Gastric bypass surgery is a bariatric procedure that is performed to help people lose weight when diet and exercise alone have been ineffective. During the procedure, the stomach is divided into two separate pouches and the lower end of the small intestine is reconnected to the smaller section of the stomach. As a result, the amount of food that patients are able to eat is restricted and the absorption of food is limited. This allows patients to lose 10-20 pounds of body weight per month for a year or more following surgery. This procedure can typically be quite expensive, but you can save money on gastric bypass surgery costs by undergoing treatment through Tijuana Bariatrics.

The Gastric Bypass Procedure
At Tijuana Bariatrics, gastric bypass surgery is performed using laparoscopic techniques, meaning the entire procedure is performed through small incisions. Surgical instruments will be inserted through these small openings to access the stomach. The surgeons will make an incision to divide the stomach into two smaller sections, and the upper portion will be connected directly to the small intestine. This makes the stomach much smaller, and connects it to a lower section of the intestine.
To facilitate weight loss after surgery, the stomach can only hold roughly one cup of food at a time. In addition, the food will not be broken down and processed completely. This enables patients to reduce their body weight quickly and adopt and maintain more healthful eating habits. Similar to other types of weight loss surgeries, it is important to note that although this procedure will give you the opportunity to lose weight, adopting a healthier lifestyle is necessary to achieve your goals.
