How long does a gastric band operation take?

The surgery of the gastric band is performed with a laparoscopic technique under general anesthesia. Usually, the surgery takes from 1 to 2 hours. During the procedure, a surgeon makes 3-5 tiny incisions through which he inserts a little camera to see the surgery on a screen. Through other incisions, a surgeon puts the instruments which place the band.
