How does gastric band help lose weight?

The gastric band makes stomach sensors irritated, which reduces the feeling of hunger. So, patients are satisfied with eating very little portions. Such a sensor irritation works only for solid food. Once patients eat liquids or mashed food, the sensors do not have any pressure, so the message of feeling full is not sent to the brain. The surgeon needs to regularly adjust the gastric band (tighten or loosen it) to maintain pressure.
