Weight Loss SymbolGastric Bypass Failure

gastric bypass failure

Gastric bypass patients may also choose to have a gastric band if they are experiencing pouch dilatation and can eat a lot more than they could after their initial bypass surgery.

Adjustable gastric banding / gastric bands  (sometimes known as a lap band) is a restrictive weight loss surgery procedure and will be places around the original bypass pouch.

The adjustable gastric banding can then be tightened or loosened depending on your restriction and will need regular adjustments. 

An adjustment reduces the size of the opening in to the rest of the stomach below the band. This is done via the port (button like) which is connected to the band by a small, thin tube and positioned under the skin and fat. This is not visible.

This weight loss surgery operation takes approximately 45 mins to 1 hour and requires one night stay in hospital. 

We also ensure you receive comprehensive guidelines for post-surgical compliance appropriate to the procedure you have chosen to have – it needs to work for you.

Are adjustments painful?

Adjustments to gastric bands are fairly pain free and will be carried out by our own team of specialists, until the right restriction for you is established. 

The number of adjustments needed to gastric bands can be different for each patient. 

Like any weight loss surgery and surgical procedure, there are possible risks and complications which will be discussed with you at your initial consultation. They are rare and everything possible will be done to prevent them from occurring. The gastric band procedure is reversible.
