Description Of The Operation

Gastric Banding(GB) forms part of the so-called "restrictive" operations and consists of the positioning of a "band" around the upper part of the stomach attached so as to create the shape of an "egg-timer", with the upper part very small.

The intervention does not modify the anatomy in a definitive way. The banding can be adjusted so as to make it suited to the needs of body-weight loss.
The gastric bending provokes a premature sense of being full that reduces the food quantity, and therefore the weight of calories introduced.

The Results

It is fundamental that the patient collaborates in order to obtain good results, following the rules that are supplied by the specialists.

It is not only about reducing the quantity of food eaten, but above all it is about modifying one's eating habits. A correct food intake will be necessary also to maintain the results obtained over a period of time.

Gastric banding generates a good weight loss: the percentage of excess weight lost is in the order of 45% after a year, reaching up 65-70% after four years .
