Choosing Your Weight Loss Journey: Gastric Bypass or Mini Gastric Bypass?
Gastric Bypass? Or the Mini Gastric Bypass? It’s important to fully understand all your options to make the best decision for your health goals. Our team of experts considers your weight loss targets, eligibility, and surgical procedures when weighing the benefits of both procedures. Check out our article to learn more about these options so you can choose which path best fits you and your goals.
About Gastric Bypass
When undergoing a traditional gastric bypass, surgeons divide your stomach into upper and lower pouches and partially reroute the small intestine. This limits the number of calories you consume in a meal and absorbs during digestion, resulting in short-term and long-term weight loss benefits. Additionally, the procedure effectively treats comorbidities such as hypertension, diabetes, and many others.
A fact to keep in mind is that it is irreversible, but don’t let this discourage you. With the positive transformation you’ll experience you most likely won’t miss the old state of your stomach and small intestine. While it is true that these altered organs cannot be restored to their original state, the good news is that revision procedures are possible, which helps ensure that this solution remains effective and viable for your long-term success.
About Mini Gastric Bypass
The mini gastric bypass surgery is similar to the traditional gastric bypass surgery. Your stomach will be separated into two pouches, with the small intestine redirected.
The mini version requires less rerouting of the intestines and a shorter surgery. Choosing a mini gastric bypass offers the same benefits as a traditional gastric bypass but is less invasive, making recovery easier with a lower risk of complications.
