Gastric bypass shrinks your stomach size and reroutes your digestive tract. During surgery, doctors divide your stomach to create a new, smaller stomach. The new stomach is attached to the small intestine and bypasses the larger part of your original stomach. Your new stomach is now much smaller — as is the amount of food it can hold.
