Well, it *is* a pretty risky procedure.
a. WLS has the highest complication rate of any elective surgery.
b. If the procedure is succesful you will not be able to eat enough food to survive and will have to supplement.
c. NIH quotes a 20% long term success rate.
So, basically, you turn yourself into an involuntary bullemic for a 1 in 5 chance of keeping the weight off. I know it's a good last ditch effort for someone who needs to loose the weight, but it's definately not the kind of thing that should be marketted to teenage girls along with diet pills and gym memberships.
