His specialty practice is dedicated to helping patients deal with obesity by enabling them to lose weight and encouraging them to develop healthy habits.

With LAP-BAND weight loss surgery, a small silicone band is placed around the stomach, creating a small upper stomach pouch. This small pouch will hold a very small amount of food, allowing you to feel full more quickly and for a longer period of time. The silicone band prevents food from entering the rest of the stomach too fast. The silicone band can be adjusted to allow more or less food from entering the larger portion of the stomach. It can also be removed completely in the future if you feel that you can manage your weight without it. For lap band in Los Angeles contact Dr. Carson Liu.
