Is Gastric Band Surgery Safe?

The City of Brisbane in Australia is known for its gastric balloon brisbane. The popularity of this procedure has been increasing exponentially, and most doctors now advise their patients to undergo the procedure if they are suffering from severe weight loss, or obesity. This type of surgery is also known as Gastric Bypass Surgery. The procedure is usually conducted when a person’s weight has become too great, and it results in a physical defect such as excessive fat, or even diabetes. This is when doctors use a small tube to go into the stomach, and the balloon fills with air, which then tightens around the remainder of the stomach, creating the impression that the person had in their stomachs many years ago.

 

Because the gastric band is made up of a combination of silicone, saline, and epoxy, the air in the balloon when inflated helps to keep the contents in place. This creates the feeling that one has traveled back in time. The surgery itself is very simple, but there are some things patients should watch out for, such as the smell from the surgical site, and the after effects of the balloon being inflated. It is also important that you contact your doctor as soon as possible, to make sure that you will be able to travel to Brisbane for your treatment.

After undergoing the balloon procedure, you will experience no significant discomfort. Your surgeon will place drains at both ends of your stomach, so that your body will be able to remove the excess liquid waste that develops during the surgery. Your doctor may also recommend a special post-op diet to help you maintain an optimal level of health. If your surgeon recommends that you take the balloon pillows back in, you will have to follow his or her advice closely. You will also be placed on a special diet for a week, so that you will be sure to avoid any eating anything that could cause indigestion later on. In order to prevent indigestion, you will also be encouraged to consume meals several times each day, so that your stomach will remain relatively empty for several hours after surgery.
