Mini Gastric Bypass

How it works:

In the first part of mini gastric bypass surgery, the stomach is divided, and a small tube of stomach created with it becomes the pouch. This is the most restrictive part of the procedure and means that only a very small amount of food can be taken at any one time. Next, the surgeon brings up a loop of bowel (about 200–300 cm long) and joins this to the lower part of the stomach pouch. (The joining of bowel to bowel or stomach to bowel is called an "anastomosis"). This means that food passes from the small pouch into the small bowel, where it meets the digestive juices that have moved downward from the main part of the stomach. In effect, therefore, about 2-3 metres of small bowel have been bypassed before absorption of mood (and calories) can take place. Fewer calories absorbed mean weight loss. The mini gastric bypass (MGBP) works both by restricting the amount of food that can be eaten at any one time and by causing malabsorption, as well as by altering gut hormones involved in appetite control. Single-incision lattice sleeve How it works: The single incision laparoscopic (SILS) procedure is performed when the 4-5 incision laparoscopic gastric sleeve is performed, but with only a single laparoscopic incision through the belly button. The biggest difference between the two is that the single incision (SILS) has the added benefit of leaving little to no scars and reduces postoperative pain, which allows for a quicker recovery. The single incision (SILS) is less invasive than a traditional gastric sleeve; therefore, the complication rate is lower. The advantages of single-incision laparoscopic surgery are:
  • 1. A single virtual scar-less incision through the belly button
  • 2. Reduced postoperative pain
  • 3. Less invasive due to being done laparoscopically

Frequently Asked Question's(FAQ's)

1. How Do I Find a Bariatric Surgeon?

Clearly, you want a bariatric surgeon who is very experienced in this specialty area. Research shows that the more experienced the surgeon, the lower the risk of death or complications during or after the surgery. To identify an excellent surgeon, collect a list of names. Ask friends and family members. Ask coworkers. You might be surprised -- lots of people often know others who have had weight loss surgery and want to share their doctor's name.

2. How Will My Physical Appearance Change After Weight Loss Surgery?

As you start losing weight, you will likely be thrilled with your new appearance. However, many people who lose a lot of weight often find their skin looks loose and baggy. You may want plastic surgery to remove this excess skin.

3. Will My Social Life and Relationships Change After Weight Loss Surgery?

Your relationships with friends and family may indeed change after weight loss surgery. For many people, food and drink are the basis for socializing. After weight loss surgery, you must find other ways to socialize -- ways that aren't focused on food.

4. Will I Feel Like Myself After I Lose Weight?

Losing a significant amount of weight is no small matter. In fact, the effects are profound and far-reaching. Life may seem disconcerting at times. You may feel odd, not quite like yourself. You may feel overwhelmed by the lifestyle changes you must make for the rest of your life. You may have reached for food as comfort -- and have difficulty giving it up. A therapist can help you get through this complicated period. A support group can also help. Ask your doctor about support groups for people who have had weight loss surgery. It helps to meet people who are making the same adjustments you're making -- and can help keep you on track with your weight loss program.

5. What Lifestyle Changes Are Necessary After Weight Loss Surgery?

Over time, some people regain weight despite bariatric surgery. Some eat high-calorie or high-fat foods instead of healthy foods -- and eat them too often. Some people rely on "soft meals" such as ice cream and milk shakes. The body itself may change over time, too, leading to weight gain. The digestive tract might begin absorbing more calories. Even the size of your surgical stomach can expand gradually over time.

6. How Much Weight Will I Lose After Surgery?

After gastric bypass surgery, most people can expect to lose between 66% and 80% of their extra body weight. Most of this is lost within the first two years. After gastric banding, people lose 40% to 50% of their extra weight, typically within the first two years after the surgery.
