Gastric Banding is performed by placing a band on the upper portion of your stomach forming a small pouch above the band, while the rest of your stomach remains below the band. The band can be filled with saline through a subcutaneous port thus decreasing how much food can pass through resulting in decreased hunger. You eat smaller amount of food which satisfies your hunger and promotes a feeling of fullness. The size of the stomach opening is adjustable and can be done through a saline injection placed under your skin.
