Sleeve gastrectomy is one of the most common types of weight loss surgery in which a part of the stomach is removed. Such kind of surgery is done with the help of modern laparoscopic techniques in which smaller incisions are made. The laparoscope consists of a small camera which is attached to its one end; this helps in visualization of internal organs on a huge monitor screen. This helps in performing the surgery with absolute precision.
Gastric band surgery is also very common gastric surgery in which a band is placed around the stomach that decreases its size. This makes the person feel fuller while having a small quantity of food.
Gastric bypass surgery is another type of surgery in which the top part of the stomach is joined to the small intestine that bypasses most of the stomach and the small intestine. As a result the person feels fuller and does not assimilate and absorb as many calories from the food as before.
