Gastric Bypass surgery allows people to lose weight by changing the way the stomach handles and processes food.
The Gastric Bypass procedure involves two steps. First, the stomach is divided into two sections using staples, an upper small section, and a lower bottom section. The upper section is called a pouch, and holds approximately one ounce of food. The bottom section of the stomach is removed.
The "pouch" is connected directly to the middle portion of the small intestine, bypassing the rest of the stomach and the upper portion of the small intestine.
Most people return to their normal activities within 2 to 4 weeks after Gastric Bypass surgery. The result of the surgery is that you will feel full more quickly than when your stomach was its original size. This reduces the amount of food you eat and the calories consumed. Bypassing part of the intestine also results in fewer calories being absorbed.
