Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding

There are many different types of bariatric surgery. One of the better-known surgical plans is gastric banding. Men and women should consider this option carefully before moving forward. First, it's important to understand what this procedure does and what kind of results you can expect. During the procedure, a hollow band is placed around the stomach. It will restrict the size of the organ at its upper end. This creates a more narrow passage to the rest of the stomach. Before the procedure is complete, your doctor will fill the band with a saline solution. This will allow adjustments over time, helping to change the size of the restriction as necessary.
