Bariatric surgery promotes weight loss and health improvements. It typically results in the restriction of excess food intake, making the body feel fuller more quickly. Malabsorption–the process of limiting calorie/nutrient intake–can also result from some bariatric surgeries.
Bariatric surgery should be a supplement to regular dieting and exercise to combat weight regain.
The most common types of bariatric surgeries include adjustable gastric band, Roux-en-Y bypass, and vertical sleeve gastrectomy.
