How does the lap band work?
How does a gastric band work?
Thanks to the gastric band, a small pouch on the upper part of the stomach is created. It causes the stomach to fill up very quickly making patients feel full much earlier than normal. Patients are able to eat only tiny amounts of food and the feeling of fullness appears very quickly. A surgeon may loosen or tighten the gastric band to moderate how much food can pass from the upper to the lower part of the stomach. Of course, the desired results may be achieved only when patients follow a recommended diet and keep healthy habits after the recovery time.
