Bariatric surgery is for people who are morbidly obese and have not been able to lose weight through traditional means, or for people who have obesity-related medical conditions.
Bariatric procedures can be either malabsorptive procedures that shorten the digestive tract or restrictive procedures that reduce how much the stomach can hold – or a combination of both.*
The best weight loss procedure for you depends on several factors, including your personal preference, associated medical issues and medical necessity.
