Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy
A Sleeve Gastrectomy decreases the size of your stomach so that you feel full with a small amount of food. Weight loss after a Sleeve Gastrectomy takes up to 18-24 months to reach the weight that is best for you.
Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
A Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass helps you lose weight in two ways. First, it makes your stomach smaller so that you feel full sooner and can’t eat as much during meals. Second, food bypasses part of the small intestine and is digested very quickly, limiting the amount of calories absorbed from the food causing malabsorption.
