Gastric bypass surgery is also called Roux-en-Y bypass procedure and is the most prefered weight loss procedure. In gastric bypass surgery weight loss is achieved by reducing the functional portion of the stomach to a pouch one ounce or less in size, and by creating a stoma, a small opening between the stomach and the intestine. After gastric bypass surgery, a small size of the stomach pouch is created in the patient’s body to have a sensation of fullness after eating only a small quantity of food. The small stoma delays stomach emptying, making the sensation of fullness last longer. Before the gastric bypass surgery is performed, you will undergo some medical diagnosis and tests with your surgeon’s supervision. Pre-operative analysis of  gastric bypass surgery would be performed so as to ensure maximum chances of success for the procedure. The patient must stop to smoke and consume alcohol, sometimes even a few weeks before gastric bypass surgery. This is to be done to avoid complications and side effects that may occur during gastric bypass surgery.
