That is why bariatric surgery is shown as an elective procedure to help lose weight, by reducing the size of the stomach. This surgical technique is not often covered by health institutions in the United States; consequently, its cost in the market is usually very high, leading to canceling amounts of 25,000 USD. However, with Health & Wellness Bazaar, you can travel to Mexico to go through this surgical treatment with the trust that you’ll be in the best hands, and knowing that you’ll save 80 % of the total cost.

The gastric band done with laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgery, and its goal is to make the stomach smaller, limiting the absorption of calories. A stomach with smaller proportions will make you feel satisfied faster than usual; but, this is also serious of significant changes in your lives, like a daily exercise plan, healthy diet that also includes smaller portions of different food, with the final goal of losing weight.

During the procedure, our surgeons will put a gastric band around the upper part of the stomach; with this they’ll create a small bag to contain food. This technique limits the amount of food that you’ll be capable of swallowing, making you feel full with smaller portions. This is an adjustable surgery that its purpose is to make you lose extra pounds and, with this, minimizing the health risks associated with obesity since it’s already linked with an array of different and potentially deadly illnesses like diabetes, cancer, and coronary pathologies. The gastric band, in addition, is right for you if you’re between the ages of 15 and 54 years old, if your BMI is 30 or more or if you already have a severe health problem, like the aforementioned: type II diabetes, high blood pressure or severe sleep apnea, a medical condition that interrupts your breathing at night.

RESULTS OF THE GASTRIC BAND

After the surgery, the gastric band will help you lose weight on an ongoing basis; however, weight loss is more significant with a gastric bypass, but it is enough for people with obesity that are looking to change their lifestyles. After the surgery, you will notice the results. Our doctors can adjust the band if you’re not losing weight how you expected or if you’re having any problems with the gastric band. It is even possible to lose only half of the expected weight or more than the standard. It will all depend on how your body reacts, which is why you must be in touch with the specialists.

On the other hand, while weight loss is the most significant benefit of the gastric band surgery, there are others, like the disappearance of medical problems like gastroesophageal reflux, coronary pathologies, lowering of blood pressure, severe sleep apnea, type II diabetes, and generally, a betterment of overall quality of life, self-assurance and autonomy.

GASTRIC LAP BAND RESULTS

Weight-loss with the gastric band is not a big as with gastric bypass, but it is sufficient for the majority of individuals looking to lose weight and improve their lifestyle. After this surgery, weight loss is usually gradual but steady. You will have regular visits with your doctor to check how you are doing. The doctor can adjust the band if you are not losing weight as expected or if you have problems with the band. It may be possible to lose half, or even more, of your excess weight within two years.
