WHAT IS AN ADJUSTABLE GASTRIC BAND?

Gastric banding in Dubai is considered to be the least invasive weight loss surgery. The procedure involves placing a small band of inflatable silicone around the top of the stomach, creating two compartments, with the smaller one at the top, which significantly reduces the amount of food your stomach can hold.

The gastric band procedure in Dubai is also part of our weight loss and obesity programme, which includes an optional 6-month support programme after the operation, to ensure you have the best chance of achieving your weight loss goals.

WHY IS THE OPERATION PERFORMED?

Gastric banding will help you lose weight by limiting the amount of food you can eat. In general, this procedure in Dubai allows you to lose weight temporarily, while adopting healthy eating habits and exercising.

WHO IS THE SURGERY RECOMMENDED FOR?

Gastric banding is especially recommended if you suffer from morbid obesity or if you want a temporary weight-loss option to combine with lifestyle changes. In all cases, your doctor can decide whether or not the operation is beneficial for you. The following conditions must be met in order to benefit from the procedure:

  • BMI between 30 and 40.
  • Serious health problems linked to obesity.
  • No history of gastrointestinal disease, drug or alcohol abuse.
  • Commitment to a healthy lifestyle change.

BENEFITS AND POTENTIAL RESULTS

Gastric banding can be a very effective way of losing weight, depending on the extent to which you change your lifestyle habits. Using this method, the average weight loss is around 30-60% of your excess weight over a six-month period.

The following health conditions can also be improved as a result:

  • Diabetes.
  • Hypertension.
  • Hyperlipidaemia.
  • Heart disease.
  • Sleep apnoea.
  • Osteoarticular diseases.

RISKS

The adjustable gastric band is a safe procedure with a minimal complication rate. Some complications include infection of the band or port and vomiting. The most serious complication is band erosion, but this is extremely rare.

BEFORE SURGERY

In order to be selected as a valid candidate for the procedure, your doctor in Dubai may require certain laboratory tests. The night before surgery, you are not allowed to consume any food or liquids after midnight.

DURING THE OPERATION

The adjustable gastric band in Dubai is a minimally invasive procedure performed by a bariatric physician. The procedure involves the following steps:

  • A small inflatable band is placed around the upper part of the stomach through a tiny incision in the abdomen.
  • The band is connected by a small tube placed under the skin.
  • The band is filled with saline solution, which can be removed or added as required through the small tube.

During the procedure, you will sleep under general anaesthetic and be monitored closely to avoid any complications. The whole procedure will take approximately one hour.

AFTER THE SURGERY

Immediately after the operation, you will not be allowed to eat or drink for about 8 hours. After that, your diet will gradually change from liquid to solid and the amount of food you eat will also change. Most people go home the same day and it takes about a week to fully recover from the procedure at home and return to work.

Finally, you will need some follow-up to adjust the band after the operation and ensure optimal weight loss.
