There are risks that come with the medications and the methods used in the surgical procedure, as well as risks that come from how the body responds to any foreign object implanted in it. It is important to talk in details with a surgeon about the risks and complications that might arise during a Gastric Banding Procedure®.

What is BMI?

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measurement used to classify a person's weight into broad categories such as healthy weight range, overweight or obese. It compares a person's weight to their height using the following formula:

BMI = weight (kg) / height (cm)2

BMI is the most common way of measuring whether a person is overweight or obese. The risk of developing serious health consequences increases progressively as BMI increases.
