In brief: It works
Bariatric surgery has been shown to be th most effective way to lose weight and keep it off long term. Stomach stapling is one type of bariatric surgery.
It is far from an easy way out. Talk to a bariatric surgeon to see if you are a candidate for surgery. It is not for everyone and not all surgeries are appropriate for everyone.
