testimonial for surgery abroadThank you SurgeryPrice! You saved me a whole bunch of money. At first I was considering having my tummy tuck at one of the clinics in London. I am so happy I changed my mind and went abroad instead. I got tummy tuck and breast lift for the same price I was planning to pay in London for tummy tuck only! I am very grateful for all the help you gave me :) Karin, London

About gastric banding

Gastric banding surgery results in considerable weight loss because it limits the capacity of food that a person can consume. The surgery is done under general anaesthesia.

Through small incisions a surgeon inserts a viewing camera and surgical instruments, then he inserts a band and adjusts it around the upper part of the stomach dividing the stomach into 2 parts. A newly created small pouch is connected to the lower part through small access. To put it precisely, the function of a band is to make a person eat less and feel fuller.
