New Lap-Band® Offers Patients TLC

Allergan, the maker of the Lap-Band adjustable gastric banding system, has created a new post-operative support program to help Lap-Band patients adopt a healthy lifestyle after surgery. The manufacturer has teamed up with a company called Lindora to create the Lap-band System Therapeutic Lifestyle Change Program – or, Lap-Band TLC for short.

Through the new online program, users can get diet and exercise tips from health experts, personalized coaching, and host of other weight-loss management tools.

Lindora operates a chain of clinics in southern California specializing in medically supervised weight control and also offers a do-it-yourself weight loss system with a book, CD and DVD, as well as online support. Their mission is to help patients adopt new habits to lose weight safely and stay lean for life.

The new Lap-Band TLC support program expands on Allergan’s existing online program for pre- and post-op support, called My Lap-Band Journey.

In addition to the partnership with Lindora, Allergan has also teamed up with Curves International to provide female band patients with a discounted membership rate at any Curves fitness club. To help them get in shape post-op, patients will receive a two-week free trial membership, 50 percent off the initiation fee for a paid membership, and 10 percent off their monthly membership dues.
