Gastric Banding Surgery

Gastric banding surgery is more commonly known as the Lap-Band system, a specific brand of implants used in the surgery. Only one other brand, the REALIZE system, is FDA approved for weight loss surgery.

Gastric band surgery uses the restrictive technique to achieve weight loss. The restrictive technique is accomplished by placing an implant around the upper part of a patient’s stomach. This restriction on the stomach creates a smaller capacity of the stomach which will produce smaller caloric intake.

Is Gastric Banding Still Relevant?

More and more top Mexico weight loss surgeons, including Dr. Jacqueline Osuna, are urging patients not to undergo gastric banding surgery. Many patients will eventually have to remove the gastric banding surgery because of some sort of complication. Some patients will develop complications even after the removal of the Lap-Band for instance acid reflux disease complications.

More surgeons are recommending the gastric sleeve surgery over gastric lap band While there is an obvious financial incentive, that of which not having to get the band removed, gastric sleeve surgery in Mexico can provide just as much expected weight loss with less hassle, and comes with fewer complications.
