Mini Gastric Bypass vs. Gastric Bypass
Although a gastric bypass vs. mini gastric bypass has many differences in terms of complication rates, operating time, and recovery time, the long-term outcomes are similar. Three main similarities between the two procedures are as follows:
The size of your stomach pouch is reduced in both surgeries. So, you can eat only small portions of food.
Both procedures will lower your calorie absorption because your small intestine is altered, so a significant amount of your food bypasses the intestine.
Both procedures alter your gut biome and also reduce your hunger which helps with weight loss.
The main difference between a MGB and a gastric bypass is the less intestinal rerouting in the mini bypass. Check here for more differences between the two procedures.
