Question by Gossip81: Gastric band for weight loss does it work and how does it work?
Positive feedback please
Answer by bumbleboi
It does work, it is like an elastic band which is placed around the stomach to restrict it’s capacity and function, hence you cannot eat as much as you once did. It is major surgery and highly risky and only available to those who are morbidly obese, which is different to clinically obese.
To be obese or clinically obese you have to be in excess of your ideal weight and body mass index (BMI). To be morbidly obese you have to be twice or more than twice your ideal weight and BMI, as the words imply, morbidly obese people are in danger of early or imminent death.
