded with heavy chemotherapy treatments for 11 months, to no avail. You were right the second surgery was unavoidable. Even though we both knew that my chances of surviving this dreaded disease was slim, you never wavered.

Your confidence gave me confidence. Your knowledge and expertise in the field gave me strength and optimism. I truly believed that you would do anything within your power to try and save my life and with that we went on the arduous journey of killing the cancer, before it could kill me.

You began surgery with fervor and successfully in duration of 8 hours burned 5 tumors in my liver by radio frequency ablation and inserted an intra-arterial hepatic pump, which would allow me the ability to receive chemotherapy more easily and directly into my liver. This was new technology at the time, but there was no hesitation on your part to use every possible avenue in helping me survive and heal.

Eight years later, I am still here and have an immense appreciation for life an optimistic outlook on the many more years I hope to enjoy with my family and friends. I am certain that when you see me in your office alive and well, you are proud that you are my doctor. There are not enough words to express the deep appreciation and well respect I have for you not only as my physician, but caring and compassionate human being as well.

N.A.

Just wanted to say how much I appreciate what you an your staff have done for me. I am sure you hear it all the time but you have changed my life, and for that I thank you.

Melanie S.

I would like to thank you all for your concerns, motivation, courage and great care. You made me a strong individual and I appreciate each and every one of you!

I, Liana S., had the surgery on February 28, 2006 and it was the best accomplishment I ever made. It changed my life for the better. I lost a 150 pounds and it has been life changing. I am stronger, healthier, and happier. Thank you Dr. Davtyan and staff!

Liana S.

Thank you for taking such good care of me when you removed my gall bladder. You are not only a good Dr., you are a kind and caring man. Thank you and God Bless.

Joanna P. and Family

The LapBand was one of my best decisions I’ve made in my life. Dr. Davtyan and Staff answered every question and were great. They made me feel comfortable every visit. I haven’t had any trouble with the LapBand and would do it again if I had to under Dr. Davtyan.

Roselin R.

Other than the standard “my experiences have been better than I expected”. Dr. Davtyan and his staff are GREAT! This is the most caring and patient group of people who I would trust my life to, if there ever came a situation where I needed to. Honestly, there should be more MD’s and staff as wonderful as Dr. Davtyan and company! I have to say one additional thing; I’d do this again as well as recommend anyone to do this with this lovely group of people.

Amy C.

Surgery was a piece of cake. I recovered after 5 days without any complications. The hospital and staff offered excellent care. I’m happy with the results. This procedure changed my life mentally and physically.

Armine D.

It’s only one week since my surgery, but I can say that Dr. Davtyan and his staff provided me with very good information about this too that im very sure will improve my health and the healthy of anybody who qualifies for this operation. My experience until today has been pleasant despite the normal discomfort-which is normal in any surgery. Dr. Davtyan and his staff are wonderful people, very professional and caring. I will definitely recommend him to others.

Anabel P.

I like everything about it. It changed my life 360 degrees!!! I feel GOOD … I feel LIGHT … I feel FULL OF LIFE, FINALLY! Thank you, thank you, and thank you.

It’s been 1 week since the surgery and I feel completely back to normal. Ive lost 16 pounds. The staff was extremely helpful in answering any questions that came to mind. Thank you Dr. Davtyan!

Mariam M.

I have been dieting since I was 13 yrs old. I used to be a “yo-yo” dieter. I would lose 40 pounds and once I stopped dieting I would gain everything back plus more. I decided to go ahead with the LapBand procedure when I was at my heaviest weight ever. I wish I had known about the LapBand sooner. In 8 months I’ve already lost 44 pounds and I couldn’t be happier and healthier. Dr. Davtyan and his staff are wonderful they are cautious and alert. The staff makes you feel comfortable and are very caring!

Lusine K.

The surgery went off without a hitch. I awoke to good care. The post-op staff was great. I slept well on and during the day and went home that same evening. Other than minor discomfort and the need to seep, I felt just fine. It is now 1 week after surgery and I feel great. I have lost 16 Ibs and I have begun cardio workout (30 min. daily) 4 days ago. My 9 yr old walks with me. This is a good beginning.

