Adjustable gastric banding
Commonly known as Slimband® or Lap-Band®, this obesity treatment involves placing a silicone band around the top of the stomach in a 30-minute surgical procedure. The band, which can be adjusted over time, restricts the passage of food into the stomach, making patients feel full faster.
A process that involves making the stomach smaller by dividing it, creating a smaller upper portion, or “pouch,” and a larger bottom section. The surgeon then connects part of the small intestine to the pouch. The result is that patients feel full with less food and the body absorbs fewer calories.
This process involves placing a balloon into the stomach and then inflating it using saline. The balloon is inserted through the mouth and can remain in place for up to six months.
Weight loss programs
Structured plans aimed at reducing a person’s weight, typically using diets, food supplements, exercise or a combination of these elements. These plans can also be medically supervised.
