Bariatric surgery – the best way to solve obesity problems at affordable price in Lithuania


Today, one of the most efficient and advanced ways to treat obesity is bariatric surgery. It is also an excellent solution for people who cannot lose a significant amount of weight with exercise and diet.

Gastric banding is the surgery performed on the stomach and it helps to reduce the patient's food intake. This surgical procedure requires just 1 day of inpatient treatment.

In this procedure, a hollow band made of special material is placed around the stomach near its upper part, creating a small pouch and a narrow passage into the larger lower part of the stomach. The band is then inflated with a solution. It can be tightened or loosened over time to change the size of the passage by increasing or decreasing the amount of solution.

As patients lose weight, their bands will need adjustments, or 'fills', to ensure comfort and effectiveness. The gastric band is adjusted by introducing a saline solution into a small access port placed just under the skin. A specialized non-coring needle is used to avoid damage to the port membrane and prevent leakage.

If the surgeon has done a lot of these procedures, your surgery may take around 40–60 minutes.

After such surgery, when you eat, the small pouch will fill up quickly. You will feel full after eating just a small amount of food. The food in the small upper pouch will slowly pass into the main part of your stomach.

Therefore, the weight loss after this surgery is significant and long-term. After the surgery, the band should be adjusted for a few times during the period of 1 – 1.5 years.
