Adjustable Gastric Lap Band Surgery, Explained
Adjustable gastric lap band surgery is a specific surgical technique in the field of bariatrics. Bariatric surgery refers to any surgical weight loss procedure, so gastric lap band surgery helps you restrict the amount of food you eat. During laparoscopic gastric banding, your surgeon places an inflatable band around the upper section of your stomach.
The small band contains a volume of fluid that your doctor can adjust if necessary. The more fluid in the band, the more restricted your food intake becomes. If the band proves too tight, it may prevent sufficient food intake or cause digestive problems. But your bariatric specialist has the ability to remove some fluid too.
