New surgical procedure for weight loss- a pump?

Hello everyone!

As everyone knows, there are two major surgical means to lose weight- Gastric Bypass (where a doctor removes most of the stomach making it tiny) and Lap-band surgery (a less invasive version where a rubber band sections off the majority of the stomach).  

There is another one they are trying to get on the market, pending FDA approval.  

Attaching a pump to your stomach to pump out undigested food!

Yes. Attaching a pump.  To suck out undigested food.  From  your stomach.

In other words, surgically-induced bulimia without the vomiting.  

I think this is a VERY extreme measure, and one that has great potential to be abused. 

What do you think about this?  A good idea, or a new low in the lengths people will go to avoid dieting and exercising?
