Gastric band failure is reported to occur in 5% of patients. Gastric band slippage or Gastric band erosion can occur and therefore you may need to have your gastric band removed in these circumstances. 

This procedure does require a one night stay in hospital for observation purposes after a general anaesthetic. Like any other surgical procedure, there are possible risks and complications which will be discussed with you at your initial consultation. They are rare and everything possible will be done to prevent them from occurring.
