Adjustable Gastric Band
In the adjustable gastric band procedure, the surgeon attaches a special type of band to the upper part of the stomach. This band creates an isolated pouch on the stomach. When the stomach contracts, patients begin to feel a sense of fullness after consuming a small amount of food. With the gastric band in place, patients do not desire to consume excessive amounts of food, reducing their calorie intake.
The level of hunger experienced by patients depends on how tightly the band fits around their stomach. If the doctor leaves more space under the pouch, the patient can eat more. The tightness of the band is adjustable, and the doctor can readjust the opening. They do this by injecting a sterile solution into the band or removing it if they want to enlarge the opening. To facilitate this, the doctor leaves an access point to the band beneath the patient’s skin.
