Laparoscopic Gastric Banding (Lap Band or Realise Band)

Comparatively the least invasive surgery for weight loss, in this procedure a silicone ring with an inflatable balloon in its centre is inserted around the upper part of your stomach. This divides your stomach into two sections, where the part above the band is smaller. You consume food to only fill the upper part of your stomach. Afterwards, the food goes through the band opening into the rest of the stomach and digestion takes place as usual.
