What is an Adjustable Gastric Band?
Obesity is a disease where the body has an excessive amount of body fat. It is a real medical problem that increases the risk of other diseases and health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, certain cancers and heart disease. Adjustable Gastric Banding is a surgical solution for obesity, the procedure is known as a bariatric surgery. People who are obese can have a silcone band around the upper part of their stomach to decrease stomach size and reduce food intake as this decreases their appetite resulting in weight loss. This surgery is recommended for people of body mass index (BMI) 35 and above but may also be used on those with a BMI of 30-35 if they have obesity-related complications and non-surgical approaches do not work (dietary changes, medications, physical activity).
After the procedure is done, for the first few days, the diet is restricted to water and fluids like thin soups. Then for 4 weeks, liquids and blended foods such as yogurt. For 4 to 6 weeks, soft foods can be eaten. After 6 weeks, a normal diet is restored.
