Do You Have to Be Obese to Get Gastric Bypass?

Posted on 06 Jan, 2022
Gastric bypass surgery is a major weight loss surgery where the top part of your stomach is stapled, separating it from the lower section of your stomach. Unlike gastric sleeve surgery, a new opening is then created from the top stomach pouch and connected directly to the small intestine, therefore bypassing the main part of your stomach and some of your small intestine.

After the partial removal of your stomach, the remainder is closed with staples. Undergoing this bariatric surgery is permanent and will limit the amount of food you can eat as your stomach is smaller, and you will feel full quicker. Not only will eating less help you lose weight, but by removing most of the stomach, there is a significant reduction in the Grehlin hormone, which is responsible for stimulating hunger. You will therefore feel more satiated between meals.
