The surgery involves forming a small pouch in the upper part of the stomach that effectively becomes a new baby stomach. The sialistic band is wrapped around the upper portion of stomach all around to form a "baby stomach." The narrow opening or stoma is formed by the bands two ends joining together. This band has a balloon on it which can be inflated or deflated in later stages so as to increase or decrease the size of stoma. This step makes the SAGB a stoma adjustable operation. This can be done anytime after the operation with the help of port kept under the skin at the time of operation, now the food still goes down the normal way and is digested in the bowel normally.
