Weight loss after Adjustable Gastric Banding

The effectiveness of the Adjustable Gastric Banding System depends on the success of the surgical procedure and the ability of the patient to change his / her diet and eating behavior. Patients choosing the Adjustable Gastric Band System treatment have to be committed to long-term lifestyle changes, including dietary and behavioral modifications.. Patients are encouraged to eat a balanced diet and to avoid the problematic eating patterns of their pre-surgery lifestyle. The restrictive effect of the band produces feelings of early satiety and longer-lasting fullness. This reinforces the patient’s ability to be content with smaller meals when solid food is eaten and well chewed. At the appropriate time, patients are encouraged to increase physical activity and exercise, which is very important to weight loss, good health, and improved quality of life. Patients can expect gradual weight loss up to 2 years. Patients may lose 50 % to 60% of their excess weight within 18 months after surgery. Studies with a follow-up of over 5 years confirm that weight loss is long term. Majority of weight loss occurs in the first year. Much depends on the degree of postoperative complications and patient compliance with dietary guidelines. This restrictive operation is less effective than more complex Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass in producing weight loss and is also slower. Compared to supervised dietary regimens, adjustable gastric banding is a very powerful modality for sustained and significant weight loss.
