Weight loss operations alter the anatomy of the digestive tract to create restriction (the sense of fullness) and, in some cases, reduce calorie absorption, and effect hunger hormones. These treatments work to limit the amount of food patients consumed and/or absorbed. While proven safe, each procedure carries unique risks and benefits important for you to learn more about.
