If you have a Gastric Band (Lap-Band) then we can adjust the amount of fluid in the band for you. It is important for successful weight loss that you have ongoing follow-up. This can be difficult if it means having to travel to Melbourne. We can provide that service locally, whilst still maintaining contact with your specialist surgeon.
With the correct amount of fluid in the band, there should be minimal hunger, good weight loss and no unpleasant symptoms.
If the band is too loose, you will be hungry and tend to eat too much and therefore not lose enough weight.
If the band is too tight, you may get symptoms such as heartburn, reflux and vomiting after eating and you may be putting on weight as you tend to eat the wrong foods.
