Scarless Mini Gastric Bypass
Scarless Mini gastric bypass provides excellent weight loss results with the minimally invasive procedure. After this procedure, the patient has a relatively bigger stomach pouch as compared to other surgeries. Thus, they can treat themselves by eating a moderate amount of food and still lose remarkable weight.
It is conducted with a single incision instead of the traditional four or more laparoscopic incisions. The added benefits include little to no scars, reduced post-operative pain because of the single incision and quicker recovery.
How It Works
Scarless Mini gastric bypass works with the combination of restriction and malabsorption concept, that gives a two-way weight loss effect. This variation of the gastric bypass has a different technique as it has a bigger gastric pouch and closes the significant portion of the stomach. As a result, it delays the process of emptying the stomach and results in longer fullness feeling.
Scarless Mini gastric bypass has brought a radical change in the bariatric surgery as people undergoing this procedure can eat within a few days of bypass unlike being on a liquid diet for 6 weeks. Mini gastric bypass offers approximately 60% to 80% excess weight loss by reducing the appetite and enhancing satiety.
