How a Mini Gastric Bypass Works
A Two-Step Surgery At Our Tijuana, Mexico, Facility
The first step of this bariatric surgery is to reduce the capacity of the stomach by about 75 percent using a laparoscopic stapler. Afterward, the stomach will resemble a thin tube. As the stomach pouch adjusts after surgery, it will be able to hold four to eight ounces.
The second step of the bypass involves attaching the new stomach to the small intestines while bypassing the upper portion of the small intestine. This causes food to flow from the smaller tube-like stomach and bypass a significant portion of the intestines before resuming the normal digestive process in the remaining part of the intestine.
How You Can Lose Weight With a Mini Gastric Bypass
Patients achieve long-term weight loss with this bypass procedure because of three very important changes it creates:
Reducing Food Intake
Your smaller stomach will feel full more quickly, encouraging you to eat less.
Your body absorbs fewer calories after this bariatric surgery because food bypasses a significant portion of the small intestine during digestion.
After modifying your digestive system, signals communicating hunger to your brain will be reduced, helping your weight loss.
Of course, it takes more than surgical modifications to help patients achieve and maintain a healthy weight after a mini gastric bypass procedure. Our staff will also create a personalized and comprehensive nutrition plan to help you lose weight safely after your gastric bypass. Meanwhile, we will provide guidance to help you remain committed to a healthy diet and lifestyle in order to complement your reduced caloric intake.

A Typical Recovery Timeline For Your Weight Loss Surgery
Mini Gastric Bypass as a Revision Surgery
Mini gastric bypass is a popular option for patients considering revision surgery after gastric sleeve surgery, LAP-Band, or gastric balloon. Similarly, those who previously underwent mini bypass surgery can often undergo a duodenal switch or traditional gastric bypass. Because of our outstanding results in this area, about 50 percent of the procedures our Tijuana practice performs are revisions.
"I’ve lost around 40 pounds in 6 months..."
If you're not a candidate for a mini gastric bypass surgery, there are other bariatric surgeries that can help you with weight loss.
Other Bariatric Surgery Options Available at Our Tijuana, Mexico Facility
Roux-en-Y / Traditional Gastric Bypass
Widely known as a traditional gastric bypass, Roux-en-Y is a procedure where the stomach is divided into a lower and upper pouch. The procedure is similar to a mini gastric bypass except it involves more intestinal rerouting and has a shorter overall surgery time. Some people choose a mini gastric bypass instead of a Roux-en-Y procedure because it's a simpler weight loss surgery and less likely to involve complications.
In a gastric sleeve procedure, part of the stomach is removed to reduce your caloric intake. Like a mini gastric bypass, a gastric sleeve is a restrictive surgery that limits how much you can eat. Our surgeon removes the stomach tissue using laparoscopic techniques. Next, using a surgical stapler, he will create a stomach "sleeve" similar to the size and shape of a banana. The remaining gastric sleeve will only be about 10 percent of the size of your natural stomach.
Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery FAQ
What is the difference between mini gastric bypass surgery and gastric bypass performed in the traditional way?
Instead of creating two new junctions in the GI tract, a mini gastric bypass creates only one. For this reason, mini gastric bypass is considered a simpler surgery than a gastric bypass, with fewer risks.
How long does mini gastric bypass surgery take?
The procedure can usually be performed in under an hour. Gastric bypass performed using the traditional method can take as long as four hours.
Does this type of gastric bypass cause weight loss by restricting how much I can eat?
Yes, but it also induces rapid weight loss by bypassing part of the small intestine so that fewer calories are absorbed. A traditionally performed gastric bypass works the same way, but bypasses a greater portion of the small intestine.
How soon will I achieve weight loss after surgery?
This variation on gastric bypass surgery can allow you to lose 60% to 70% of your excess weight within about two years. This will require a special diet and regular physical activity.
"I wish I had done this years earlier."
"I decided to go down based on the recommendation of a friend. I had a great, smooth experience. I flew down and checked in on a Thursday afternoon, had surgery around noon on Friday, recovered on Saturday, and came home to the US Sunday morning. I was back at work on Monday. I think my experience is probably a-typical, but I'm down about 30 pounds in the three weeks since my surgery. I eat very little each day, and always feel full. I'm only 41, but I still wish I had done this years earlier. Highly recommend Oasis of Hope. Great experience, and the price certainly can't be beat." Richard Mellor, 2023
