Some patients are not suitable for certain procedures such as those who have the following underlying medical conditions:
- sleep apnoea
- uncontrolled atrial fibrillation
- unstable angina
- unstable hypertension
- uncontrolled diabetes
- valvular heart disease e.g. aortic stenosis
- home oxygen therapy
- wheelchair bound
- heart attack or stroke within last 6 months
Patients with other medical conditions are not automatically excluded, and will have an assessment by our consultants, anaesthetists and pre-operative nurses to confirm that it is appropriate for them to have their procedure. A small number of patients, approximately 3-4%, may experience problems 2-3 years after gastric band surgery, primarily ‘band erosion’ or ‘pouch dilatation’. These problems can sometimes be managed medically but can occasionally involve revision surgery to resolve the problem. It is important that this fact is considered before you embark on surgery. We hope that this information enables you to make an informed choice and it also helps you set out a personal strategy for approaching your weight loss programme. As mentioned in all our literature the procedures above must be part of a life style change which includes reviewing what you eat, how you exercise, and how you get back to feeling good about your health as well as how you look. If you require more information from one of our customer advisors, or to book a consultation with one of our leading weight loss surgery consultants contact us now on 0141 328 3236.

Lorna C, Inverness
“I did this for myself but in the end it’s been the best thing for my family — I didn’t think it would affect my family as much as it has. To see my children as proud of me as they are has been well worth everything!”

“This surgery and the support from the whole Aspire team has really helped me to be successful. Weight loss surgery is not a diet it is a whole new life! I embrace every single day with a new attitude. Thank you so much!”

Frequently asked questions
How Will My Life Change after Surgery?
Lifetime follow-up is recommended, with at least three follow-up visits during the first year. Adjustable gastric banding requires more frequent visits for band adjustments. You will need to adopt a healthy lifestyle, including a new nutrition plan and regular exercise, although exercise restrictions may be in place until you are healed. Because of the decrease in food intake, constipation may occur. A laxative may be recommended. You may want to consider or may require reconstructive operations after your weight stabilizes.
Medications can be prescribed as needed. However, your doctor may tell you to avoid aspirin and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, which can irritate the stomach.
How Will My Diet Change?
Immediately following adjustable gastric banding, only sips of water are allowed. Over the next two weeks, the consumption amount is increased gradually with fluids in the form of water and liquids, such as clear broth, skimmed milk, low-calorie juice and sugar-free ice lollies. You will need to watch how many calories you eat and limit your liquid intake to avoid nausea and vomiting. Low-fat pureed foods, protein-rich chicken and fish, mashed potatoes and peas are started three to four weeks after the operation.
Patients who undergo more invasive procedures follow a similar dietary progression for 12 weeks and then they are allowed regular, healthy foods.
Once healed, care must be taken to let your stomach adapt to its new environment. Vitamin supplements may be necessary
How Long Will It Take for Me to Recover?
That depends on the procedure. Patients, who undergo laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding or sleeve gastrectomy surgery tend to stay in the hospital for typically one night.
Recovery times differ too. In one study, patients returned to normal activity in about one week after laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding and between two to three weeks after a sleeve gastrectomy.
