The founder of the Nicholson Clinic for Weight Loss Surgery explains why this option works for so many.

Plano, TX, March , 2015 – When routine weight loss efforts, such as diet and exercise alone don’t produce the necessary results, bariatric surgery can provide the assistance people need to shed the pounds. Weight loss surgery delivers a number of potential options, but for many the Lap Band procedure is considered the best choice.

“While not indicated in every case, Lap Band surgery is a solid choice for many patients because of the benefits it delivers,” says Dr. Nick Nicholson, founder and lead surgeon at the North Texas-based Nicholson Clinic, one of the top weight loss surgery centers in the country. “Although still very much a surgical procedure, the Lap Band operation is less invasive, produces excellent results for many and is completely reversible should the need arise.”

Lap Band surgery involves the laparoscopic placement of a band around the stomach that effectively reduces its capacity, Dr. Nicholson says. This belting promotes the consumption of smaller meals while enabling patients to feel fuller faster. In addition, the band itself can be adjusted down the road or removed.

“This type of weight loss surgery presents with a lower risk factor for patients due to its nature while enabling people to lose as much as 40 percent of their excess weight in a single year,” Dr. Nicholson says. “Since it’s less invasive, patients find they are in less pain after surgery and are able to resume normal activities much more quickly than they might after a more involved procedure.”

Bariatric surgery of any type is a serious step that should be weighed carefully based on risks and potential rewards, Dr. Nicholson says.

“Before choosing a surgical option to address obesity, it’s imperative to discuss all the choices with a knowledgeable physician and understand the pros and cons,” Dr. Nicholson adds. “When the right choice for your case is selected, the results can be very pleasing.”

Founded by Dr. Nick Nicholson, one of the country’s leading weight loss surgeons and co-author of “” The Real Skinny,” the Nicholson Clinic for Weight Loss Surgery offers a variety of options to help gain control of their weight and their lives.
