When you say "lap procedure", I assume by the title you are meaning the lap band. Just to help clarify, "lap procedure" applies to all of our surgeries, that are done laproscopically, like DS, RNY or sleeve.
You need to look at all the different choices of surgery, and you will likely re-think the band. Poor statistics for loss, maintenance and problems.
Go to all the boards, and see what you can and can't live with. I narrowed it down to the sleeve if I could get by on restriction alone, and the DS if I needed the help of malabsorption and didn't like some aspects of RNY.
I found it helpful to make an actual list of pros and cons, and when I had everything on it, the choice for me was a no-brainer.
