Save up to 75% of your costs on Gastric Band Surgery in Prague
Gastric Banding is the least invasive surgery for weight loss and is an ideal option for people who have not been successful using diet or exercise. It is recommended for patients with BMI over 35 who suffer from obesity – related diseases. The main advantage of the gastric band is that the patients can keep it permanently, which will prevent them from getting back to their bad eating habits.
Although Gastric Band Surgery is very effective, not everyone can afford it. Because Weight Loss Surgery costs are constantly rising in other popular destination countries, it makes sense to come to Czech Republic to have this procedure done. It is not only affordable here, but you will also enjoy Prague, which is one of the most renowned cities for its hundreds of spires, picturesque views and magnificent cathedrals.

A silicone cuff is implanted around the upper part of the stomach. Thus, the stomach gets the shape of an hourglass. Its upper part has a small volume and after eating a small portion, the patient has a feeling of being full. The gastric band is adjustable – it can be tightened and filled with physiological liquid if you stop losing weight after some period after the surgery. The adjustments are done for free at our clinic.
