An inflatable silicone device is placed around the top portion of the stomach, in order to help weight loss. The placement of the band creates a small pouch, at the top of the stomach. This pouch holds around half a cup of food. (The typical stomach holds about 6 cups of food).
The pouch fills with food quickly, and the band slows the passage of food from the pouch to the lower part of the stomach. As the upper part of the stomach registers as full, it sends the brain a message that the entire stomach is full. This helps the person to be hungry less often, feel full more quickly and for a longer period of time, eat smaller portions, and consequently lose weight over time.
