Gastric banding surgery in Bangkok, Thailand is one of a series of several different weight loss surgical procedures. The surgery itself involves the insertion of a laparoscopic adjustable gastric band, which is a surgical device that consists of a thin, hollow silicone rubber ring accompanied by a small tube. The ring, when inserted into a small incision and fitted around the stomach, restricts the amount of food and caloric intake, allowing patients to feel fuller more quickly and consume fewer calories, aiding in weight loss. The tube includes a small port that is positioned just below the skin that can be used to fill the ring with saline and increase the amount of food and caloric restriction.
WHAT GASTRIC BANDING SURGERY INVOLVES?
Patients are recommended to discuss all options with the specialist, read the device’s patient labeling to become informed of the risks and benefits of the procedure and ask further questions to the surgeon. Once these steps are completed and both the physician and patient agree to insertion of the gastric band, it is usually placed through laparoscopic surgery.
The laparoscopic surgery takes only about an hour and is performed with the patient asleep under general anesthesia. Between one and five small incisions are made in the patient’s abdomen and the surgeon inserts a small camera and surgical instruments into the abdominal cavity in order to correctly place the adjustable silicone band. Patients are often sent home the same day after the procedure and are able to work few days later.
When you eat after having this surgery, the small pouch will fill up quickly. You will feel full after eating just a small amount of food. The food in the small upper pouch will slowly empty into the main part of your stomach.
