There are many types of surgical applications for weight loss such as:

Gastric Band: This is a band placed around the stomach creating a small pouch towards the top. It

take less food to fill the pouch so you don’t eat as much before you feel full.

Gastric Bypass: Where surgical staples are used to create a small pouch in the top of the stomach. This means it takes less food and absorbs fewer calories from the food you eat.

Gastric balloon: It is balloon filed with air or salt water placed into your stomach using a thin tube passed down your throat. This a temporary measure and lasts for only 6 months.

Gastric Sleeve: Where the surgeon removes some of the stomach and the appetite hormone. After the procedure, patients experience a loss of appetite.
