The surgery technique, which involves a silicone device being placed around the top portion of the stomach to help people become full quicker and limit their food intake on average costs around $12,000. Although it has and still does have many success stories, it can involve complications where people have suffered and even lost their life.

A spokesman for HealthyRecommendation said: "Lap Band surgery which is designed for obese patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or greater is becoming more commonly used in the USA. But, what we would like to stress is, it's not as safe as people think and there are safer, less intrusive and more affordable ways of losing weight."
