Gastric Bypass Surgery In Tijuana, Mexico With Be Slim Bariatrics

If you are overweight and diet and exercise have not helped you achieve a healthy weight, gastric bypass surgery can help you lose and maintain weight, leaving you free to do all of the things you want to in life. Gastric bypass surgery is also known as Roux-en-Y (roo-en-wy) and is generally considered the “Gold Standard” of bariatric surgery by experienced bariatric surgeons.

The procedure reduces the size of your stomach by forming a small pouch from your stomach, which is attached to the small intestine. As it takes less food to fill the pouch, you will feel fuller quicker and consume fewer calories. The resulting weight loss is generally between 70 and 80% of your excess weight through time — on average, you will lose around 60% of your excess weight in the first year after surgery. Gastric bypass surgery is normally performed if you have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or over and is highly recommended if you suffer from acid reflux.

How Does Gastric Bypass Surgery Work?

Your stomach is divided into two parts, a smaller top portion (pouch) and a larger lower part (remnant pouch). The bypassed stomach no longer stores or digests food. When you eat, food will enter your new pouch, which is around 80% smaller than your previous stomach size. It then passes into the small intestine, bypassing the upper section. This reduces the amount of fat and calories you absorb from the foods you eat and allows for optimal weight loss lowering the chance of needing a bariatric revision in the future. However, it also reduces the vitamins and minerals you absorb from food. 

A gastric bypass works in several key ways:

Weight Loss Expectations From Gastric Bypass Surgery

As your weight decreases, your health will also likely improve. Gastric bypass surgery may improve conditions frequently associated with obesity, resulting in an overall improvement in quality of life and an increased life expectancy.

How Gastric Bypass Surgery Is Performed

On average, gastric bypass surgery takes around 90 minutes. To make sure you are comfortable and pain-free during your surgery, a general anesthetic is administered, which means you will not be conscious or aware of the procedure. If you have never had a general anesthetic, it is like going into a deep sleep, and you will wake up in a recovery area when the operation is complete.

Our experienced board-certified surgeons will perform your gastric bypass surgery in Mexico at a fully equipped modern hospital.

The surgeon makes four to five small incisions on your abdomen and inserts trocars (hollow tubes) to enable surgical instruments to be used. The abdomen is inflated with CO2 gas to give the surgeon room to work while the organs are gently pushed aside.
