Gastric bypass is
the common name giving to different kinds of weight loss surgeries that
involves bypassing a part of small intestines. Generally
the surgery involves cutting up the stomach into two . The smaller
first pouch and a bigger pouch. These two are then re-attached to the
small intestines in differnet ways. Hence different types of the sugery.
loss surgeries are either mal-absorptive meaning they reduce rate of
calorie absorption or restrictive. Restrictive surgery
involves restricting the amount of food you can
method involves combining these two effects in the same
calorie intake, reduce appetite and reduce calorie absorption to result
to weight loss.
particular gastric bypass involves reducing the functional size of the
stomach into the small first pouch into the size of a golf ball to the
size of a
tennis ball. This reduces calorie intake as well as appetite. Due to
the small stomach you eat less. And since it fills with just a small
amount of food your brain gets the signaling that your stomach is
further involves re-arranging the intestines to allow the food eaten to
bypass most of the absorption hence the name gastric bypass.
is this severe mutilation of the digestive system that makes many
uneasy about weight
loss surgery. However
if you can find an
appropriate weight loss program
then you can lose weight without having to undergo surgery.
example a common error in losing weight is obssesing about calories.
Actually to lose weight fast,
easily and permanetly you should ignore
calories. Infact you need to "Go Beyond
Calories" and focus on two things, just two
things. Watch this short video below to see these two
weight with this kind of surgery is usually drastic and
procedures usually end up having both a physiological as
well as psychological effect which leads to this huge drop in
weight. Many doctors offices and hospitals specialize in gastric bypass
surgery. It takes a well rounded staff to ensure that each patient is
taken care of from the time they come in for their assessment and
insurance clearance, to the time they leave to go home for recovery.
One of the key roles in this is that of a healthcare administrator.

Types of Gastric Bypass
there are three types of bypass procedures
this procedure, the upper part of the stomach is separated from the
rest of the stomach using weight loss staples or a plastic

directly to the lower end of the smaller intestines.
way the food comes through the oesophagus after swallowing into the
small stomach pouch and out through the lower end of the small
intestines called Jejunum and finally to the large intestines
procedure allows the food to by-pass the upper end of the small
intestines (duodenum). It also has the distinctive "Y" connection of
the "amputated" intestine (duodenum) where it is reconnected to the
rest of the intestines to deliver digestive juices.
it’s at the duodenum that a lot of dietary fat is absorbed
the procedure help further reduce calorie intake by reducing fat
absorption. Roux-en-Y and it’s close variance are the most
common bypass surgeries.
This procedure is usually done
laparoscopically and takes only about 30

has the advantage of shorter hospital stay and is even insinuated to
have better results than Roux-en-Y.
This procedure is more mutilating than the other two. It involves
completely removing the large secluded section of the stomach. The
small pouch is then also attached to the lower end of the small
intestines. The upper end of the intestines that is usually normally
connected to the stomach is sealed and left un-attached within the
opposed to all other gastric bypass procedures in this operation about
half of the stomach is removed completely. (Note not nearly the whole
stomach). This is done vertically rather than horizontally which is
normally the case when creating the small stomach pouch.
removal is nearly similar to the mini gastric bypass, only that in this
case the stomach is larger than a narrow tube.
Similarly unlike the other procedures, the natural pyloric valve that
controls the release of food from the stomach is left intact.
left intact is some significant length of upper small intestines
(duodenum). This is unlike the other procedures that completely
eliminate and bypass the duodenum. This short duodenum is connected
directly to the lower end of intestines bypassing the middle

irreversible, so careful consideration should be put into choosing
surgery to lose weight.
And as a technique bariatric
surgery is really a support structure to

things you should do. These two will lead to weight loss in the hundred

fat burning which in turn results to consistent weight loss.
