There are three (3) basic ways surgery can change the digestive system:

  1. Restrictive surgery reduces the size of the stomach so patients feel full quickly and learn to eat less to feel satisfied.
  2. Malabsorptive surgery shortens the first part of the small intestine, which means your body will absorb fewer calories, and you will lose weight.
  3. Combined restrictive and malabsorptive surgery reduces both the size of the stomach and the length of the intestine.
