Gastric Band Tijuana

VIVE BARIATRIC

Gastric Band, also known as Lap-Band, is a Bariatric surgery for reducing the size of the stomach, eliminate the feeling of hunger, and get an effective and fast weight-loss.

 

The procedure consists of placing an inflatable belt around the top of the stomach to create a lesser area for food consumption.

 

The material of the Lap-Band is silicone. The doctor may expand or stretch it according to the condition of the patient and following a plan for weight reduction.

 

The action of this device is physical because it restricts the area of the stomach and reduces the amount of food that the patient can eat.

  • The insertion of the Gastric Band is a less invasive procedure, practiced under general anesthesia, and using the Laparoscopy technique.

 

  • Laparoscopic surgery means that the doctor will not make large incisions but five or six incisions less than 1 cm long, which will heal quickly and with unnoticed scars.

 

  • The medical team introduces a tiny TV camera that allows them to operate from outside of the body using small instruments.

 

  • Regularly, the operation takes less than 45 minutes.

 

  • Using one of the incisions and watching by a TV monitor, the surgeon inserts the lap band and place it around the top of the stomach, about five centimeters below the esophagus.

 

  • As a result, the band will stretch the stomach creating a pouch and leaving a small place for the food.

 

  • The Lap is inflatable, and the surgeon will fill it with saline to get the desired size according to the patient’s condition.

 

  • Finally, the doctor will leave an access port under your skin, for making corrections in the saline amount and size of the band after the surgery.

 

  • Regularly, Gastric Band is an outpatient procedure, which means that the patient may go back home the same day without staying at the hospital.
