The gastric bypass surgery is the oldest form of bariatric surgery and has the record of successful weight loss and permanent weight change in patients. There are fewer complications with this surgery because it is not a more invasive open surgery like other options.
Laparoscopic gastric bypass allows for weight loss by, restricting food, absorption of calories, hunger suppression, and the overall feeling of being full. It does this by making a small pouch, the size of a large walnut where food will pass through and excluding a more substantial portion of the stomach. By redirecting portion of the stomach to the rest of the small intestine, you will eat less food and keep the part that is no longer being used.
