Bariatric surgery, or weight loss surgery, is surgery to achieve significant weight loss. There are a number of techniques used to perform bariatric surgery. In Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery, surgeons make your stomach smaller and re-route food to “bypass” part of the small intestine.
In sleeve gastrectomy surgery, surgeons make your stomach smaller by removing about 75-80 percent of the stomach.
