There are 3 main operations to consider:

1. Gastric Bands are the safest and have the smallest weight loss

2. Bypasses achieve the biggest weight loss and have the highest risk

3. Sleeves are in the middle in most respects.


Weight loss surgery has risks but is safer than remaining obese.

Weight loss surgery is a chance to have a life free from obesity.

It is your second chance at a healthy and active life.
