In brief: Bypass surgery

Gastric bypass surgery, and all the surgeries for the overweight, essentially work by decreasing the number and or the amount of calories that you are able to absorb.
Each of the several procedures work in slightly different ways. All of the surgeries have their unique complications, so ask your surgeon specific questions.
