    What is a gastric band?

    A gastric band in Tunisia makes it possible to reduce the size of the stomach by placing a gastric band around the upper part of the stomach, thus forming a small gastric pouch.

    As only a few nutrients are needed to fill this pouch, satiety is quickly achieved. This restrictive technique allows the passage of food to be slowed by a slower flow that does not disrupt digestion.

    Gastric banding in Tunisia is aimed at people aged 18 and over who have tried several weight-loss diets and have been suffering from massive obesity for at least 5 years, and whose body mass index (BMI) is greater than or equal to 40 kg/m2, which is 45 kg (100 pounds) more than their normal weight.

    Gastric band procedure

    Unlike sleeve and bypass operations, which are irreversible techniques, gastric banding is the only adjustable technique where the band can be tightened and loosened thanks to a small silicone tube connecting the band to a control box under the skin. Fluid is injected into the box through the skin to provide the necessary adjustment.

    At the patient’s request, in the event of ineffectiveness or complications, the bariatric surgeon can remove the band during a new operation.

    Expected results of weight loss surgery

    For a person with an average height of 1.70 m and a BMI of 40 kg/m2, a weight loss of 20 to 30 kg can be expected after 6 months, which corresponds approximately to a loss of 40 to 60% of the excess weight. Return to a normal weight if the band is removed.

    Before a gastric band is fitted

    The pre-operative check-up requested by the surgeon before the operation includes a blood, neurological and endocrinological check-up and a gastric endoscopy.
