Gastric bypass

Gastric bypass
Gastric bypass (Roux-en-Y) is a surgical weight-loss intervention that offers the use of a consolidation of both main bariatric treatment methods, namely restriction, and malabsorption, to achieve weight loss.

Restriction aids in reducing the quantity of food the stomach can intake, helping the patient feel satiety easier and reducing the risk of overeating, while malabsorption constrains the body’s capability to soak up calories from the food that is consumed.

Gastric bypass surgery reconstructs your stomach and small intestine, providing you with a healthy long-term solution to achieving and sustaining a sound weight.
This surgery takes about 2 to 4 hours.
In general, sleeve gastrectomy surgery could be an option for you if:

Your body mass index (BMI) is between 40 and 50. Patients with a BMI over 40 are clinically obese but may have been unable to lose weight using other means, which makes them good candidates for gastric bypass surgery
Gastric bypass surgery is an efficient procedure for tackling obesity, but it isn’t an antidote, the patient needs to make considerable adjustments to his or hers lifestyle, following the surgery, in order to keep progressing to his new and better self. This would mean, following a healthy eating diet and participating in physical activity on a daily basis.
