HOW MINI GASTRIC BYPASS HELPS YOU LOSE POUNDS

RESTRICTIVE

A small stomach pouch is created limiting the amount you can eat

MALABSORPTION

A portion of the small intestine is bypassed. Since the small intestine is responsible for absorbing the calories from food you eat, bypassing a portion of the small intestine results in fewer calories being absorbed, thus creating additional weight loss.

HORMONAL

The hormone Ghrelin has been named the "hunger Hormone" because of its significant effect on appetite. Gastric bypass results in a fall in Ghrelin resulting in reduced appetite.
