What I liked: "He is straight forward and very honest, yes the consultation is quick BUT you should have done lots of research before your appointment with him. I found him genuinely interested in my case. We even spoke about other matters He is very experience and I trust him impeccably"

Could improve: "Disappointed that my follow up appointments, except the first one have not been with him, But I guess that allows him to see new patients. Would live to banter with him some more, maybe I will get that chance when I get his opinion on my boob lift"

There are two main gastric bands, namely the lapband (Allergan) and the Swedish adjustable gastric band (Ethicon). These would constitute 99% of the market worldwide.
Allergan band is from the company that made the original gastric band, namely lapband. This is now fourth generation and comes in two sizes - APS holds a maximum of 10mls of saline, with patients on average having 6 to 7mls and APL holds a maximum of 14mls of saline with an average fill of 9 to 10mls. Allergan band has omniform technology which ensures an even distrubution of saline throughout the balloon of the band, thereby providing an even pressure of restriction the stomach.
Ethicon band only has one size which holds a maximum of 12mls of saline, with the average fill of 9 to 10mls. Ethicon band is wider and softer than the Allergan band.
The majority of surgeons will use both bands, and the choice will depend on patient characteristics and the clinical situation

A hernia is a defect in muscle, where two parts of the muscle have pulled apart leaving a space, usually due to a tear in the muscle. As such a hernia cannot be full removed but can be fully repaired. Repair of a hernia is usually when the defect is closed using either a piece of mesh to plug the defect in the muscle or alternatively when the edges of the muscle are pulled together using stitches.
