Laparoscopic gastric bypass

Gastric bypass, also known as a stomach bypass operation, is the most common type of weight loss surgery.

The operation is performed laparoscopically, using small incisions. During the gastric bypass procedure, a small portion of the stomach is separated from the rest, and the new smaller stomach is rerouted past other parts of the digestive tract and connected directly to the upper part of the small intestine. Food bypasses the larger part of the stomach and the duodenum, going directly into the small intestine. This reduces the amount of food that can be consumed, leading to a feeling of fullness much faster with smaller portions.

Gastric bypass surgery is suitable for patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 kg/m2 or higher. The expected weight loss with gastric bypass is around 70-80% of excess weight.

For any weight loss surgery to be successful, it is important for the patient to make noticeable lifestyle changes to promote weight loss and prevent regaining weight. Additionally, patients need to increase their level of physical activity.

After the surgery, patients initially consume liquid foods, and under the guidance of nutrition therapists, their diet is gradually modified over the following weeks, transitioning to pureed foods and eventually solid foods after a certain period of time. Regular medical check-ups are also necessary after the surgery.
