How Gastric Bypass Surgery Works
In gastric bypass surgery, the weight-loss surgeon uses staples to divide your stomach into a small upper pouch and larger bottom section. Food you eat goes only into the small pouch, which means you’ll feel full sooner.
Next, the surgeon connects your small intestine directly to the pouch. This step lets food bypass some of the intestine, so your body absorbs fewer calories.
