Gastric Banding surgery or bariatric surgery is a weight-loss surgical treatment for people suffering from obesity.
During this surgery, the doctors place a silicone band around the upper part of your stomach, it helps to constrict or decrease the size of your stomach so that the patient will not be able to do overeating and feel full after consuming less amount of food. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved stomach band Dubai as a weight loss treatment for obese people.
Under this surgery, the surgeon will place a silicone band around your upper part of the stomach and a tube is attached to the band inserted through a port under the skin of the abdomen. In order to inflate the silicon band, the doctor injects a saline solution using the port. The placing of the band around the stomach results in creating a small pouch on the upper portion of the stomach to carry a small amount of food. Due to this, the patient will feel very full after eating a small amount of food and therefore, reducing over-eating. The surgery is performed using a laparoscope, where the surgeon makes 4 to 6 small surgical cuts in your belly to insert a tiny camera and see the insides of your stomach. The patient is given general anesthesia, a medicine to make the patient asleep and comfortable during the surgery.
After the surgery gets completed, your doctor will provide a list of food and supplements to be taken during your recovery period. Just after the surgery, you will be required to have only water and fluids such as soup because your stomach will start healing at that time. Then, after a few weeks, you will be allowed to have pureed vegetables and blended food such as yogurt. After 4 to 6 weeks, you can have soft food and thereafter switch to a normal diet after the 6 th week of time.
