This means that you will need to make big lifelong changes in how you eat-including smaller portion sizes and different foods-in order to lose weight. The most common restrictive surgery is the lap band, the sleeve gastrectomy and the gastric bypass surgery.

The malabsorptive.-
This procedure can be translated like "the ones who interfere with the proper absorption of nutrient food" this surgeries implicate in some way that part of the stomach will be cut, stappled, or remotved and then reconnectated to the smaller intestine.
