In this process, a silicon ring, also known as Lap ring is filled with saline on its internal surface and is placed around the upper part of your stomach. Thus, it divides the stomach into two parts and creates a small pouch that can store less food at a time. The connectivity between these two sections of stomach is known as stoma. Lap band also slows down the rate of flow of food from upper to lower part of stomach. Therefore, it takes longer time for the food to get digested and thus you do not feel hungry frequently and thereby eat less.
Now,how is this process different from the normal gastric bypass surgeries? Here, surgeons use laproscopic techniques to insert the lap ring around the stomach. This means that, there are considerable smaller incisions made on ones belly as compared to conventional methods used.
A narrow camera that is connected to a video monitor is also inserted by surgeons, so that they can view the internal area under operation. It is important , as the process makes tiny incisions on particular areas, nearby areas cannot be viewed through these openings.
The band is connected to a port that is placed under the abdominal skin. Surgeons can regulate the size of pouch by adding or subtracting saline through this port. This helps to determine the rate of weight-loss and make necessary adjustments as and when required.
Cost of Lap Band Surgery in India ranges between INR 1,50,000 to INR 4,50,000.
Since this process does not cut open the stomach entirely; several complex procedures, namely; gastrointestinal re-routing, stapling etc. are not required. It also restricts the number of post operative stitches and pain on your belly. It facilitates quick recovery and shorter stay at hospital after operation.
