All You Need To Know About Mini Gastric Bypass

Mini gastric bypass in Dubai is a surgery that attaches a new, tube-like stomach to the small intestines. The upper part of the small intestine is bypassed, so the food flows through a new, smaller tube-like stomach and resumes its normal digestive process in the remaining intestine. The stomach and intestines are not removed, but the new tube-like stomach holds a smaller volume of food, which helps people lose weight.

Complications:

The primary risks of mini gastric bypass surgery are similar to those associated with traditional gastric bypass procedures. Patients may experience reflux of gastric juices, which may require evaluation of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). However, selecting a low-pressure mini gastric bypass can reduce or even eliminate this risk. Some patients also develop bile gastritis, which is not considered a pathological complication.

Recovery time:

While recovery from a mini gastric bypass can last from a few days to several weeks, you must remain patient and follow your surgeon’s instructions to get the most out of your procedure. Patients should avoid heavy lifting and drive for a few weeks after surgery. Additionally, patients should not take prescription pain medications for the first few days. Once off these medications, patients should gradually increase their activity levels to help their bodies recover.

Reversibility:

Mini gastric bypass is a procedure in which the stomach is divided into two pouches, and the small intestine is rerouted. This reduces the number of calories absorbed into the body, resulting in faster weight loss. This procedure is much less invasive than a traditional full-bypass surgery, which involves more intestinal rerouting and is less effective for weight loss. The downside to this procedure is that it is not reversible.

The mini gastric bypass procedure is less invasive than a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass but still involves a portion of the small intestine. During the surgery, a surgeon creates a long, narrow pouch and connects it to the side of the small intestine. The mini gastric bypass procedure is also reversible, so if you change your mind later, it’s not too late to get the surgery done again.

Cost:

Mini gastric bypass surgery in Dubai costs significantly less than in other countries. These procedures are less invasive than traditional bypass surgeries. The aim is to reduce calorie intake by causing malabsorptive or restrictive mechanisms in the stomach. The procedure can be performed for around Dh 5,495 to Dh 6,999.
