Wisconsin Gastric bypass surgery helps you lose weight by restricting the amount of food you can eat, and by changing how food is absorbed.
A small gastric pouch will be created, which reduces the volume of food you can eat before becoming full. You lose weight due to early satiety and decreased food intake.
The path food takes through your intestines will also change, and the food you eat will no longer go through some parts of your intestines, resulting in less absorption of food.
You can expect to lose 60% to 80% of excess weight within the first year to year and a half. Gastric bypass surgery can improve or cure your obesity-related health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure and sleep apnea.
