PLEASE NOTE: WE NO LONGER OFFER THE GASTRIC BAND AND THIS IS FOR INFORMATION ONLY
The gastric band converts the stomach from a 2 litre sac to a 30cc pouch by means of a silicone collar placed around the top part of the stomach. Adjusting the diameter of the collar by means of a subcutaneous saline-filled port controls the restriction of flow of food through the pouch to the remaining stomach. Once the band is adjusted to optimal diameter then hunger and satiety are controlled so maximising weight loss. An average of 50-60% excess body weight loss can be expected.
