Insertion and removal of gastric band

Gastric Band Principle

Installation of a gastric band or gastroplasty in Tunisia cheap priceG astric banding or gastroplasty is a surgical treatment for obesity. These procedures are known as bariatric surgery. The procedure constricts the stomach, so a person feels full after eating less food than usual.

How does gastric banding work?

G astric banding is a type of weight loss surgery that involves placing a silicone band around the upper part of the stomach to reduce stomach size and reduce food intake.
The surgeon places the band around the upper part of the stomach and attaches a tube to the band. The tube is accessed through a port located under the skin of the abdomen.
Using this port, the surgeon injects saline solution into the headband to inflate it.
Adjustments may alter the degree of constriction around the stomach. The band creates a small gastric pouch above, with the rest of the stomach below.
Having a smaller stomach pouch reduces the amount of food the stomach can hold at any one time. The result is an increased feeling of fullness after eating a lesser amount of food. This, in turn, reduces hunger and helps reduce overall food intake.
An advantage of this form of bariatric procedure is that it allows the body to digest as normal, without malabsorption.

Gastric band pose

A gastric band is placed under general anesthesia. This is usually done in a day clinic and the individual is used to going later the same day.
The procedure is minimally invasive. It is performed through keyhole incisions. The surgeon makes between one and five small surgical cuts in the abdomen. The surgery is performed using a laparoscope, a long, narrow tube with a camera. The procedure often takes between 30 and 60 minutes.
The patient should not eat from midnight before the day of surgery. Most people can return to most normal activities within two days, but may need to be off work for a week.

At first, food intake should be limited. For the first few days, food is restricted to water and liquids, such as lean soups. Until the end of the 4 weeks, you can eat liquids and mixed foods, such as yogurt and pureed vegetables. From 4 to 6 weeks, soft foods are introduced. After 6 weeks, the person can resume a normal diet.

Who should have a gastric band?

In the past, guidelines recommended placement of a gastric band only if body mass index ( BMI ) of a person was equal to or greater than 35 . Some people with a BMI of 30 to 34.9 underwent surgery if there were other obesity-related problems, such as diabetes, hypertension, or sleep apnea. This was due to the high risk of complications.
A doctor may now recommend bariatric surgery for some people with a BMI of 30 to 35 if:
They have complications related to obesity.
Non-surgical approaches have not been shown to be effective.
Doctors do not recommend surgery for people who:
Have a drug or alcohol abuse disorder.
Suffer from an uncontrolled psychiatric illness.
Have difficulty understanding the risks and benefits, outcomes, the alternatives and lifestyle changes they will need to make.
