Hello Anon
Thank you for writing.
There should be no issues with plane travel after a lap band. The cabin is fully pressurized. The only issue with plane travel is dehydration and a carb-filled snack and meal that can cause bloating. Anyone travelling 6 hours or less may want to consider only drinking water and fruit/veg during the flight. It works for me.
