Programs and Procedures

According to the American Society for Bariatric Surgery, there are two basic approaches to weight loss surgery for obesity. Both approaches can be combined in weight loss surgery, such as gastric bypass.

  1. Restrictive procedures that decrease food intake.
  2. Malabsorptive procedures that alter digestion, thus causing the food to be poorly digested and incompletely absorbed so that it is eliminated in the stool.
