A gastric bypass surgery is normally performed to reduce the size of the stomach by as much as 90%.
A normal stomach can stretch, in some instances this may have been stretched to a capacity in excess of its normal size.
The entire gastric by-pass or Mini Bypass procedure is done laparoscopically, where laparoscopes are used by the Surgeons to gain access through the abdominal wall through small surgical incisions. There is virtually no scarring. There are usually 6 small incision marks on your tummy. The largest one is about 1 cm. These marks will fade away over time.
