Gastric Bypass Surgery


Gastric bypass surgery alters the way your stomach and small intestine process food, allowing you to lose weight. Your stomach will be smaller after the surgery. With less food, you will feel full. Some portions of your stomach and small intestine that absorb food will no longer be able to absorb the food you eat. As a result, your body will not get all of the calories it needs from the food you consume.

Aakash Healthcare is one of the best hospitals for gastric bypass surgery.

What is gastric bypass surgery?

One of the most prevalent and successful weight loss treatments/surgery is gastric bypass. The long-term effects of this surgery have been thoroughly investigated and recorded, and it is now one of the most popular and effective weight-loss methods available. It's known as "The Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB)" and is the "gold standard" of weight-loss surgery. Other bypasses should not be confused with this one. The gastric bypass creates a small stomach pouch that prevents high food intake and allows for much smaller meals, resulting in less calories consumed. A large section of the stomach and a portion of the small intestine are bypassed (food does not enter the small intestine) resulting in food malabsorption that leads to lesser calorie absorption.

Advantages/Benefits of gastric bypass surgery:

  • Weight loss is sustained (long-term) after gastric bypass surgery
  • Limits the amount of food that can be eaten, resulting in weight loss
  • Improves metabolism and diabetes condition by producing beneficial changes in intestinal hormones
  • Because most patients begin walking the day after surgery, bypass surgery is associated with less pain and a quick recovery
  • It is the "gold standard" approach for weight loss
  • Aids in the major improvement of linked illnesses such as diabetes, high blood pressure, joint pains, sleeping problems, infertility concerns, and so on.
  • The procedure can be reversed.
  • There is no removal of any section of the stomach or intestine from the body

Bariatric surgery includes some potential health risks, both in the short term and long term.

Common risk factors associated with the surgical procedure can include:

  • Excessive bleeding
  • Infection
  • Adverse reactions to anaesthesia
  • Blood clots
  • Lung or breathing problems
  • Leaks in the gastrointestinal system
  • Death (rare)

Post-Operative Instructions for Bariatric (weight loss) surgery

  • Patients are able to walk around the same day of procedure.
  • Patients are admitted to the hospital for three to four days and are discharged when their oral fluid intake reaches 1.5 to 2 litres per day
  • Dressings should be removed during the first follow-up appointment, which should take place between the 7th and 10th day after surgery
  • Patients can return to their regular activities as soon as they feel ready. They must pay attention to and react to their body language. Physical activity, in fact, aids their early recovery and sense of well-being.
  • Follow the diet instructed by your nutritionist
  • Maintain constant contact with your surgeon.
