A Gastric Band procedure is a clinically proven* weight loss technique which combined with a supervised diet, activity and lifestyle programme is an extremely effective way to lose unwanted weight.
The procedure is best suited for those patients with a BMI over 30 and can help patients lose significant weight (Source British Obesity and Metabolic Society*). It involves an adjustable silicon band being inserted by your surgeon using key-hole surgery to restrict the size of the upper stomach. This means that your stomach capacity is reduced and you will feel fuller more quickly.

Key Conclusions: Bariatric surgery as delivered in the UK healthcare system is associated with dramatic weight loss, sustained at least 4 y after surgery. This weight loss is accompanied by substantial improvements in pre-existing T2DM and hypertension, as well as a reduced risk of incident T2DM, hypertension, angina, MI, and obstructive sleep apnoea. Widening the availability of bariatric surgery could lead to substantial health benefits for many people who are morbidly obese.
** This is a medically supervised weight loss programme. The amount of weight loss achieved is variable and depends on complying with dietary advice and following a healthy lifestyle.
