Being healthy is a choice everyone has to face on a daily basis, from the food eaten to the number of body exercises we decide to do.

All these numerous choices have either affected the body negatively or positively. For some, these negative effects might be easily addressed with a little change in habit and routine, while for some it requires taking extreme measures to help correct the defect acquired from it. 

Obesity is one of the negative effects of bad health choices that most likely always require extreme measures to be taken before it can be adequately corrected. 

There are various ways to correct obesity, which ranges from subjecting the body to intense dieting and exercises to surgery Procedures. 

The first choice is generally the most promoted method as it seems safer and hands-on with the added advantage of making healthy life choices that will improve one's overall lifestyle. The downside to this choice is that majority of the time, people tend not to follow through with the original plan as time goes on and they get to relapse at a rate worse than how they started. Looking at it carefully this method goes against the instinctive habit these patients have come to build over time and have gotten used to. For those who are able to pull through and stick to the plan, this is inarguably the best means of losing weight and leading a healthy life. 

The second option which involves surgery is a little bit extreme but in some cases of obesity, it is the best option for the patients as it usually assures and guarantees completion and result. There are three major types of weight/stomach reduction surgery; each with its benefits and requirements.

Out of these three, the one we have chosen to talk about in this article is the Lap band surgery.

This particular surgery seems to be the most convenient of the three and also it doesn't demand extreme change in habit or healthy choices to be made. 

There are many reasons why this particular surgery method is recommended and seems to be the best fit for most people.  These reasons include;


1. Lesser Risk 
The Lap-band surgery does not involve fat removal or having to cut out some parts of the stomach. The surgery involves making use of an elastic material to divide the stomach into two parts, with one part receiving the food while the other is shut off. This means no risk of incision inside the body.


2. It Serves As A General Calories Intake Reduction Purpose
The surgery works by helping to speed up the rate at which food reaches the digestive system from the esophagus. This way unnecessary food is not taken in and also the feeling of satisfaction is quickly reached; therefore the food intake is greatly reduced.


3. It Offers The Quickest Recovery
Since the surgery does not involve any major tissue cutting or inner stomach incision, the surgery method allows for the fastest recovery option.

These are just a few of the reasons, apart from the fact that the cost of lap band surgery is a fraction of what you should expect from other forms of weight reduction surgery.
