Brandi L – LAP-BAND Surgery
After years of going up and down in weight, hitting 35 years old and standing at only 5ft 1″ and being borderline diabetic, I knew it was time for a life altering change. I needed something to help me be accountable for what I was consuming. I simply just wasn’t happy with the way I looked. I took the step to get a Lap band placed by Dr. Bagnato and his wonderful staff. My surgery went off without a hitch.
I’m just a little over a year in, and have already lost a total of 86 lbs. I’m not particularly hungry between meals, and have realized this is a life changing surgery. It is not a ‘quick’ or ‘easy fix’ for weight loss. My scars are small, and have all healed up well. I have to keep a positive mind, and know that my food choices are a very important role in helping the band be effective. I am glad I chose lap band for myself. It hasn’t always been easy, but it has been worth it.
