    Vertical Banded Gastroplasty involves stapling the stomach to make a small pouch so that patient cannot eat as much according a a paper from researchers at Yale University.

    The average weight loss after one year is 42 percent according to one study.

    “[W]eight loss was poor in patients who continued to maintain a high-caloric intake in spite of the volume restriction,” the paper notes.

    “In addition, many of the [Vertical Banded Gastroplasty] patients did not correct their comorbidities, especially diabetes mellitus,” they continue.

    Long-term weight loss also seems to be poor according to a study from Sweden which found that after ten years the average weight loss was only 16.5 percent.