Mark L.

I am very happy about the decision I made to have the surgery done. It is very safe and not complicated at all. I’ve lost 33 pound’s in 4 months and I have gone from a size 24 to a size 18. I will recommend the LapBand to overweight people to have this procedure done and have great results like me.

I am writing this letter to state my deepest gratitude and appreciation for my experience undergoing Lap Band surgery at your clinic.

Over course of almost two months leading to the surgery, I received from you and your staff the utmost professional and caring treatment once could ever wish for. Your establishment, starting with yourself and extending to each and every one of your staff never seized to amaze me of the level of professionalism and caring for a patient. I paid very little for what I received. When I add up the amount of time you and your staff spent with me, educating, preparing, and answering my numerous questions and add the surgery itself which I would like to address in emphasis, it makes me wonder how one can get the absolutely exceptional care I received for this little money. I would have been very grateful had I paid several times what I paid.

The day of surgery was an experience that further astonished me, my girlfriend and my sister. To summarize in one word, “WOW, WOW, WOW …”. For almost 9 hours, there were a world renowned surgeon, a very well known and respected anesthesiologist, three professional assistants (doctors) and 4 more high-level support staff all working tirelessly on my operation.

From the minute we arrived your ultra modern facility with the latest equipment and marble covered floors until the minute we walked out, I was pampered, care for, encouraged, constantly monitored and treated with respect every minute. I felt like royalty, there were at least 5 people around me at all times. Your staff is consisting of absolutely knowledgeable, highly professional, and genuinely caring people. In simple mans words I can say this. “If I had paid a million dollars for my experience, I would still walk out extremely satisfied getting every penny’s worth of my million dollars”.

As a patient, once more, I would like to seize this opportunity to state my most sincere and heartfelt gratitude for the way you treated me. I would like to think I am the only one who received such extraordinary treatment and care but I have talked to more than a half a dozen people who have had the same experience before me. They all come short of words to praise you and your medical services.

In summary:

You care for your patients like a loved family member.

Your medical services are second to none.

Your establishment and equipment are second to none.

Your staff is amazingly friendly, professional and super caring.

This has been a joyful experience for me and my family. We will remain eternally grateful to you. You are a priceless gen for our community and a heavenly blessing for your patients.

As I searched and struggled but could not find the right words to express my true gratitude to you and to your wonderful staff, I have to reluctantly settle for a heartfelt and sincere “THANK YOU”.

May God bless you, your loved ones and your establishment.

Noric R.

In July of 1997 you and your colleagues operated on my son Matthew for a presumed isolated colon cancer polyp. When you came in to talk to me and my daughter after the surgery you told me that you and the surgical team was “devastated” to discover that my sons cancer had moved to his liver (3 lesions). I asked what the prognosis was, etc., and you told me that he was a “stage 5” cancer and Matt had-at least- a 20% chance of survival.

You also told me that the surgery had removed all the cancerous lesions, but the cancer had traveled to other areas of his body.

I (and my daughter) was of course in shock but never so I will never forget the deep sense of compassion and loss that you yourself felt at having to present the facts to us (and through in to Matt). I also recall how affirmative you were with Matt when we met subsequently in your office.

Well, Dr. Davtyan, I am writing to you now to make sure you know just how fabulous a surgical job (you even removed Matt’s gallbladder) you did on that day. Matt is alive, and now the father of a beautiful young baby girl.

I have meant to write to you on several earlier occasions, Dr., but the combined birth of Matt’s daughter and his graduation from UCLA finally provided me to take pen in hand. All I can say, Dr. Davtyan, is that you saved his life-period! How can a father possibly express his gratitude for that? I can’t. All I can say is that you will always be in my heart and in my prayers.

Bob P.

