During this procedure, a band is placed around the uppermost part of the stomach, dividing it into one smaller and one larger portion. The technique works by restricting how much you can consume at a meal, while helping you feel full longer. Food passes through the digestive system as usual, allowing full absorption.
The band can be adjusted with a simple in-office procedure to increase or decrease restriction. You’ll be followed closely within the first year after surgery for adjustments as needed. Lifelong adjustments may be required to maintain success.
