Mini Gastric Bypass vs. Traditional Bypass Surgery
Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery in Tijuana, Mexico
- MGB surgery has one connection to the small intestine.
- Is a less invasive weight loss surgery.
- Shorter surgery time (90 minutes).
- Faster recovery (Released after 72 hours).
Our surgeons create a narrow tube-like pouch from the stomach which holds approximately 1-2 ounces, restricting the amount of food that can be taken in at one time. The small intestine is then attached or looped to the new pouch approximately six to seven feet from its starting point. This placement bypasses the part of the intestines that allows for less nutrients, calories, and fats to be absorbed by the body, causing weight loss.

Patients can start taking protein shakes, skim milk, diluted oatmeal or pureed potatoes. Remember to eat slowly and in small portions, you can start with two or four ounces per meal and continue to add more ounces with time and always remember to stay hydrated by drinking water.
- Level 3: At this level you can start eating solid food; however, all the food must have the consistency of mashed potatoes. Patients can add to their diets, soft eggs, canned fruit, cottage cheese or chicken. Your meals can now be 6 ounces, but you must continue to take small bites.
- Level 4: For your last diet level, you must incorporate protein. Patients can now eat fish, chicken, turkey, beans and egg whites.