As a healthcare professional, and a former Professor at the UCLA Medical School. I carefully researched who was the best trained and highest quality surgeon for LapBand’s in Southern California. Dr. Davtyan’s credentials are unmatched. He was trained as a surgeon and least invasive specialist at MD Anderson/ Univ. of Texas, the top Cancer Center in the World, and has done hundreds upon hundreds of Lap Band procedures outpatient. These were the most important for me.

The procedure was quick (home in 3 hours) painless, and I was back at work after a day. As important, Dr. Davtyan made himself available 24/7 … which made me very comfortable, even though I didn’t really need it.

I have lost dramatically, yet without struggle in 4 months, cured GERD, sleep apnea and reduced blood pressure meds, and feel and look great.

He and the staff are very caring, committed knowledgeable and assessable. Their medical expertise and quality are matched only by their 5 star services.

LAP-BAND Patient Robin, Lost 100 Lbs:

I felt the gastric bypass was too drastic a surgery but I knew I needed to do ‘something’. When I heard about the LAP-BAND, I knew immediately it was perfect. I knew that the LAP-BAND would help me lose weight with reduced food intake without the starvation and deprivation. If I got pregnant or got ill, all the fluid could be removed and I could have a temporary ‘regular’ stomach again. It seemed like a no-brainer!

Now, three and a half years after LAP-BAND surgery, I feel like a totally transformed person! The LAP-BAND changed my life!

LAP-BAND Patient Brooke, Lost 160 Lbs:

I was tired of living life at 292 lbs. I had success with other weight-loss methods, but none of them worked long-term. I have a son whom I did not want to embarrass one day. I wanted to be around to enjoy him growing up, to see him graduate and get married. I wanted to be healthy, and I wanted the woman on the outside to match the one on the inside.

As a nurse I researched as much as I could. I loved the fact that the LAP-BAND was the safest surgery available and that it was adjustable. I have lost 160 lbs since my surgery, and I have to admit… I really love the way I look as well.

LAP-BAND Patient Frank, Lost 135 Lbs:

I enjoy backpacking and scuba diving. As I got heaver, it became increasingly more difficult for me to be active. I tried everything and was dedicated to losing weight – but nothing worked.

I didn’t want to wind up with health problem. I am married and wanted to start a family. I felt as if I was losing control of my life, despite all of my efforts.

I choose the LAP-BAND because the surgery is much shorter and less risky, and recovery is quicker. I returned to work the day I was back from the hospital. Almost four years after my surgery, I am still in control of my weight and my life and enjoy every day I spend with my daughter.

LAP-BAND Patient Elma, Lost 135 Lbs:

Before my surgery, I spent 20 years feeling ashamed of how I looked. I was miserable. Every joint in my body hurt from packing around the weight. In January 2001, I decided to have LAP-BAND surgery.

I am now wearing size 10 clothes, and that is smaller than I thought I would be when I was all done losing weight! I continue to be amazing at this new body of mine, and I love being able to do anything I want without a second thought. And sharing my success with the LAP-BAND and letting people know about this wonderful, safe and less invasive weight-loss surgery is so much fun.

I have been a general surgeon for 20 years and started doing LAP-BAND surgery around the same time that I got my own LAP-BAND – in October 2002. After this minimally invasive procedure, I was back at home the next day and was able to resume operating 2 days later.

It is absolutely magnificent to see a patient taking six pills a day, and, within a matter of a couple of weeks, see them come back to the office taking no medication. It is the first time in my medical career as a surgeon where I can truly cure a chronic medical disease.

LAP-BAND Patient Lisa, Lost 140 Lbs:

I struggled with my weight my entire life. I tried everything, every diet and exercise combination imaginable, but had managed to diet my way to over 300 lbs. At that weight, life was a struggle. Even though I was young, I had high blood pressure, was borderline diabetic and suffered from constant lower back pain.

I discovered the LAP-BAND on the Internet, attended a patient seminar and immediately knew it was right for me. Since my surgery, I no longer have high blood pressure, high blood sugar levels or lower back pain. The LAP-BAND has been the tool that I needed to finally be successful at hosting weight!
