After inserting the band, it is placed around the upper part of the stomach region and stitched. By doing this the stomach is divided into two pouches.One is relatively smaller than the other. The smaller pouch is now used for digestive purpose so that the active digestive part of the stomach is reduced. As soon as the smaller pouch is filled with the food, he/she feels a state of fullness and so food intake is greatly reduced. This in turn reduces the food intake by the obese person.

The band introduced is adjustable by filling and dispensing fluids into the pouch of the band. Initially the pouch is connected to a reservoir tube that lies under the skin. This is placed during the Colonoscopy process. Gastric band surgery ensure seventy to seventy five percent of average excessive weight loss.

Is the Gastric Band The Most Useful Weight Loss Surgery Available?

Gastric Band Surgery cost Less at our Clinics in France and Belgium

The gastric band which is typically identified more fully as the laparoscopic adjustable gastric band, is a really useful device to help reduce the volume of food you consume. It basically acts like a belt around the top portion of your stomach, producing a small pouch. You will feel full after eating only a smaller amount of food. This feeling of fullness will stay, and you will feel satisfied eating three quite small meals a day.

The Gastric Lap Band has been utilized since about 1984 in its present form.

It presents several major advantages:

•It is fully adjustable. The adjustability of the lap band gives you and your doctor control to achieve weight loss while not creating too many unpleasant symptoms due to the degree of restriction.

•It is placed laparoscopically. For most people this means they can return to work very quickly after the procedure with a negligable recovery period.

•It is reversible. Removing the band would revert the stomach to its natural size and you would expect to gain weight again in the usual way.

Weight increase is possible with ANY weight loss procedures inclusive of the more radical procedures that initially result in speedy weight loss. World Health Organisation recommendation for monthly weight loss is ½ to 1 kilograms per week and lap patients may lose this, however this is not guaranteed, and depends on the individual, their personal situation, their personal motivation and their personal mobility.

Ulceration Gastritis Erosion – the band can on very rare occasions wear and aggravate a small area on the outside of the stomach which can then, in extreme cases, lead to migration of the band to the inside the stomach. This however is a very rare occurrence and usually warning signs are noticeable far in advance this ever happening.

In general terms the Gastric Lap Band offers a convenient, manageable method of weight loss surgery for the masses at a relatively reasonable cost to both the surgeon and the client which is why it is such a popular procedure. There are alternatives to this procedure such as the gastric sleeve, the gastric balloon, and for the morbidly obese the ultimate method is the gastric ByPass.

In general terms the lap band offers an easy, manageable method of weight loss surgery for the masses at a relatively reasonable cost to both he surgeon and the client.

Gastric band surgery can improve the quality of your life.

Gastric band surgery can dramatically improve the quality of your life.  On average Patients lose 70 percent of their excess body weight over a period of two to three years.  Gradual weight loss over the ensuing few years after the procedure can bring significant improvements in health.

Lap-band surgery patients who have undergone the surgery can reduce the risk of developing severe health conditions related to morbid obesity,  such as hypertension, high cholesterol,  heart disease,  sleep apnoea,  stroke,  cancer,  type 2 diabetes,  acid reflux disease,  asthma,  and osteoarthritis.

Gastric band surgery is one of the most popular procedures at most obesity clinics and carries several advantages over other bariatric techniques. This is because it does not involve any cutting,  stapling,  or other permanent alterations to the stomach and intestines.

Gastric banding patients are quite often very motivated patients, and in the long term weight loss has the added benefit of giving the patients a more active and fulfilled sex life,  add to this an increase in self-confidence,  increased mobility,  less illness and a longer life-expectancy make this type of  weight loss very attractive for patients and surgeons alike.

Bariatric surgery does have a few known risks,  but these are normally quite rare.  One of the main risks as with any surgery is the risk of developing an infection following the adjustable lap band placement according to university of Pittsburgh medical center.  Infection symptoms such as fever,  inflammation or pain at the surgical site located around the area of the abdomen where the ring is adjusted should be reported to a doctor as soon as possible.

Following surgery you would be required to follow strict diet and fitness guidelines to ensure long-term weight loss.  The lap band will make it so that you want to eat less because you feel fuller,  but you also have to learn about your attitudes and desires when it comes to food.

If you are obese or overweight,  are desperate to loss those access pounds,  and if nothing else has worked for you before, then you owe it to yourself to find out if gastric band surgery could be the solution you are looking for.

Gastric Band and Other Obesity Surgery Options

What is Obesity?

Obesity is broadly speaking characterised as being when a person is approximately 100 pounds above the ideal body weight. This can also be determined as a person with a  body mass index (BMI) of 35 to 40 or above.

The best procedure for the patient will be recommended by your bariatric surgeon at the first consultation who will consider all of the factors according to the general health, the weigh, and the attitude of the person. There are certain health factors which will always be taken in to consideration which are known as co-morbid factors which will include high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and sleep apnoea.  In general terms the more weight the person needs to lose, the more radical the type of operation.

Obesity Surgery Options

During the last ten years or so many techniques for weight loss surgery have been developed or perfected. The two most commonly known of these are gastric banding and gastric bypass surgery. There has recently been two new additions to this list which are known as the gastric sleeve (sleeved gastrectomy). and the gastric balloon

Gastric band Surgery

The gastric banding operation involves surgically placing a small adjustable silicone lap band around the upper part of the stomach creating a reduced stomach upper pouch area which restricts the volume of food which the stomach can accept at the time of eating.  This reduces the overall amount of food that the person can consume at any one time. The main advantages of gastric banding include a minimally invasive procedure, a shorter hospital stay, a faster recovery period, and the ability for ongoing adjustments to the band by filling the band with a saline solution which is an easily managed procedure which can be done at regular intervals by the surgeon, or a qualified nurse who has been specially trained to conduct this type of procedure.

Gastric Bypass Surgery

A gastric bypass  is a more radical surgery and has the additional advantage that there will be a more significant weight loss accomplished in a shorter period of time. However the main disadvantages of gastric bypass surgery is that this is a much more invasive surgical procedure, generally requiring at least three days hospitalisation, a higher risk of mal-absorption problems and the possibility of vitamin deficiency.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery

A gastric sleeve operation is executed by excising a fairly large portion of the stomach thereby reducing and reshaping the stomach into a banana shaped pouch. The disadvantages with this  procedure are that it is not as easily managed afterwards, but generally gives a speedier loss of weight.

Gastric Balloon Surgery

There is now a  further development which is known as the gastric balloon which is inserted inside the patients stomach thereby reducing the inner volume of the stomach. The Balloon can be adjusted by the volume of inflation of the balloon. This method is still in its early stages of development at the time of writing this article.
The main result of each of these operations effectively results in a smaller stomach. A reduced stomach not only restrict the volume of food the stomach can accept at any one time, it will also send a subliminal message to brain that the stomach is already full and therefore no further food is called for.

Post Surgery Considerations and Expectations
In many cases after a year has passed the patient will have lost a considerable amount of weight if they have followed the recommendations of the surgeons, have followed a stick diet which will have been recommended by a nutritionalist following surgery, and there have been no other complications.
Depending on the amount of weight loss it is quite common that a person may need further cosmetic surgery to remove access skin or re-shaping of the body mass. The most common of these include a thigh lift, tummy tuck (panniculectomy), complete body lift, a breast lift, breast reduction or an arm lift (brachioplasty).
Any major weight loss procedure normally improves dramatically the self image and self esteem of the patient, an improvement in lift style, quality of life and the most beneficial of is an increased life span.
