In brief: Yes

Fatty liver should improve with any procedure resulting in significant weight loss.
Weight loss with the bypass and the sleeve is fairly comparable based on most series. These 2 procedures have statistically more weight loss compared to the band long term, especially in individuals with bmi's greater than 50. Diabetes resolution better with bypass ~75-85% than sleeve ~75-80% than band ~60-75%.

In brief: Yes

In fact many of these morbid conditions will improve or disappear altogether after weight loss.

In brief: Often Yes

Yes if you meet criteria for a body mass index greater than 35.
Diabetes and diabetic fatty liver disease (called non alcoholic steatoheaptits or nash) responds well to weight loss surgery. Your doctor must determine if the risk of your illness is greater than the risk of surgery.
