Laparoscopic removal of the gastric band

The treatment is dedicated to people who wear stomach bands. After removing the band, the stomach returns to its original shape, and the digestive system functions normally. The patient should bear in mind that after removing the band it is very likely that he will return to his weight before surgery.

The operation to remove the band on the stomach is performed under general anesthesia and lasts about 90 minutes. After surgery, the patient must remain in hospital for several days for safety reasons. Return to full activity, however, takes several weeks. There may be abdominal pain immediately after the surgery.

Comprehensive tests and consultations are required to qualify and prepare for bariatric surgery for patient safety.

All consultations and tests can be done at KCM Clinic.

The most important change in life after surgery is diet and the amount of food you eat. The diet will also help prevent postoperative complications. A very strict diet after surgery may seem exaggerated. However, it should be remembered that not following this diet can cause complications such as diarrhea, dehydration, constipation, intestinal obstruction or very serious gastric leakage.

People suffering from comorbidities should consult their GP or cardiologist before undergoing gastric band removal.

There may be abdominal pain immediately after the surgery. To prevent them, painkillers are given. On the same day, the patient can move independently.

Laparoscopy allows the patient to return to a normal lifestyle much faster. Usually, a week after surgery, the patient returns to work except for hard physical work, without pain.
