What Procedure Is Right for You? (Individual results may vary)
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.

Bariatric surgery is typically very successful — resulting in weight loss, better quality of life and improved health. Unfortunately, some patients may experience problems with the surgery or they do not succeed in losing their expected amount of excess weight. In these situations, a bariatric revision may be necessary to alter or repair the initial bariatric surgery.
