A gastric band procedure, or lap banding, is a surgical procedure that consists of introducing an adjustable band around the stomach to reduce its size. The band can be adjusted to reduce the size of the stomach therefore limiting the amount of food ingested and reducing the feeling of hunger.
The gastric band surgery is done through laparoscopy, meaning through a small incision in the abdomen and using a small and flexible tube equipped with a camera to place the band around the stomach. The gastric band can be adjusted depending on the individual objective and needs of every patient. A saline solution is injected into the band to tighten it or sucked out to loosen it.
The benefit of this procedure versus a traditional gastric bypass, is that a gastric band is less invasive and therefore bringing less of the normal risks associated with invasive surgery. The drawback of this method is that the band needs to be removed through the same laparoscopic surgery after some time and that it is not always as effective.
