Lap band surgery: Also known as laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB), is a form of bariatric surgery or restrictive weight loss procedure. It is used as a treatment for obesity. This procedure reduces the amount of food one can consume, by reducing the size of the stomach, and thereby also reduces the amount of calories the person can consume, thus aiding weight loss. It is the second most frequently performed bariatric surgery after gastric bypass surgery.

Gastric bypass surgery: Gastric bypass surgery is performed for the purpose of weight loss as it shrinks the pathway for absorption of food due to by-passing a part of the digestive system. Gastric bypass surgery has proved to be extremely beneficial in reducing weight. Up to 70 % of the excess body weight will be lost after this form of bariatric surgery. The patient will not be able to eat large portions or quantities of food like before and will absorb fewer calories from food. This surgery will also result in higher metabolism due to hormonal changes. Problems such as high blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes will also decrease significantly after the surgery.

Sleeve gastrectomy: Also known as gastric sleeve, is a form of bariatric surgery or weight loss procedure. It is used as a treatment for obesity. This procedure involves removing a large portion of the stomach surgically, making it much smaller, thus aiding weight loss. It is a less invasive surgery as compared to gastric bypass and is usually performed in patients for whom a gastric bypass is not a plausible option.
