Adjustable Gastric Banding

The official name is Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding.

It is performed through the laparoscope.

Since we do not cut the abdomen open,
time required for the surgery is short and postoperative
pain and complications are minimal,
and time for recovery is shortened.

It is adjustable.

Since the inner diameter of the band can be adjusted
depending on the characteristics and circumstances
of each individual patient, procedures can be customized.

Band is installed in the upper part of the stomach.

As the band is installed at the top of stomach, the capacity of the stomach is significantly reduced (15-20cc). In addition, if the band is no longer required, it can be removed. After removal, you can return to the original state before the surgery.

Principle of adjustable gastric banding

The principle of adjustable gastric banding allows patients to feel full and satisfied and keep this feeling for a long time with a small amount of food by reducing the volume of the stomach and controlling the speed at which food runs down below the band by wrapping the area between the top of the stomach and the bottom of the esophagus with the band made of medical silicone. As a result, as food intake is naturally reduced, you will lose body fat steadily and effectively. In addition, when the band is completely loosened, you can eat meals in quantities as you did before the surgery. However, if the band is appropriately adjusted, you cannot eat meals in a hurry. In other words, it can help you stick to your diet by minimizing hunger.
