During the operation, the abdominal (stomach) surgeon forms a tube from the patient’s stomach without damaging the stomach (without removing a part of it); the tube is formed by suturing the stomach walls; if needed, the stomach sutures can be undone, and the stomach will regain the initial size.

After surgery, the patient feels satiety faster, eats less, and therefore begins to lose weight.
