Overview

  • In this procedure a band is placed in the upper part of the stomach, dividing it into two sections
  • There is a small opening between the sections, allowing the food to pass through
  • The section above the band acts like the stomach that fills with food quickly
  • As this section of the stomach is filled and stretched, signals are sent to the satiety centre of the brain causing you to feel satisfied for several hours
  • This surgery does not restrict the quality of food intake and high calorie liquid intake may hinder weight loss
