Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery In Tijuana, Mexico
Are you stuck with an unhealthy lifestyle? Battling the effects of obesity and not seeing results from diets or exercise programs? Weight loss surgery can help you get your life back on track and reduce the health risks associated with being overweight.
A mini gastric bypass, also known as single anastomosis gastric bypass, is an effective and well-established weight loss surgical procedure that combines some of the properties of a gastric sleeve and a standard gastric bypass. The procedure shrinks the stomach, limiting the amount of food it can hold. Your “new” stomach is shaped like a small tube and attached to the small intestine, reducing how many calories you absorb from food.
Compared to gastric bypass surgery, mini-gastric bypass surgery is less-invasive, resulting in a faster recovery and fewer associated risks and complications.
It’s recommended for individuals with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or over, and you can expect weight loss of approximately 60% of your excess weight within one year of the procedure. You are expected to lose even more weight through the first two years of having your procedure.

Mini Gastric Bypass, also known as Single-Anastomosis Gastric Bypass, is an effective and well-established procedure that combines some of the properties of a gastric sleeve and a standard gastric bypass. The mini-gastric bypass is a restrictive and malabsorptive procedure. The process shrinks your stomach, limiting the amount of food you can eat. By bypassing up to 6 feet of the intestines, this procedure also reduces food absorption.
The stomach is divided with a laparoscopic stapler. The majority of the stomach is no longer attached to the esophagus and will no longer receive food creating a new, much smaller, and shaped like a small tube stomach. The remainder of the intestines will then be attached to the new stomach. Food passes through 2 to 7 feet of the intestines from your small tube-like stomach, where it resumes the normal digestive process in the remaining intestine.
Compared to Gastric bypass surgery, mini-gastric bypass surgery is a faster procedure and less invasive resulting in faster recovery and lesser risk while expecting a weight loss of 60% – 80% of a patient’s excess weight.

How Does Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery Work?
Mini gastric bypass surgery reduces the size of the stomach, creating a narrow tube shape by separating your stomach with staples. Your “new” stomach is then attached to the small intestine, bypassing the upper intestine and around 200 cm of the bowel.
A mini gastric bypass works in two key ways:
- Reducing your stomach size so you need less food to feel full.
- Helping you absorb fewer calories and dietary fats
Weight loss following mini gastric bypass surgery has also been shown to improve health conditions caused by obesity, and it may even resolve certain conditions, including type 2 diabetes.
Mini Gastric Bypass Vs Gastric Sleeve
Unlike a gastric sleeve, a mini gastric bypass is reversible. Both procedures have a similar risk of causing gastric reflux (heartburn), but this can normally be managed with diet and lifestyle changes.
Mini Gastric Bypass Vs Gastric Bypass
A mini gastric bypass and a conventional gastric bypass provide similar results. However, if you experience gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) or acid reflux, you should opt for a gastric bypass instead.
