The SmartShape Advantage

The Apollo LAP-BAND® System. The #1 Choice Of Surgeons Worldwide.

At SmartShape™ Weight Loss Centre, the only band we use is the Apollo LAP-BAND® System –– the most widely used and researched band in the world. There are bargain bands offered by some clinics in order to promote their low prices but remember, this is your health and your body. It’s not like trying to save a dollar or two on a bargain dishwashing detergent. When your health is involved, why settle for less than the very best? And you may ask yourself –– if a clinic skimps on the quality of the banding device they use, what else might they skimp on?
