Simply put, SmartShape is a life changer. For the first time in my life (and I was 67 years old when the Lap Band was installed) I have been in charge of my eating. The entire process at SmartShape is patient-oriented and of the highest professional standards. The follow-up and continuing care together with personal consultation on an ongoing basis ensures success. I had very high expectations – I am well beyond totally satisfied 11 months post-surgery.
