A gastric bypass is a good choice for overweight people who are at risk of health problems as a result. For example, because you eat a lot of sugar and carbohydrates and are finding it difficult to stop. Have you tried numerous diets without the desired result? Then you can put an end to your excess weight with a gastric bypass.
During gastric bypass surgery, the size of the stomach is reduced to about the size of a shot glass (15 to 25 ml). A small stomach pouch is created, as well as a new gastric outlet. The small intestine is partly repositioned (hence the name bypass) and the duodenum is reconnected. As a result, the digestive system is modified. As a result, you will be able to tolerate less food and you will eat less, while the digestive system remains healthy. You will eventually lose some 70% to 80% of your excess weight.
Apart from the fact that you will feel satiated more quickly after a gastric bypass procedure, you will also suffer less from acid reflux. In addition, it is in most cases the best option for people with diabetes or high cholesterol. A gastric bypass is often the most effective procedure for significant weight loss.
