It creates a prestomach, which makes you feel full faster and less hungry. As a result, many patients lose over 2 kg per week in the initial period. Trust in more than 1,000,000 success stories and positive experiences of patients with gastric banding worldwide. And you already have something in common with them! Just like you, they all started where you are right now.

HOME ON THE SAME DAY

The Mini-Operation

The gastric band is placed around your stomach from the outside in a mini operation. The procedure takes place on an outpatient basis. This means that if you have your mini-operation at 8:00 a.m., you are usually home by 2:00 p.m.. You simply sleep through the procedure and can leave after a short observation.

Acclimatization

The first few days

You should take it easy for a few days after the mini-operation. In the first few days you may experience discomfort, such as abdominal pain, heartburn or nausea. Don’t worry – you will leave your My Weight expert with all the useful medications that will make your adjustment more comfortable.

Personal assistance

Never alone!

You have a My Weight coach throughout the entire therapy. Together with you, your coach will create a nutrition plan that will make your permanent dietary change as easy as possible. Very important: You decide how we can best support you.

How simple!

Control your hunger and you control your weight

Initially, the gastric band was often called an eating brake. But this no longer applies to today’s gastric bands. We know from scientific studies that a properly adjusted gastric band gives you long-lasting satiety. It helps you to control your hunger and your eating behavior and to lose weight in the long term.

Adjustable, adaptable and secure

Gastric banding is a surgical procedure for weight loss. It is the only procedure that is “reversible”. This means that the band can be removed again. Afterwards, the stomach returns to its former state. Why is this point so important?

Science shows that almost all surgical interventions against obesity work only for a certain time. However, the gastric band is not only reversible. It also gives you the possibility to adjust it. At the first sign that your weight is going up again, you can counteract it with a refill.

It is possible that your body will change due to weight loss. This means that sometimes the band will not have the same effect as it did at the beginning. In these cases, the effect of the gastric band can be restored with a little liquid. Then your weight loss will continue. This procedure usually takes less than 10 minutes – it’s just a small prick like a blood draw.

Lose weight with gastric band - completely flexible!

Refresher required?

The gastric band can be adjusted to your needs even years after the procedure – without surgery!

Removal made easy!

Unlike other bariatric surgery procedures, the procedure can be reversed.

Surgical procedures against obesity change your body permanently and irretrievably. This is different with gastric banding. In addition, with the gastric band you have no restriction in the choice of food. Furthermore, a permanent and expensive supply of vitamins and nutrients in the form of tablets is not necessary.

Who is eligible?

People who suffer from high levels of obesity often have to live with concomitant diseases. These include high blood pressure, diabetes or cardiovascular problems. In addition, there is also a higher risk of heart attack or stroke. Furthermore, there is often discrimination, isolation or depression.

Often, poor diet and lack of exercise are the cause of the formation body fat. In this case, a gastric band can help to permanently reduce weight. A good guide is the body mass index (BMI). For this purpose, body weight and height are put in relation to each other. In our experience, patients with a BMI of over 30 are very well suited to successfully lose weight with a gastric band.

Wer ist geeignet?

Wer an hohem Übergewicht leidet, muss oft mit Begleiterkrankungen leben. Dazu gehören Bluthochdruck, Diabetes oder Herz- und Kreislaufprobleme. Zusätzlich besteht auch ein höheres Risiko für Herzinfarkt oder Schlaganfall. Dazu kommt häufig  Diskriminierung, Isolation oder Depressionen.

Oft sind falsche Ernährung und mangelnde Bewegung die Ursache für die Bildung Körperfett. In diesem Fall kann ein Magenband helfen dauerhaft Gewicht zu reduzieren. Eine gute Leitgrösse ist der Body-Mass-Index (BMI). Hierzu setzt man Körpergewicht und Körpergrösse ins Verhältnis. Dabei sind Patienten mit einem BMI von über 30 unserer Erfahrung nach sehr gut geeignet erfolgreich mit dem Magenband abzunehmen.
