Everything You Should Know about Gastric Banding Surgery

It may not be the most exciting lesson ever, but if you are thinking about having any type of gastric band surgery, then you want to know everything you can about the gastric band. You should be well-informed when it comes to having any surgery performed on your body.

Although banding did not receive FDA approval in the United States until 2001, the first gastric band was patented in 1985 in Sweden. It really is the least that Europe could do for the rest of the world, considering that the finest chocolates do come from Europe and contribute to the world's obesity problem.

The gastric band surgery (or the Lap-Band as some like to call it) is an option for individuals who a BMI over forty and are least one hundred pounds over their recommended body weights. It is also a possible weight loss alternative for people who have serious conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure, which could possibly be eliminated by a gastric band procedure. This type of treatment is not recommended for those with severe cardiac or respiratory illnesses or for people who can maintain healthy body weights with a proper diet and exercise program.

Even though it is a minor surgery, an experienced, specialized bariatric surgeon must perform the procedure. He or she does this by placing an adjustable gastric band around the top of the stomach using laparoscopic technology (which involves only a small incision). Once the stomach has been restricted in size, the amount of food a person can take in decreases. As a result of this decrease in calories and a well-structured exercise routine, a person can lose weight and keep it off.

Of course, this is easier read than done. After surgery, even though you can normally go home within 24 hours, your diet is going to completely change. For a few weeks after the surgery, you will exist only on a liquid diet. This will be trailed by a soft foods diet until your doctor releases you to “normal” meals. This diet will be very high in protein and will undoubtedly exclude all your favorite foods that you used to eat so be prepared for this. If you can stick to your new diet and exercise regularly, you weight loss dream will become reality.

Every day, healthcare, insurance polices are changing. Even if your insurance company may not pay for your entire gastric procedure, it may pay for a portion. If the band is not covered by your insurer, there are even healthcare, financing companies that will help you get the treatment. If you believe that a bariatric surgery can help change your life, let nothing stop you from getting one.
