Will gastric bypass help fatty liver?
First of all, if the liver is too fatty before the surgery, it makes it impossible for the surgeon to get to the stomach without affecting it, which is a reason for disqualifying a patient from the surgery. That is why a pre-op diet is so important (even 1-2 weeks of a special diet may greatly reduce the fat around the liver). Once the surgery is performed, it helps the fatty liver of course. In fact, gastric bypass is said to be the most effective in treating a non-alcoholic fatty liver condition out of all weight loss procedures.
