Gastric ring Tunisia


Obesity surgery in Tunisia is expanding more and more, as well as worldwide because of its beneficial benefits. It is one of the specialties practiced by our team of surgeons at the Clinic of the Center of Tunisia.
Existing in various forms, the surgery of obesity proceeds mainly by the method known as gastric banding or gastroplasty.

Gastric ring Tunisia Gastroplasty or gastric band, what does it consist of?

The principle of gastric banding is simple: it consists of placing a silicone ring around the upper part of the stomach to reduce the size of the stomach. The purpose of the operation is to give the patient a feeling of satiety after eating small amounts of food. This is made possible by separating the stomach (formerly used to large amounts of food) into two pouches: an upper pouch of 15 to 25 cm3 (equivalent to 3 or 4 tablespoons) and a larger lower pouch.

In other words, the stomach is transformed into a kind of hourglass, which will only let food pass very slowly from the upper to the lower pouch, thus creating a feeling of satiety in the brain very quickly. Note that the gastric band is accompanied by a box positioned under the skin, through which the surgeon can loosen or tighten the stomach as needed.
