The Laparoscopic (key-hole) adjustable gastric band is carried out under general anaesthesia. Gastric band is made of silicone and is fitted around top end of the stomach.
The band is fixed with sutures, this creates a virtual pouch proximal to the band. The band is connected to a reservoir (port) by a long tube. The reservoir is fixed on top of the abdominal muscles under the skin at the end of the operation.
The band is adjusted by injecting saline in to the reservoir, which is accessed with a special needle. It is a restrictive procedure where it reduces the amount of food eaten which subsequently helps to lose weight. This requires regular follow up, well-disciplined life style and frequent gastric band adjustments.
