The gastric balloon means that you do not have to undergo surgery, which can be risky. You are not treated as an in-patient which means a quick procedure followed by a short recovery period. You can return to work very quickly. The balloon means that you will have to eat smaller portions, although you can a wide range of foods. Try to avoid high fat, sugary foods as these can make you feel nauseous.
In terms of weight loss you are looking at, on average, 35-40% weight loss following this procedure. It can also improve any obesity-related conditions such as sleep apnoea, high blood pressure, stroke, Type 2 diabetes and arthritis. Another benefit is that you do not have to take a daily nutritional supplement.
This is the ‘million dollar’ question everyone wants an answer to, the fact is that weight loss results will vary from client to client, the amount of weight lost will depend on a variety of factors. Your gastric band will be adjusted according to your stomach anatomy and the amount of weight you need / want to lose. Of course a large degree of the success you achieve will be directly related to how closely you work with your gastric band and adopt new lifestyle and healthy eating habits. There is no such thing as a miracle cure for obesity, but the gastric band is a very popular method and has helped over 600,000 people to change their lives completely. Weight loss of approximately two to three pounds a week in the first year after the operation is likely, but one pound a week is also normal; it all depends on your food intake. The average total weight loss with most clients is between 6 to 15 stones (84lbs/38kg to 210lbs/95kgs) spread over 1 to 3 years
The gastric band surgery is performed laparoscopically, patients typically spend one to 3 days at our clinic after their procedure. Most people can return to work approximately 1 week after their procedure.
Yes, the procedure is designed to be reversible.
The gastric band will help you to eat much less and also feel full quicker, working in two ways; firstly by reducing the capacity of your stomach and second by increasing the time it takes food to travel through your digestive system. For example, after a small meal, you should feel full. If you follow the nutritional guidelines when choosing your food and you chew it well, you should not feel hungry or deprived. Remember that the gastric band should be regarded as a tool to help you change your eating habits and your relationship with food.
It is normal for clients to need one or perhaps two band adjustments within the first year and less in years two and three, depending on the individual case.
Adjustments are performed quickly and easily using a very thin needle to inject or withdraw saline solution from your band via your access port. This can be done quickly in an office setting or can be carried with the X-ray assistance (using flouroscopy) at one of our partner clinics near you. Most adjustments take only a few minutes and patients report that they are virtually painless.
You can eat most foods that don’t cause you discomfort. Because you can only eat a little food at any given time, it is important that you include foods that are rich in vital and important vitamins and nutrients, foods such as those recommended by your surgeon and/or nutritionist. If you eat foods that contain lots of sugar and fat or drink liquids full of empty calories (beer/wine/cider, spirits), milkshakes, ice-cream, liquidised Mars bars, etc. the effect of the gastric band may be greatly reduced or even cancelled out completely.
If you are trying to become pregnant, you will normally find it easier once you have lost weight as your menstrual cycle will most likely become more regular. Also, if you need to eat more while you are pregnant, the band can be loosened. After pregnancy, the band may be tightened again so that you can resume your weight loss.
Yes, this is very important! As it is possible that you may not get enough essential vitamins and minerals from three small meals a day, which could in turn create health related problems.
You should not have any activity restrictions based on your access port. Your access port is placed under the skin in the abdominal wall area, and once the incisions have healed the access port should not cause you any discomfort or limit any physical exercise. The only sensation you should experience from the your port will normally only occur if you have a band adjustment.
Alcohol has a high number of ‘dead’ calories and it can rob the body of essential vitamins and minerals, so it is never recommended as a healthy option. However, an occasional glass of wine or beer, or other alcoholic drink, should not significantly affect your weight loss.
Problems that can arise, from time to time (albeit rarely), are ‘band slippage’ and ‘port detachment’ these rare occurrences can be easily rectified and in these circumstances corrective procedure(s) would be carried out at our clinic.
