What is a gastric ring?

A gastric ring or gastric band is a band that is placed around the stomach. The purpose of this is to reduce the volume of your stomach so it can contain less food. This promotes the feeling of satiety and ensures you eat less, with the result that you lose weight faster. This way the obesity can be tackled.

The gastric ring is made of an elastic band, which can of course be placed safely in your body, without any risk of damage to surrounding organs. The tension of the band can be adjusted later. Removing the band altogether is another option.

Gastric ring experiences

The purpose of a gastric ring is to achieve significant weight loss, to get rid of your excess weight. Not only does this improves your quality of life, but also your general health. Past experiences with the gastric ring show that people are very pleased with this procedure, because the weight is shed relatively quickly afterwards. We also recommend following a healthy diet and exercise regularly.

At Wellness Kliniek, we fully understand that opting for a gastric ring (gastric band) is not a decision you make overnight. Is this weight loss procedure right for you? Or would you rather opt for alternatives?

During the no-obligation consultation, our doctor will discuss the procedure with you in detail, your expectations and the possible results for your body. Alternative interventions will be discussed with you as well, such as the gastric sleeve and the gastric bypass.

Whatever procedure you will undergo, by opting for Wellness Kliniek, you can rest assured that you opt for the highest possible quality. We work completely safely and always offer aftercare tailored to your personal needs. This way, you can work on your beautiful ‘new me’.

Who is a gastric ring intended for?

A gastric ring is an ideal solution for people who have trouble shedding weight. With a gastric ring, you can expect to lose an average of 15 kilos, but the actual effect varies from person to person.

When do you qualify for a gastric ring? If your BMI is too high. In addition, your general health must be adequate, to ensure you are strong enough to undergo the procedure. A gastric ring can also be placed in people with diabetes, (most) cardiovascular diseases and high blood pressure.

Our doctors will always provide you with personalised advice and see whether this stomach operation is the right solution for you to lose your excess weight.

What to expect

You’ll notice a difference almost immediately after surgery. Your feeling of hunger will decrease significantly, which will make you eat less. The combination of a gastric ring and an adjustment in your diet will eventually lead to significant weight loss.

On average, you can expect to lose about 15 kilos. In the first weeks after the procedure, this can be a half kilo to up to several kilos per week. You must realise that results vary from person to person and also depend on your current amount of excess weight.

The gastric ring recovery period

We recommend on average of 1 to 2 weeks for the recovery period. During this time you can walk slowly, but not perform any intensive movements. After the procedure, we’ll closely monitor your recovery. Usually, you’ll be invited back for consultations after 1, 2, 3 and 6 months.

Immediately after the operation, it’s important to eat liquids and easily digestible food, after which you can slowly switch back to solids. The dietitian will advise you on a healthier lifestyle that suits you.

We are of course always available and you can ask questions at any time. During your first consultation at Wellness Kliniek, everything will be explained to you and you’ll have the opportunity to ask the attending physician questions.
