    This procedure is performed under general anaesthesia and usually takes no more than 45 minutes.

    Once asleep, with the aid of the endoscope, a device is inserted through the mouth into the stomach, where a series of folds are made and sewn, reducing the capacity of the stomach and generating a sensation of rapid fullness

    After your time in the recovery room, the doctor may recommend that you spend the night in the centre, but you will usually be discharged after a few hours.
