Gastric Band

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.

How is the Gastric Band in Prague done?

In the morning of the procedure date you will have your preoperative tests and an English-speaking internist will examine you. After that, you will have the gastroscopy and ultrasound examination. If there are no ulcers found, the surgery can be done in general anesthesia and laparoscopically. After the surgery you will spend 2 – 3 hours in the intensive care unit. Then you will be taken to the inpatient ward. The next day your surgeon will come for check – up. If everything is fine, you can leave back home. You will also get your personal diet plan. 

How long should I stay in Prague for Gastric Band?

Only 2 – 3 nights in Prague are required for this procedure.

What is the mechanism of losing weight with Gastric Band?

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.

How much weight can I lose with Gastric Band in Prague?
The amount of weight you lose with Gastric Band depends on how closely you follow your diet and adopt lifestyle changes. In general, patients lose 50 - 60 % of their excess weight over the first 2 years.

After such major weight loss you may be interested in having a cosmetic surgery to improve your look further. Patients sometimes want Tummy Tucks or Liposuctions. These procedures are also carried out at our clinics in Prague.
