An adjustable band is placed around the upper part of the stomach, creating a small pouch above the band. When the gastric band is correctly adjusted it helps control appetite, slows eating and reduce portion size.
The Gastric Bypass is the gold standard weight loss surgery. A small rectangular, pouch is formed from the upper stomach and joined to the small intestine. This surgery reduces calories absorbed and portion size.
Two thirds of the stomach is removed, leaving a smaller stomach in the shape of a sleeve. The portion of the stomach removed produces the hunger hormone, meaning there is a significant reduction in appetite.
