As obesity rates around the world soars, demand for Gastric Band Surgery has never been higher. The success stories of celebrities such as Fern Britton and Sharon Osbourne have encouraged thousands to follow in their footsteps.
The operation involves placing a band around the upper region of the stomach. The band creates a small pouch at the top of the stomach that can hold approximately half a cup of food (normally 6 cups)
When this pouch is full, it sends a message to the brain that the entire stomach is full. Therefore, the patient is hungry less often, feels full more quickly and for longer, eats smaller portions, and loses weight over time.
The fitting of a Surgical Gastric Band results in most patients achieving steady, ongoing weight loss until they reach their target weight, as agreed with their surgeon.
The Hypnotic Gastric Band is intended for people who have stones to lose rather than just pounds to lose. Anyone who is overweight by 2 stone or more may want to consider the Hypnotic Gastric Band. (Usually people with a BMI 35 or over)
The Surgical Gastric Band has many unpleasant and painful side effects. Over 80% of patients will experience one or more of the following symptoms;
- Nausea and vomiting (50%)
- Reflux or regurgitation of food (35%)
- Slipped Band (25%)
- Obstruction or blockage (15%)
- Difficulty swallowing
Additionally, there is the price usually around £8,000) upwards, and it does not always offer the miracle solution – Lifestyle changes must be made to reap the full benefits.
Having a Hypnotic Gastric Band helps shed the weight without undergoing any of these dangerous and expensive surgical procedures. The Hypnotic Gastric Band is designed to create a different relationship with food, so you eat much smaller portions and enjoy a generally healthier diet.
Just as having a traditional Gastric Band Surgically fitted is not a quick fix, nor a miracle cure, neither is the Hypnotic Gastric Band: as with both procedures, a number of life changes are required.
The success stories of having a Hypnotic Gastric Band have been well documented in the news recently with a reported success rate of 80%, which is higher than actually having the surgical procedure which only works for 70% of people.
The programme is based upon 4 to 5 days of treatment which can be taken on consecutive days, over a couple of weeks or longer if preferred. A consultation approx. 8 weeks after completion of the main therapy would be advisable to find if the rate of weight loss being achieved is in line with expectations. Also possible to’ tighten’ your Hypnotic Gastric Band. Subsequently it can also be ‘loosened’.
