Bariatric surgery procedures cause weight loss by reducing the amount of food that can be eaten at a meal by creating a smaller stomach, helping you to feel fuller longer, and reducing hunger and cravings. Some types of bariatric surgery (gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, and biliopancreatic diversion) change your body’s hormone signals, resulting in metabolic changes that can help reset your body's ability to effectively manage weight.
