Don't do it. If you self pay for a band you will be self pay to have it removed and revised to something that actually works long term.
If you have ins to pay for surgery make very sure you pick the right surgery type the first time around. If it doesn't work (and it won't, not long term) most ins co's are going to a 'one WLS per lifetime' policy and you will be self pay for a revision.
