What is gastric band surgery?
A spokesman for the Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office said: “We are supporting the family of a British citizen who died in Turkey and is in contact with local authorities.” Gastric band surgery involves a doctor placing a gastric band around the upper part of the stomach, creating a small pouch, according to the NHS. When the patient eats, the small pouch fills up faster than normal, making them feel fuller on less food. The procedure is said to help patients eat less, eat more slowly and lose weight.
According to the health authority, gastric band surgery usually takes less than an hour, not including the time needed to induce anesthesia and awaken the patient. The entire process should take around three to four hours. Complication rates for weight loss surgery are low and only about 1 in 100 people experience problems after gastric band surgery, the NHS reports. Likely, only 1 in 1,000 will not survive the procedure. Heavier patients, older, have had previous operations in the stomach area, or have other significant health problems are at higher risk of complications.
