What is the difference between lap band and gastric bypass?

The main difference between the gastric band and bypass is that the gastric band is mainly a restrictive procedure (which limits the food intake) while the gastric bypass is mainly a malabsorptive procedure (which limits the food absorption). If you are not sure which surgery is best for you, it is the best idea to visit a doctor and ask for information about the advantages, possible risks, results that may be achieved, and qualification criteria for each surgery.
