Your weight loss journey is personal. It’s about commitment and having confidence in the surgery you choose. Many people find gastric bypass the right option for them because it’s been around for over half a century and is the second most performed weight loss surgery in the United States. People who undergo gastric bypass also find they lose more weight in less time than with the gastric sleeve, possibly because they experience a feeling of fullness and reduced appetite.
If you and your physician decide gastric bypass is the preferred approach, the surgery will typically be performed through minimally invasive incisions. The end result is a smaller stomach that limits the amount of food you can eat and the nutrients your body can absorb.
