Can the Gastric Band be removed?

Yes. The gastric band can be removed, which is appealing to many. But why would you want to remove your gastric band? It is quite safe to leave your gastric band implanted and we’d recommend that even when you have reached your desired weight, you leave the band in place so that you can use it to retain control over your weight in the future.
