In brief: Depends
The band has the fewest short term complications but long term can develop problems down the road like slips or erosions.
The sleeve has a slightly higher complication rate initially but few long term complications, most commonly gastric reflux.

In brief: Sleeve has fewest
The sleeve gastrectomy seems to have the lowest side effects.
The only one seen on some of the 5year reports is acid reflux/heartburn (5-8%).
