In brief: Folding stomach
This is a procedure to form the stomach into a small tube by stapling or folding and sewing it.
It is prone to breakdown, however, and a better restrictive weight loss procedure is called the sleeve gastrectomy, where 3/4 of the stomach is removed to create the same small tube-like stomach. It is in between a lapband and a gastric bypass in its effectiveness for weight loss, about 60% at 2 years.
