Lap Band Surgery/Gastric Band Surgery Sydney
Lap band surgery or Gastric band surgery helps people lose weight by helping them feel full most of the time.
The gastric band is an inflatable plastic band which is placed around the top of the stomach. This restricts the stomach to being a small pouch above the band. Effectively, the stomach becomes slightly less than the size of a tennis ball.
With a much smaller stomach, people who have had Lap band surgery or Gastric band surgery can’t eat much more than a handful of food before they are completely full. If they do eat more than their new smaller stomach allows, they may experience stomach pain and/or emesis (vomiting).
The Gastric band is adjustable to suit you and your needs. If you are eating too much (including fluids), we can tighten the band, or if you find it hard to keep food down, we can loosen the band. Lap band surgery or gastric banding is suitable for the morbidly obese.
Please consult your doctor or contact us for a consultation about the best weight loss options for you.
