Traditional (Full) vs. Mini
The option of undergoing mini gastric bypass in Mexico is viable for anybody who would like to experience an affordable, less invasive, yet efficient type of bariatric treatment. The typical gastric bypass entails surgically trimming down the size of the stomach of the patient and a section of the intestine will be bypassed.
This weight loss approach will have a double impact on you. Since you’ll have a smaller stomach you will only be able to consume food in small quantities and will not be able to overeat.
The Mini Gastric Bypass is low risk, has excellent long term weight loss, minimal pain and can be easily reversed or revised. People from all across America and around the world are choosing the MGB as the Best in Bariatric Surgery. Take a look at our affordable, resort-like packages to see which one is right for you.
Which is Best For YOU?
Bypassing a part of your intestine indicates that a significant portion of the food you consume will not be successfully absorbed by your body. The distinction between this type of weight loss reduction procedure and mini bypass is that both have similar objectives, but as their name connotes, the mini bypass is less invasion to your body and does not perform drastic body alterations. Because less surgical treatment will be done, the recovery time is much shorter. You may only be required to stay in the hospital for a day rather than the mandatory four to five days for a traditional operation.
Another noteworthy difference between the traditional and mini gastric bypass operation is the extent of the incision that is utilized. Clearly, the smaller the operation incision is, the less stress you will feel. The mini bypass only involves an incision of three inches. It is much easier to recover from three-inch incision than a seven-inch incision that is typically used when having the traditional gastric bypass operation.

The gastric bypass, whether it is the mini or the traditional method, is not an easy and fast answer to morbid obesity and other weight problems. Remember that there is no quick solution for predicaments of this nature. If you are considering this procedure, you must research about its pros and cons, costs, and side effects. Note that there are many weight loss options available today and a health care professional should be able to discuss all of these options with you. Coming to a decision about which procedure is most beneficial to you should also include the opinion and input of your family and friends. Frequently, insurance companies will not agree to pay for a mini gastric bypass operation if they think that you have never attempted other methods of losing weight like diet changes and a regular workout routine.
