How will band over bypass help me lose weight?

Your doctor will explain in detail how this procedure works before you agree to go through surgery again.

Band over bypass will help you limit your food intake by promoting the sensation of fullness after each meal. Band over bypass is usually a successful procedure and it helps patients re-start their weight loss program easily due to the lap band placed around the stomach that helps reduce the intake of food.

After this intervention, your body will behave similarly as it did during the first months following your initial gastric bypass.
