The placement of the gastric lap band creates a small pouch at the top of the stomachwhich holds approximately 50mls. This pouch ‘fills’ with food quickly and the passage of food from the top to the bottom of the stomach is slowed. As the upper part of the stomach believes it is full the message to the brain is that the stomach is full and this sensation helps the person to eat smaller portions, eat less and therefore lose weight over time.

The the gastric lap band is then inflated and adjusted via a small access port placed just under the skin subcutaneously on the abdomen. A Radio opaque isotonic solution orsaline solution is introduced into the gastric band via the port. A specialized needle is used to avoid damage to the port membrane. There are many port designs and they may be placed in varying positions based on the surgeons preference. The port may be sutured in place. When fluid is introduced the bariatric lap band expands placing additional pressure around the outside of the stomach. This decreases the size of the passage in the stomach and restricts the movement of food.

Over a period of time the restriction is increased by adjusting the gastric band until patients feel they have reached a sweet spot where optimal weight loss can be reached with the minimal fluid required.

This is an individual experience and timing cannot be predicted. The amount of fluid required in the gastric band is varied.

If considering pregnancy the patient should be in optimum nutritional status prior to conception, and deflation of the band may be required prior to conception. The gastric band may remain deflated during pregnancy and once breast feeding is completed the gastric lap band may be gradually re-inflated to aid post pregancy weight loss if needed.
