Being overweight and obese presents a lot of health problems such as high blood pressure, sleep apnea and diabetes. Despite the complexity of obesity as a disease, the good news is one can lose weight through Obesity or Bariatric Surgery.

Bariatric Surgery can be categorized as Restrictive, Malabsorptive or a Combination of both. Restrictive Surgeries work to reduce the size of the stomach which in turn decreases the amount of food it can consume. Examples of these types include Lap band Surgery (Adjustable gastric banding) and Gastric sleeve.

Meanwhile, the Malabsorptive type works to remove or rearrange a part the digestive system and then it works to limit the amount of calories our body absorbs. Pure malabsorptive operations are no longer performed as mostly implemented are Restrictive and Combination (Restrictive + Malabsorptive). Examples of Combination surgeries include Gastric Bypass and Duodenal Switch. However, the Among the most commonly performed bariatric surgeries are sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass.
