Is the gastric band operation permanent?

The gastric band is designed to be in place for a long time, but it is a reversible procedure. A further keyhole operation later in the future would be required to remove the gastric band. There are no long-term changes to the stomach meaning that it would eventually resume its original shape. This means, however, that weight could be put back on. It would be important to maintain a healthy lifestyle if you wished to have the band removed and to continue at your lower BMI.
