Weight Loss Surgery: What to Expect
How Does Weight Loss Surgery Work?
There isn’t just one operation. There are several kinds of these metabolic and bariatric surgeries, as doctors call them. They work in one of the following ways:
Limit how much food your stomach can hold, so you eat less and lose weight.
Stop your digestive system from absorbing some of the calories and nutrients in the foods you eat.
Use both of the above methods.
