Life After Gastric Bypass Surgery? HKB Renaissance Can Help

So you’re thinking about undergoing Gastric Bypass Surgery.

Let’s begin with the basics.

 What is Gastric Bypass Surgery (GBP)?

GBP involves the division of the stomach into two parts, one small and one large, while also rearranging the small intestine to connect each part.  The manner in which the small intestine is rearranged varies from patient to patient.

Why do people undergo GBP?

GPB is usually sought in extreme cases for weight loss, in order to treat and prevent other health issues, like diabetes, hypertension, and sleep apnea.

 What makes someone a candidate for GBP?

In order for an individual to undergo GBP, they must be at risk for any of the above health issues and morbidly obese (BMI greater than 40).

 What can I expect after GBP?

In the months immediately following GBP, patients should be prepared to deal with any of the following:


  • Emotional and physiological impact
  • Extreme change in diet
  • Low energy levels
  • Muscular weakness
  • Increased fatigue

As with any procedure, the first few months of recovery are the most difficult.  After the more extreme psychological and physical effects of the surgery have passed, patients typically report that they feel better and more energized than before the procedure.

Although they feel better than ever, the most common complaint among patients is in regard to the excess skin left as a result of massive weight loss.  This is where Your Renaissance can help.  HKB Renaissance is a top Charlotte plastic surgeon, specializing in body contouring procedure in Charlotte, including liposuction and abdominoplasty.
