After Care

The importance of aftercare and support with the MGB is often undervalued. Most people think the procedure is robust and expect to lose weight without much effort, especially in the early months.

However, the power of bypass will subside over time. The diet and exercise routines you keep after surgery will help to maintain your weight.

Mini Gastric Bypass vs. Gastric Bypass

Gastric Bypass vs. Mini Gastric Bypass | Nuevo Laredo, Mexico

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:

Restrictive

The size of your stomach pouch is reduced in both surgeries. So, you can eat only small portions of food.

Malabsorptive

Both procedures will lower your calorie absorption because your small intestine is altered, so a significant amount of your food bypasses the intestine.

Cause Gut Changes

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.
