Gastric band surgery is fast becoming one of the most common and high-profile forms of weight loss surgery in the UK. The surgery has become renowned for its fast results and high success rates, with more and more people opting for it over traditional weight-loss techniques such as dieting and exercise. The surgery involves a band being placed around the stomach to reduce its size and therefore diminish appetites, with the patient consuming smaller meals than they otherwise would. Fewer calories are consumed and the vast majority of patients are satisfied with the results, feeling no need to go ahead with gastric band claims.
