    How does weight loss success happen?

    Weight loss success happens when you as a bariatric patient decide to adopt a lifestyle modification and your body obviously, will adapt to the impact of restriction of the food you eat and or malabsorption of that food.

    Bariatric Procedures such as Gastric Sleeve Surgery are considered restrictive because it helps you lose weight by limiting the amount of food you eat by reducing the capacity of the stomach making you feel fuller quicker. So, it will restrict the amount of food you consume as your stomach will be 50 to 70 % smaller than before.

    On the other hand, bariatric surgeries such as Gastric Bypass or Mini Bypass are considered malabsorptive procedures because they will allow the food to bypass your body by way of processing the food eaten in the small intestine, knowing this process as malabsorption.
