What is a gastric band?

The stomach gastric band is one of the most effective and common means for getting rid of obesity through surgery, The idea behind it is to connect the stomach with a ring or belt of flexible silicone material.
This method depends on the doctor's conclusion that the main reason for the obesity of the patient and their inability to lose weight is the widening of the stomach, the increase in its capacity for food, and the difficulty in feeling full.
Hence, the gastric band helps to overcome this problem by reducing the stomach's volume and capacity, as the doctor places it on the upper part of the stomach to create a small pocket that accommodates a reasonable amount of food, neither big nor small, which accelerates the feeling of being full and leads to limited eating and calculated quantities of food and thus Rapid weight loss.

Who are the best candidates for gastric band surgery ?


To undergo gastric band operation, you need to have a certain criteria. The surgery is mainly for people with a BMI greater than (35 or 30-35).
You must have comorbidities or medical conditions related to obesity like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure or sleep apnea.
Gastric band is a solution for people who have tried losing weight with other traditional methods like sports and dieting but have failed to lose the weight they wanted to lose.

How is the gastric band operation performed ?

The gastric band procedure involves placing a soft silicone ring with an expandable balloon in the middle and around the upper part of the stomach.
This makes the stomach divided into two parts, with a much smaller upper part above the belt.
This allows for only a small portion of food fill the upper part of the stomach over time making you eat less, and after a meal, the food passes through an opening in the belt to the rest of the stomach, and digestion occurs naturally after gastric band surgery.
The band is connected to a subcutaneous injection port via a soft tube, allowing the band's tightness to be adjusted by inflating or deflating the balloon.
Adjustments can be made to the belt easily, and adding saline solution to the belt makes the opening between the two parts of the stomach smaller.

What are the results of gastric band ?

The results of gastric band are highly satisfactory. According to studies that included a large number of obese patients who underwent this operation, the first months after the gastric band operation are crucial and important months, and most people lose between 50% and 60% of their excess weight during this period.
It is important to note that this type of operation does not mean that you can eat freely in the quantities you want and lose weight over time.

What is the best diet after gastric band surgery ?
