The LAP-BAND® Surgery Diet

It is very important that you strictly follow the nutritional guidelines avoiding these:

  • Sodas
  • Syrups
  • Cake
  • Candy
  • Jelly
  • Marmelade
  • Honey
  • Fatty food
  • Chocolate
  • Sweet bread
  • French Fries

All of these have a high calorie value and they delay your weight loss even with a tight band.  You must not eat solid food with liquids at the same time, this could increase the possibility of throwing up.
It is important to maintain well hydrated, at least 2 liters of water per day.
When you are eating take your time and have small portions chewing at least 30 times and let swallowing take it´s time after the next bite, this way you will know when you are satisfied and will not throw up, compulsive eating could favors throwing up (lap-band throwing up) and this conditions a band to slip or create an ulcer, reason why it is important to stop eating when full.

Lap Band surgery is performed in Tijuana, Mexico with success due to the closeness with San Diego, USA, San Diego International Airport allows to our patients to arrive from every part of the world, where they are picked up  and taken to our facilities when the surgery will take place, pre-op testing evaluations and later on the procedure. The surgery time is approximately 45 min. then you are taken back to your private room fully awake and ready to start walking for your recovery, the morning after a barium swallow (x-ray)  will be performed with the first fill adjustment to confirm that everything is in position, post-op report and records are given and you are taken back to the five star hotel, you stay one more night there and a ride back the San Diego.

San Diego and Tijuana are border cities, adjacent to the Pacific divided by only a few miles, reason why their security is very similar as the Infrastructure.
