At SmartShape™, we have successfully helped thousands of Canadians achieve significant and sustained weight loss with the Lap-Band® system. Each person has had their own reasons for deciding to have the Lap-Band® procedure, just as you do. The team at SmartShape specializes in obesity and welcomes the opportunity to help you make a life-changing commitment.

Many times, we are asked how exactly the Lap-Band® system works. You can check out a video animation of how the Lap-Band® system works on our YouTube channel, where you will also find real people telling their stories of how the Lap- Band® system has helped them to find success on their weight loss journeys.

You can find this video on the SmartShape Regina clinic’s “AspenLapBand” website here, under FEATURE VIDEOS – What is a Lap-Band?


The Lap-Band® System is an adjustable gastric band designed to help you lose excess body weight, improve weight-related health conditions and enhance quality of life.
