Gastric Bypass surgery reroutes the digestive system to bypass a portion of the stomach and small intestine, reducing the amount of food you can eat and the calories absorbed.

It’s typically recommended for individuals with a BMI over 40, or over 35 with obesity-related health issues, and who haven’t succeeded with traditional weight loss methods.

Like all surgeries, risks include infection, bleeding, and complications related to anesthesia, plus specific risks like nutritional deficiencies and gastric leakage.

Patients often lose 60-80% of their excess body weight within the first 18-24 months post-surgery, depending on their commitment to lifestyle changes.

Recovery varies; many return to normal activities within 3-5 weeks, with full dietary and physical adjustments taking several months.

Yes, to prevent nutritional deficiencies, you’ll likely need to take vitamins and minerals for life.

Post-operative diets start with liquids, progressing to pureed, soft, and finally normal foods, focusing on high-protein, low-sugar, and low-fat items to support weight loss and nutritional health.

While technically possible, reversal is complex and risky, typically reserved for serious complications.
