The Gastric Bypass Process

Gastric bypass surgery (also known as Roux-en-Y) is one of the most successful bariatric surgery procedures. It works by dividing the stomach into two separate pouches—an upper pouch and a lower pouch. The smaller pouch is then connected to the lower portion of the small intestine. Finally, the small intestine is rerouted to connect to both pouches.

Minimally Invasive Gastric Bypass Surgery Shorter Recovery, Less Discomfort

The Tijuana Bariatrics network of physicians offers laparoscopic surgery to perform bariatric surgery through several tiny incisions instead of one large single incision, resulting in less discomfort, minimized scarring, and a shorter recovery.

These laparoscopic tools include a special camera so that the bariatric surgeon can clearly view the treatment area on a monitor while resizing the stomach, rerouting the intestines, and suturing the tissue.

Call Tijuana Bariatrics in Tijuana, Mexico, to request your free consultation and learn more about how you can lose weight through this laparoscopic procedure.

Free Consultation

The first step is to contact our bariatric surgery office in Tijuana, Mexico, to set up your free virtual consultation. If the doctor determines that you are a candidate, your surgery will be scheduled.

Create Incisions

On the day of your surgery, after you have been made comfortable, your bariatric surgeon will make small incisions so that the laparoscope can be inserted and your doctor can alter the digestive tract.

Divide the Stomach

The stomach is divided into two sections. The smaller upper stomach pouch will now hold less than one cup of food.

Connect the Intestines

The small upper stomach pouch is then connected to the lower portion of the small intestine and incisions are closed.

The Recovery Timeline

It is important to follow the bariatric surgeon's recommendations throughout the recovery period to prevent complications from your Roux-en-Y. If you follow your surgeon's instructions, you can expect:

2-3 Days

Patients typically spend two to three days in the hospital.

Two Weeks

Incisions heal within about two weeks and patients can return to work.

One Month

You can typically begin more strenuous activities after about a month.

Weight Loss in the First Year

With this comprehensive weight-loss approach, most patients will experience a substantial reduction in excess body weight within the first six months of their weight loss surgery.*  After about a year, most patients who follow their post-surgical instructions, including their diet and exercise recommendations, can achieve their goal weight.*

​Keeping the Weight Off

During the first year or two after your bariatric surgery, diet and exercise changes often come easily. With all the rapid weight loss, patients are often excited about staying healthy by eating right and being active. Once weight loss goals are reached, however, it may be tempting to be less diligent about sticking with healthy diet and exercise habits. To maintain a healthy weight, patients should continue to exercise, keep snacking to a minimum, eat small portions, and have a strong support system that encourages good habits.

Ongoing Health Benefits

The list of direct and indirect health benefits connected to significant weight loss is long and impressive. Obesity-related conditions that may be resolved after bariatric surgery include sleep apnea, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, and diabetes. Being more active and fit can lead to a better social life, stronger interpersonal relationships, and even improved job performance. Given all the physical and social advantages gastric bypass patients enjoy, it should be no surprise that many of them also report improved mental health and self-esteem.*

More Benefits of Gastric Bypass Surgery

Gastric bypass surgery is one of the most common forms of bariatric surgery performed in Tijuana and the rest of the world because of its safety, efficacy, and impressive success rate. Here are more reasons why this laparoscopic procedure remains a popular choice for patients who need to lose weight:

Hypertension Relief

Essential hypertension is relieved in over 70 percent of patients and medication requirements are greatly reduced.


Hyperlipidemia Reduction

Hyperlipidemia is corrected in over 70 percent of patients.


Obstructive Sleep Apnea Relief

Obstructive sleep apnea can usually be improved with weight loss. As a result, bariatric surgery can relieve OSA and reduce symptoms like snoring.


Diabetes Reduction

Type 2 diabetes may be reduced in some patients, usually leading to normal blood sugar levels without medication, sometimes within days of surgery.


Life Improvements

Through Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery, your entire quality of life will improve. Many patients see a reduction in lower back and joint pain, venous thromboembolic disease, gastroesophageal reflux, and have more energy to do the things they enjoy.

Why is the stomach resized?

In the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass procedure, the resizing of your stomach and rerouting to your small intestine is designed to limit your food consumption and caloric absorption. The smaller stomach pouch limits the amount of food you can consume before feeling full.

How long does recovery take?

Typically, it takes about three to five weeks to fully recover from Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. 

Is a gastric bypass safe?

For most patients, yes. Gastric bypass can produce rapid weight loss with minimal side effects, and less than two percent of patients experience complications from surgery.

Why should I travel to Mexico for weight loss surgery?

When you travel to Mexico for weight loss surgery, you can get world-class care at an affordable cost. As part of the cost of your package, Tijuana Bariatrics will oversee all aspects of your accommodations and on-ground travel arrangements. You will stay at the beautiful Marriott Hotel in Tijuana which is accustomed to catering to the needs of international travelers. The locations of both the hotel and the hospital are in prosperous neighborhoods that are known for their peacefulness and safety.

What's the difference between gastric sleeve and gastric bypass?

Both gastric sleeve and gastric bypass create a smaller stomach pouch to restrict the amount of food you are able to consume. However, in a gastric sleeve, there is no rerouting of the small intestine. While both gastric sleeve and gastric bypass are effective bariatric surgeries, gastric sleeve surgery only restricts the amount of food you consume, not the caloric absorption from the shortened small intestine.
