What Is Weight Loss Sugery?

Weight Loss Surgery includes surgeries such as Sleeve Gastrectomy (also known as Gastric Sleeve surgery), Mini Gastric Bypass, Roux-En-Y Bypass and other variations. They are all operations where a part of your stomach is removed or restricted.
After the surgery, the vastly decreased stomach capacity means that you will feel full after eating a small amount of food.
You might also feel less hungry, because your smaller stomach will produce lower levels of a hormone called ghrelin, which causes hunger.
