Gastric banding, also known as lap banding, is a procedure which aims to make you feel full after eating a small portion of food. It works by restricting the capacity of your stomach, so that you eat less and, over time, lose weight.
It takes 30-35 minutes to insert the gastric band under a general anaesthetic. Some clients may go home on the same day, others may stay overnight
