A gastric band is an adjustable silicone band, known as a Lap-Band, that is placed around the top of the stomach, with a very small pouch of the stomach above it. The band is connected to an access port that is placed beneath the abdominal wall, this is used to adjust the gastric band.
The gastric band is the least invasive and safest weight loss procedures that has been widely used for over 35 years. Often a Gastric band surgery can be carried out as a day case or with an overnight stay.
How does a Gastric Band work?
Once the gastric band has been placed saline can be injected into this port to adjust the pressure being applied by the gastric band. By adding saline and increasing the pressure on the upper stomach it creates a feeling of fullness resulting in a reduction of appetite.
