Types of Weight Loss Surgeries

Bariatric surgeries are divided into two separate categories: restrictive and malabsorptive. The restrictive technique is when the stomach’s capacity is reduced to facilitate weight loss. The restrictive technique is the main component of the Lap-Band system (gastric banding), gastric sleeve, sleeve plication, and gastric balloon.

Gastric Bypass in Mexico

Gastric bypass is a weight loss procedure that uses two techniques to achieve weight loss. Gastric bypass produces weight loss via two techniques: malabsorptive and restrictive.

The malabsorptive technique is when a patient’s intestines are rerouted to reduce the calories absorbed. Malabsorptive is a very powerful technique that is used with the restrictive technique, in the RNY gastric bypass and duodenal switch.
