Laparoscopic gastric banding is surgery to help with weight loss. Thesurgeon places a band around the upper part of your stomach to create a small pouch to hold food. The band limits the amount of food you can eat by making you feel full after eating small amounts of food.
Filling the band – The band is made of a special rubber (silastic rubber). The inside of the band has an inflatable balloon. This allows the band to be adjusted. The doctor can decide to loosen or tighten it in the future so you can eat more or less food. The band is connected to an access port that is under the skin on your belly. The band can be tightened by placing a needle into the port and filling the balloon (band) with water. Your surgeon can make the band tighter or looser any time after you have this surgery. It may be tightened or loosened.
