How is the surgery done ?

Bridging is a complex operation performed under general anesthesia. The operation lasts about three hours.

The intervention of the gastric bypass is the most common operation performed in the world. First, a small gastric pouch is created in a piece of the stomach together or by vertical stripes. This means that you can eat and reduce the absorption of calories and nutrients.

This procedure can be done by laparoscopy. This means that the small incisions that have been made are of a small scar and a faster recovery period.

After the surgery:

The time required to resume normal activity after gastric bypass varies depending on the physical condition of the patient, the nature of the activity and the type of gastric intervention performed. Many patients recover within six to eight weeks. Recovery is faster with patients who experience a less invasive procedure.

After a gastric bypass surgery, doing physical activities is important in your weight loss program. Exercise not only helps burn calories, but builds and preserves muscle tissue.

Since you will be on a reduced diet and lose weight fast, exercise will protect your muscle tissue and help you burn fat tissue and have the energy the body needs.
