gastric bandAs America’s waistbands are expanding, more and more people are turning to weight loss surgery as a way to help them lose weight and get healthy.

The proposed reasons for the rising levels in obesity are varied; genetics, convenience food, increasingly sedentary lifestyles, and just being too busy to fit in regular exercise and healthy eating all play a part in the gradual weight gain that many of us experience.

If you are obese, the risks of developing serious health issues such as heart problems, joint problems and cancer increase dramatically. It can be hard to lose the weight alone and most overweight people report unsuccessful attempts at dieting, or losing weight only to put it back on again.

For most, losing weight and keeping weight off requires much more than a diet and there is certainly no “quick fix” to obesity. What is needed is a complete lifestyle change, with altered eating habits that will lead to weight loss, which in turn will lead to being more physically active and more weight loss.

A gastric band is a highly effective way of losing weight by reducing the size of the stomach. If you have a BMI of over 40, or over 35 and have a serious obesity-related condition, the gastric band could be the best option for you, helping you to lose weight and regain your health. Research shows that the benefits of gastric band surgery last for years and that lap band surgery is an effective, long term solution for many obese individuals.

How Does It Work?

Gastric Lap Band ® surgery is a minimally invasive surgery that reduces the size of your stomach by inserting a band around your stomach to create a pouch. When you eat, the band will control the rate at which food is passed from the pouch into your stomach. This will make you feel full more quickly, and for longer.  Although the band is inserted and tightened according to your needs, your surgeon will be able to adjust, or even remove the band at a later date if required.

If you choose to have a gastric Lap Band ® fitted you will be able to lose weight by consistently eating less. The great thing is, even if you really want to eat more, but know you shouldn’t, your lap band won’t let you.
