Gastric banding means that a band will be put into your stomach that will restrict its capacity to take in a lot of food. It is a very popular way of losing weight and can be performed laparoscopically which basically means that the surgeon will make small incisions instead of a large one. Gastric band surgery helps to lose weight by restricting the upper part of your stomach so you feel full by eating a lot less, and though you will eat less you´ll lose weight but will not feel hungry. The gastric band can be adjustable so it allows your surgeon to change the tightness of it. It is reversible as well, so when you are done with the dieting, you just have it removed.
