Are you tired of the endless cycle of diets and workouts with little to no results? If so, mini gastric bypass surgery might be the long-term weight loss solution you’ve been searching for. This proven procedure offers a new lease on life for those struggling with excess weight who are looking for a sustainable, minimally invasive intervention.
Understanding Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery Requirements
A mini gastric bypass helps patients lose weight and regain control of their health by reducing the size of their stomachs and rerouting their digestive systems.
Unlike the gastric sleeve, which suppresses the appetite by stopping ghrelin (the hunger hormone) from being produced, the mini gastric bypass encourages weight loss by reducing calorie absorption. Learn more about the differences between these procedures in our related blog post.
It’s important to note that not everyone is a suitable candidate for a mini gastric bypass. To qualify for this type of weight loss surgery, requirements generally include:
- Body Mass Index (BMI): A BMI of 35+.
- Comorbidity: Health conditions stemming from the patient’s excess weight, such as Type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure.
- Medical Assessment: A thorough medical evaluation to assess overall health and surgical readiness.
