The gastric bypass is a restrictive procedure that limits how much patients can eat at one time. It also is a malabsorptive procedure that limits the amount of calories that you consume with each meal. This dual effect will allow for patients to have excellent weight loss results.
During a gastric bypass, a small pouch is created in the stomach using a stapling device. The small stomach pouch, about the size of an egg, limits the amount of food you can eat before feeling full. By altering the anatomy of the gastrointestinal tract, gastric bypass changes signals in the body, resulting in decreased hunger and increased feelings of fullness after meals.c
