What are the risks of the Banded Plication Procedure?
Any type of surgery or procedure involving anesthesia carries certain risks. Beyond those, banded plication risks include band or port infection, and band erosion. It’s important to note that this is a newer procedure, and therefore, there is not the same type of long-term data available as with other procedures.
It’s equally important to note here that gastric plication adds only minimal risk to the risk of the lap band procedure on its own, and is far less invasive, with lower risk, than gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy.
What type of diet will I need to follow after Banded Plication?
Your diet following a banded plication procedure will be similar to a post lap band surgery diet. This means you will move through three two-week phases after your procedure. The first will be based entirely on liquids. From there, you will add certain softer foods into your diet, and then a more complete range of solid and regular food choices.
In addition to more complete instructions, guidelines and education on your dietary and nutritional needs, the Tristate NYBG provides all of our patients with helpful add-ons such as support groups and mentors. You can even stock up and save with our online store, where you’ll find tasty foods and drinks which have been exactingly made for your specific post-surgery diet.
