Apart from that it also helps to reduce the stomach size and maintain the overall weight.
In this form of weight loss, a special diet is also given to the patient. It helps to ensure that the body gets all the necessary nutrition it needs without overeating.
In addition, it helps to ensure that the weight loss is permanent and is also beneficial for the overall health of a person.
