In this procedure, an adjustable silicon band is placed around the upper end of the stomach which helps to regulate food intake and provide a sense of satiety to the patient. There is no cutting of stomach or bypass of the intestine which makes it one of the fastest and safest bariatric procedures to perform. The amount of fluid which is present within the band can adjusted from an access port placed under the skin. Through this, the band can loosened or tightened as per the requirement of the patient and this regulates the weight loss. This also means that the patient has to periodically follow up with the bariatric surgeon which often creates difficulties for people from far off places.
