What is the restrictive element of Gastric Bypass Roux-en Y?

Before gastric bypass surgery, your stomach can stretch to allow you to keep eating food after you are full. Not only is the actual stomach smaller after surgery but it will also stretch less, so it becomes impossible to eat more than your body needs. This is the restrictive element of gastric bypass surgery.

When you eat, triggers are sent to your brain to tell you to stop eating when your stomach is full.

Because your new stomach pouch is smaller, your brain receives these signals quicker, helping you to recognize when you have eaten enough –  before you over-eat.

As you recover from surgery, the pouch will stretch only slightly – making it easy for you to maintain weight loss long-term because you continue to feel full quickly and will remain full for longer.
