In the past, laparoscopically adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) was one of the most common surgeries for morbid obesity. LAGB is a restrictive procedure that was once considered a good option for treating morbid obesity. Gastric band surgery has been used in many people facing obesity problems, especially in England and Germany, before laparoscopic gastric sleeve surgery.
Unfortunately, time has revealed the high complication rates and weight loss failure associated with this procedure. As a result, it is time for revision surgery for a patient affected by these problems. The gastric band is not recommended anymore, and gastric sleeve and gastric bypass surgeries started to be performed. These revision surgeries are performed in two ways around the world. While some surgeons recommend removing the gastric band and operating again after six months, some surgeons remove the gastric band and perform bariatric surgery in the same session. For our patients with gastric banding, an endoscopy is routinely performed before the operation, and the stomach is examined. Removing the gastric band and performing a gastric sleeve or gastric bypass in the same session is a special operation. Individuals wishing to undergo this surgery should see an experienced bariatric surgeon. Not every surgeon can perform this operation. You should research the surgeon very well.
