Gastric Bypass Surgery
Gastric bypass surgery is performed to gain the weight loss, through decreasing the size of the stomach and shortening of the digestive system. the surgery is considered to be a final alternative chosen to combat the severe problems because of weight gain.
The laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery is performed by inserting a laparoscopic tube, after making small incision in the stomach. Initially the stomach is seen as small upper pouch and the remaining pouch, which is a larger pouch. The small intestines are arranged in such a way that it is allowed to connect both of these pouches, accordingly.
After the Procedure
After the surgical procedure is performed, the size of the stomach will be decreased to a greater extent.
- Since the size of the stomach is decreased to a better extent, the amount of food taken by the patient will be reduced. It is because the stomach can accept only a small amount of food. Some of the food taken by the patient will be bypassed through a small section of the small intestine. The result will be lesser absorption of the calories by the body. It eventually controls the weight of the body, without increasing the weight.
