The Mini-Gastric Bypass Procedure in Tijuana

Mini gastric bypass surgery: What to expect

Undergoing a safe, mini gastric bypass surgery in Tijuana Mexico promises tangible, lasting weight loss results because the procedure effectively reduces the size of the stomach and the intestinal tract. The procedure focuses on curtailing the amount of food and calories that enters the stomach. A successful mini gastric bypass surgery in Tijuana Mexico will also reduce the risk of contracting common obesity-related diseases such as hypertension, high cholesterol and diabetes. Broadly speaking, patients looking to have mini gastric bypass surgery can expect the following:

  1. The surgeon will create 4 to 5 small incisions to access the abdominal wall. The incisions typically measure about 1 inch, which is sufficient space to allow the surgeon to place access ports and instruments needed to conduct the operation.
  2. The surgeon will then create a mini stomach by dividing the stomach into two pouches. The first pouch is a narrow tube designed to serve as the new stomach cavity. The small, newly created stomach pouch holds less food, which makes you fuller for longer periods. The remaining, larger pouch (stomach) retains a minimal function since it will no longer receive or process food.
  3. In the next round, a bypass of the small intestines is made. When making the bypass, the surgeon will determine the length of the small intestine to be bypassed. Note, the length differs from one patient to the other. When making this determination, the surgeon will also keep in mind the weight loss expectations of the patient undergoing the procedure.
  4. The surgeons usually use sutures and body tissue staples to connect the pouch and the small intestines. Once the bypass is complete, the surgeon will remove all the instruments and ports used in the exercise before closing the incisions made on the skin.
