Bariatric surgery: There are many different options for surgical weight loss at this time.
It is best to discuss your individual situation with your bariatric expert (surgeon).

Laparoscopic: More steps involved with bypass. The current picture shows bypass. The last question i answered for you has the picture of sleeve.

Neither: Iy is my opinion that if you had a sleeve gastrectomy for morbid obesity, and it didn't work, there is not a reasonable expectation that another procedure will work. The operation is only one tool in a box that also must contain dietary modification and some calorie restriction, along with an exercise program and and a perspective that these changes are sustainable for the rest of your life.
