Adjustable gastric banding is just a restrictive weight reduction approach that functions by decreasing the quantity of diet and causing you to feel full sooner. In lap band surgery, three to five small incisions of a few centimeters long are made in the belly and a small pouch is created in the upper element of the stomach using a controlled and adjustable stoma.
That bag or altered stomach substantially reduces the functional capacity of the stomach, which leads to the slowing down of digestion that prolongs the time scale of fullness and reduces the appetite.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the lap band surgery in 2001 to be used in severely obese patients that are having a body mass index (BMI) of more than 40 and those of age group 35 to 40 with one or more weight-related diseases.
