In brief: Several things

Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy a surgical weight-loss procedure in which the stomach is reduced to about 25% of its original size.
LSG has been reported to increase the risk of new onset gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) by altering the normal position of the sphincter at the gastroesophageal junction or in some cases, having the sleeve migrate into the chest. It is still safer than bypass
