Gastric Band

We are specialists in safe non-surgical treatments to enhance your natural beauty. All the treatments offered are carried out by professionals trained specifically in the procedures offered.

A gastric band is a device placed around the top portion of the stomach to treat obesity, intended to slow consumption of food and thus the amount of food consumed.

The band is placed around the upper part of the stomach to create a smaller stomach pouch. This slows and limits the amount of food that can be consumed at one time giving the opportunity for the sense of satiety to be met with the release of PYY. It does not decrease gastric emptying time. The individual achieves sustained weight loss by choosing healthy food options, limiting food intake and volume, reducing appetite, and progress of food from the top portion of the stomach to the lower portion digestion.” ”>
