Gastric Bypass versus Mini Gastric Bypass

Laparoscopic Mini gastric bypass surgery is easier, safer and takes less time to perform than traditional laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery. As its name suggests, the mini procedure is a simplified, less complicated form of the traditional weight loss method. The simplified procedure is as successful as other surgical treatments in terms of its ability to help you lose weight, keep it off, and vastly improve your quality of life. The recovery time associated with mini gastric bypass surgery is about the same as the traditional gastric bypass.

A Modified Technique

While laparoscopic traditional gastric bypass surgery is a less invasive surgery than older methods, mini gastric bypass surgery is even more so. This is because mini gastric bypass requires less intestinal rerouting. This less intrusive technique results in a significantly shorter surgery. The procedure is also often recommended because of the minimized risk of infection and other side effects.*

Your Recovery

Recovery from mini gastric bypass takes about three weeks. You can expect to return to work within about 10 to 14 days. During the recovery process, you should:

  • Rest for the first few days 
  • Start walking after the first week 
  • Closely follow your post-op diet 
  • Avoid strenuous activities 

Our team can monitor your recovery and help you achieve your goals.

Affordable & All-Inclusive Options

Although this weight-loss surgery is proven to deliver lasting results, many patients simply cannot afford the procedure. Mini gastric bypass can cost as much as $35,000 in the U.S. At Tijuana Bariatrics, coordinating with teams in Tijuana and Monterrey, we believe that patients should reap all the benefits a healthy body weight provides. We are proud to offer low-cost mini gastric bypass surgery so more patients can positively transform their lives. At $6,500, mini gastric bypass surgery with Tijuana Bariatrics costs just a fraction of what you can expect to pay in the U.S. This rate not only includes the price of your surgery and post-surgical care, but also accommodations and ground travel arrangements (not including airfare).

About Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery

This weight loss procedure requires that your stomach be divided into two pouches, an upper pouch and lower pouch. The lower portion of your small intestine is fused to the smaller upper pouch.  The creation of a smaller stomach pouch, which holds less than a cup of food, will help you get fuller quicker and feel fuller longer, and you will ultimately lose weight faster. By surgically resecting the small, upper pouch to the lower portion of your bowels, food will not be completely broken down, absorbed, or processed within your system prior to exiting your body.

The revolutionary procedure is performed laparoscopically, meaning 4-5 incisions would be performed on your abdomen. The experienced and trusted bariatric surgeon Dr. Fernando Garcia utilizes only the safest, most cutting-edge technology to perform all surgical weight loss treatments. 

Laparoscopic weight loss treatment that is potentially ideal for those who struggle to shed pounds and control their appetite.

Education Comes First

Dr. Garcia educates patients on the complications, however uncommon, associated with weight loss surgery as well as the risks associated with leading an unhealthy, obese lifestyle. Not only does obesity make you feel lethargic and affect your overall emotional, physical, and mental health, but it can cause irreversible damage to you your bones, joints, and muscles. Our bariatric surgery team is committed to equipping you with the tools you need to successfully lead a healthier lifestyle and achieve a more positive state of mind.

Before approving patients for surgery, the dedicated team at Tijuana Bariatrics performs a comprehensive analysis of the patients' medical history and recommends appropriate surgeries based on the goals and objectives of the patient. Patients need to be aware that mini-gastric bypass surgery at our Tijuana or Monterrey facilities will only do so much. A patient must be dedicated to avoiding harmful habits, practicing a healthy lifestyle, and eating and drinking nutritious foods that boost their weight loss results.

Your mini gastric bypass will take place in a hospital, equipped with technology that meets U.S. standards.

Choosing a Bariatric Surgeon

Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery

Mini gastric bypass surgery is a modified version of gastric bypass surgery. At Tijuana Bariatrics, Dr. Fernando Garcia creates a small pouch in the upper part of the stomach, which is connected with the bowels to reduce absorption of nutrients. During mini gastric bypass, Dr. Garcia uses laparoscopic tools so only a few incisions have to be made for surgery.
