How Does Gastric Bypass Surgery Help With Weight Loss?
Gastric bypass, also called Roux-en-Y, aids weight loss in two ways:
Restricts Food Intake
After your bariatric surgery, the amount of food you will be capable of consuming is limited because of the small size of the newly formed stomach pouch. The new, smaller stomach will only hold less than a single cup of food.
Restricts Caloric Absorption
The food you eat will move from the stomach pouch directly to the lower part of the small intestine. Much of the calories in the food will not be absorbed, which helps obese patients to lose weight quickly and maintain healthy eating habits.
How Gastric Bypass Was Created
Gastric bypass was developed by Dr. Edward Mason and Dr. Chikashi Ito after they noticed that patients who underwent partial gastrectomy had a difficult time gaining weight. The gastric procedure was based on Dr. Roux’s turn of the century technique. In 1967, Drs. Mason and Ito performed the first bariatric Roux-en-Y surgery. The availability of surgical staples allowed the surgeons to decrease the size of the stomach and bypass a portion of the small intestine to restrict food intake and caloric absorption.
Am I a Good Candidate for Gastric Bypass Surgery?
The best way to learn if you are a good candidate for gastric bypass surgery is to fill out our online form to begin the process of a free virtual consultation. You will be required to go through a detailed screening procedure to confirm your suitability for gastric bypass surgery.
Most obese patients who are struggling to lose weight make good candidates for gastric bypass at our Baja California practice. However, some factors can affect your candidacy:
Gastric bypass surgery is suitable for those who have a BMI of at least 35. This bariatric surgery can cause extreme weight loss, so patients must have sufficient excess weight to lose.
Patients experiencing serious obesity-related health concerns such as diabetes, high blood pressure, hypertension, sleep apnea, or GERD are good candidates for this weight loss surgery.
You need to be ready to make permanent changes to your daily life after gastric bypass surgery. We will provide long-term follow-up plans that are specifically designed to monitor your nutritional levels, your lifestyle, your behavior, and your medical condition.

I am so happy to be part of this family and be on this weight loss journey. Had my sleeve on 12/4/18 and am 70 lbs down. I was impressed with the staff from the moment I stepped into the clinic. From Carlos, my case manager, to Dr. Vega and the team that performed my work up. To the incredibly funny anesthesiologist who made me laugh. To Dr. Verboonen and the surgical team and last, but not least, to the nurses that took care of me. You were awesome! If you’re looking for a great team, this is the place to go!View On Google
What a great experience with the Dr and his staff at their obesity goodbye center! They spent time with me to find out the best program I needed and they have a machine that does all my exact measurements and emailed me my results. I have lost 4lbs this week and I have a long way to go but they offered everything! I went with Dr. Verboonen in hopes that the gastric sleeve surgery would be done by the very best gastric sleeve surgeon in tijuana mexico, and guess what, that’s exactly what happened.

The Surgical Process of Gastric Bypass
This laparoscopic procedure restricts your food intake by creating a smaller stomach and limits your caloric absorption by bypassing part of your small intestine.

"Gastric bypass has the highest success ratio of any bariatric surgical procedure."
Are There Any Risks to Gastric Bypass Surgery?

Gastric Bypass vs Gastric Sleeve What's the Difference?
Weight Loss Results
Gastric bypass typically results in greater weight loss than gastric sleeve. For morbidly obese patients, gastric bypass is typically the preferred option.
Gastric bypass has shown greater results in improving weight-related conditions like type 2 diabetes and obstructive sleep apnea than sleeve gastrectomy.
Because gastric sleeve surgery only affects the stomach, it typically has a quicker recovery time and a lower risk of surgical complications.
