Performed either by a single incision or five small incisions, an adjustable band is placed around the upper part of the stomach to help you feel fuller, faster. The band is gradually tightened, causing you to eat less and lose weight. There is no cutting or stapling of the stomach, which means this weight loss surgery can be performed as an outpatient procedure.
