What you need to know about Gastric Band Surgery in Abu Dhabi

A gastric band is a type of bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) to treat obesity. This procedure involves placing an inflatable silicone band at the upper part of the stomach to reduce the size of your stomach and reduce food intake, so you will feel full after eating less food. Unlike many other types of bariatric surgery, such as Gastric Bypass, this procedure is minimally invasive, quick, reversible, and adjustable.

Your doctor may recommend gastric band surgery for you if your body mass index (BMI) is 30 – 35, non-surgical approaches (such as regular exercise and dietary changes) have not proven effective, and/or you have obesity-related diseases. However, doctors do not recommend this procedure for people who have current alcohol or drug abuse disorder and people who have an uncontrolled psychiatric illness.

After gastric band surgery, you will slowly lose your excess weight and your risk of developing weight-related diseases, such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease, is significantly reduced. You will be able to lead a more active life and enjoy numerous activities you could not do before, such as sports.

What's the Recovery Time for Gastric Band Surgery Procedures in Abu Dhabi?

The recovery time after gastric band surgery is relatively short and easier than most other types of bariatric surgery. You should be able to resume your normal activities within 2 days. However, you should wait at least a week until you can go back to work, particularly if your job is physically demanding.

What's the Success Rate of Gastric Band Surgery Procedures in Abu Dhabi?

On average, you should be able to lose 40% to 60% of your excess weight after gastric band surgery. Most people lose about 0.5 kg to 1 kg each week following the surgery. One year after the surgery, you can expect to have lost between 22 kg and 45 kg of your excess weight. In order to accomplish long-term weight loss, you will need to be committed to maintaining a healthier lifestyle, by following a healthy diet and exercise regularly. It is important to bear in mind that gastric band surgery is a tool that will help you lose weight, instead of a shortcut.

Before considering the surgery, you need to be aware of the risks associated with having a gastric band, which may include:

  • An adverse reaction to anesthesia, such as breathing problems, blood clots, allergic reactions, infection, heart attack, and stroke.
  • Slower weight loss compared to other types of bariatric surgery.
  • The band can have mechanical problems, slip, or erode into the stomach.
  • Injury to other abdominal organs.
  • Hernia.
  • Stomach ulcers, gastritis, and heartburn.
  • Wound infection.
  • Gastrointestinal scarring.
  • Poorer nutrition as a result of restricted food intake.
