Gastric band surgery (UK)

Is complication quite common in Gastric band surgery for a woman of 30 years old, obese with type 2 diabetes?
Is it done by key hole ?   Someone, who is addicted to carbohydrate and fails dieting with diabetes type 2,  is she a
right candidate for this kind of surgery?
How much risk is involved?   What are the complications during and after the surgery and also long term?
Thanks.

These are all great questions, hopefully someone with more experience with this can post.  I am sure you already got your answers by now, but would be great to get a follow up too.
