What is an Adjustable Gastric Band (AGB)?

An adjustable gastric band is a device put around the stomach using minimally invasive surgical techniques. It’s an FDA-approved procedure and It can temporarily create a smaller stomach, causing the patient to feel full sooner.

It has an average hospital stay of 24 hours. Once the band is in place around the stomach, a port is attached and accessible on the outside layer of skin on the abdomen.

During follow-up visits, a provider will insert or remove liquid from the port to either contract or expand the band. An individual fitting will depend on the patient and their weight loss goals.

Am I a Candidate for an Adjustable Gastric Band (AGB)?

Adjustable gastric band (AGB) surgery should only be utilized in severe cases of obesity, and for those that did not have long-term results with non-surgical options. It’s a great option for someone looking for non-permanent stomach reduction. You typically can become a candidate for (AGB) if you have a body mass index of more than 40, and are also looking to help remedy another related health concern including:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Hypertension
  • Sleep apnea
  • Gallbladder disease
