    i live in asia and want a band over my bypass. the most reputable hospital in asia that i know of (bumrungrad in thailand) is almost as expensive as the states and they allow no shortcuts in the process. post -op you must stay or return to thailand several times. i am looking for something more like the specialist clinics that ONLY do bariatrics at a reasonable price. please let me know if you have heard any good info on docs or hospitals. thanks!

    Why would you want a band over the sleeve? I am having my band taken out... it is just too invasive ...

    I just found this forum here. I got my sleeve done in Seoul Korea from Dr. Han and the Gangnam CHA hospital. It was a fantastic experience and am know about a year and half since my surgery and have no complaints. The cost was more than Mexico but not by too much. If you were already in Korea or NorthEast Asia I would highly recommend Dr. Han.

    It is a surgery finished obesity where an outsized portion of the stomach is permanently removed leaving a stomach of roughly 120ml. Reducing the dimensions of the stomach restricts the quantity of food consumed. It also causes hormonal changes that assist with weight loss. This procedure is permanent and non-reversible. it's a restrictive procedure. Some surgeons advocate putting a hard and fast band round the newly formed sleeve to realize weight loss and stop future weight regain.
