Frequently Asked Questions
If your surgeon adds fluid to your band during your adjustment, go back to liquids like clear soup for the first day or so. Then, like your early days after surgery, you can work your way back to solid foods over the next few days.
The most common reason for adjustments are:
- You are not able to eat much of anything without experiencing discomfort, reflux (heartburn), or vomiting. Your band may be too tight.
- You are able to eat without restriction. Your band may be too loose.
- You are not losing weight. Your band may be too loose or too tight — meaning you may be able to eat too much or can only tolerate a liquid diet
The number and frequency of your adjustments depend on your individual case and considerations, such as how well you are healing post-surgery, and how you are feeling during and after your meals. Most patients have between five and eight adjustments within the first year after surgery. Others may only require a few to achieve their desired weight loss results.

It is a quick and relatively painless outpatient procedure. An x-ray will be taken during the procedure in order to see the band reservoir or "port" clearly. Then, a fine needle is passed through the skin into the port to add or remove saline. Adding saline tightens the band, further restricting the amount of food you can eat before you feel full and satisfied. Local anesthesia is used.
