  1. In this, stomach will be stapled to look like a little pouch in the top region to make your stomach and reduce the size and decrease the intake of food.
  2. Later, the small intestine is cut and attached to the lower part of the pouch. Thus food is bypassed through the stomach and the higher portion of the small intestine.
  3. The bypassed section is connected far away down to the below part of the small intestine. The process cannot be reversed.

Laparoscopic adjustable gastric band:

  1. In this process, a ring with an inner inflatable band is placed around the top of the stomach to create a small pouch.
  2. This will help in restricting food as you will feel full after eating a small quantity.
  3. The size of the pouch can be changed by injecting or removing the solution in the pouch with the help of a small device called a port which is placed below the skin.

Sleeve gastrectomy (gastric sleeve):

  1. This process is also called vertical sleeve gastrectomy. In this procedure, the stomach is stapled leaving a banana-shaped section inside.
  2. This surgery reduces the intake of food by making you feel fuller. This will also affect gut hormones, gut bacteria, appetite, and metabolism. This process is irreversible.

Duodenal switch or Biliopancreatic diversion:

  1. The first surgery process is similar to gastric sleeve process.
  2. The second surgery involves redirecting food to bypass through your small intestine.
