Weight loss surgery helps people with extreme obesity to lose weight. Bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) includes a variety of procedures performed on people who are obese. There are different types of weight loss surgery.
weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band (adjustable gastric band) or through removal of a portion of the stomach (sleeve gastrectomy) or by resecting and re-routing the small intestines to a small stomach pouch (gastric bypass surgery). These procedures need careful evaluation to be performed by trained Bariatric surgeons. All Bariatric surgical procedures carry potential risks and complications, such as infections, hernias, and blood clots.
