Specialists in Fitting Gastric Bands in Ilford, Essex, and covering the whole of the South East.

Gastric band surgery is designed to aid patients with their weight-loss programme. At London Obesity Clinic, in Ilford, Essex, covering the whole of the South East our consultant surgeon completes gastric band surgeries, which involve an adjustable band being fitted around the patient’s stomach. It reduces the size of their stomach in order to reduce the amount they can eat at each meal. Gastric bands are just one of the bariatric procedures that we conduct, with others including gastric sleeve and gastric bypass surgeries.

About the Procedure

The gastric band procedure is performed laparoscopically and is usually completed in between 30 minutes and hour. During the procedure, you will be given general anaesthetic. After gastric band surgery, most patients will be able to lose around half of their unwanted weight. The gastric band should help by restricting the amount you can eat at each meal, but in order to lose weight you will have to eat a carefully designed diet.
