It is important to understand how it is done and what makes it safe and so successful. In bariatric surgery procedures, weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach in the following ways.

The balloon can be left in the stomach for a maximum of six months and results in an average weight loss of 5-9 kgs. A Gastric Bypass surgery involves re-secting and re-routing the small intestines to a small stomach pouch.
