Under the knife

For anybody who is thinking of having weight loss surgery carried out, there is a new option called bariatric surgery. With any new procedure you need to be fully informed as to what is involved, so here is an explanation. The surgeon uses an inflatable adjustable gastric band which is inserted around your stomach via small (laparoscopic) incisions. The gastric band stretches round the top half of the stomach. This creates a small stomach pouch and passageway into the lower part of the stomach. In this situation your stomach will send a message out that it is full even though you have eaten less. This makes it much easier to lose excess weight. The surgeons at Journey Lite are experts in this new operation and they can advise whether it is the right option for you.
