How is This Surgery Different from a Standard Gastric Bypass?
A mini gastric bypass is simpler and quicker than a standard one since it only creates a single connection to the intestine.
Once our team has cleared you for surgery with the appropriate lab work and testing, we help you get ready for your weight loss procedure. This includes nutritional counseling to increase your chances of weight loss before and after the surgery. If you need to discontinue certain medications for a specific time, our team gives you detailed instructions.
Preparing for your MGB procedure can make a positive difference in your results because you are implementing healthy habits that support your health in the long term. Our staff is here to answer any questions you may have about your mini gastric bypass or any other aspect of your weight loss journey with us. Our website also features patient resources for your convenience.
Recovering from a Mini Gastric Bypass
Before we discharge you from the hospital, our medical staff performs a leak test to ensure that your new stomach works as intended. You can usually expect one to two weeks to fully recover from your MGB procedure.
In terms of weight loss, most people lose about 30 percent of their excess weight after three months and up to 75 percent after one year. An MGB allows you to lose weight quickly and keep it off with a balanced diet and regular physical activity.
