How gastric banding weight loss surgery works

Gastric banding helps you gradually lose and control your weight by reducing the amount of food that your stomach can hold at one time. The system works by helping you control your food intake and supporting long-term, sustainable weight loss. The procedure requires lifelong behavioral, dietary and activity changes.
