This mini-review appoints on the mechanisms linking bariatric surgery and the logic of weight loss by addressing various types of procedures in individuals with obesity. The essential approach for bariatric surgery for the purpose of achieving satisfactory weight loss involves the determination that, obesity is a disease associated with multiple adverse events on human health which can be reversed or improved by successful weight loss following bariatric surgery in individuals who have failed to achieve weight loss by non-surgical treatment options. Here we summarize different types of bariatric surgery and their clear differences.
