How is the Gastric Lap-Band surgery done?
This surgery is performed under general anesthesia, where three to five incisions of one-half to two inches are made in the upper abdomen, allowing our doctor to use specialized tools to place a gastric band which contains a small balloon around the top portion of the stomach, forming a smaller gastric pouch.
Once the lap-band is in place, the pouch is filled with a saline solution through an injection port, which is attached to the abdominal wall under the skin. The saline expands the band and places pressure around the outside of the stomach, this decreases the size of the passage between the pouch and the lower stomach, restricting the movement of food. Using the injection port, the amount of saline in the band can be easily adjusted to create the passage optimal for maintaining consistent weight-loss.
