Mini Gastric Bypass
Mini gastric bypass has gained a lot of attention in recent years, especially because of the excellent weight loss results and resolution of comorbidities. It is a minimal invasive procedure, requires less time in the operating room, less prone to internal hernias, easily amenable to reversal, provides good metabolic and weight loss results. This procedure has relatively bigger stomach pouch as compared to other surgeries, which gives you luxury to eat moderate volume of food and still lose significant weight.
How It Works
Mini gastric bypass works with the combination of restriction and malabsorption concept, that gives a two-way weight loss effect. This variation of gastric bypass has a different technique as it has a bigger gastric pouch and closes the significant portion of the stomach. It delays the process of emptying the stomach and results in longer fullness feeling.
This weight loss procedure brought a revolutionary change in the bariatric surgery as patients can start eating within days of bypass unlike being on liquid diet for 6 weeks after traditional weight loss surgeries. Mini gastric bypass provides approximately 60% to 80% excess weight loss by reducing the appetite and enhancing satiety.
