Full Gastric Bypass Surgery Mexico
Full Gastric Bypass surgery in Mexico
The Full Gastric bypass surgery in Mexico (also known as the Roux-en-Y or RNY) is recommended for the treatment of morbid obesity if sustained weight loss could not be achieved by dietary efforts. As in the Mini Gastric Bypass surgery the digestive system is re-routed to reduce the amount of food a patient can eat and the amount of food that is absorbed by the body.
How does it work?
In any of the gastric bypass surgeries in Mexico, one part of the stomach is separated with staples to create a gastric pouch. This procedure is designed to reduce the quantity of food patients can eat before he/she “feels full”, resulting in a reduction of the amount of nutrients and calories which can be absorbed. The combination of less food consumed and fewer calories absorbed is what makes the full gastric bypass such an effective weight loss treatment. In a mini gastric bypass, the pouch is long and narrow, while in the traditional gastric bypass the gastric pouch is higher, smaller and round. The stomach pouch is totally separated from the rest of the stomach and instead is connected directly to the middle portion of the small intestine. The tube connecting the pouch to the jejunum is called the “roux limb” or “food channel”.
Meanwhile, gastric juices from the stomach and digestive enzymes from the pancreas, and bile, continue to flow from the lower part of the stomach and duodenum down the small intestine which is referred to as the “alimentary channel”. These two channels meet at a Y-shaped junction which gives the procedure its name – and together form a common channel where absorption of nutrients and calories begins. Our bariatric surgeons in Mexico perform the Roux-en-Y full gastric bypass laparoscopically.
By using multiple smaller incisions a laparoscopic tool is inserted, which offers a visual guide to the inside of the abdomen during the procedure. The laparoscopic Roux-en-Y produces less scarring and lets you recover faster than the traditional Roux-en-Y-gastric bypass performed in open surgery. This procedure is performed under general anesthesia and time in surgery is approximately one to three hours, followed by a one- to two day stay in the hospital.
The Benefits of a full gastric bypass surgery in Mexico
During the first year, following the full gastric bypass surgery in Mexico, most people lose about 10 to 20 pounds per month. This ratio will decrease over time and adhering to a dietary regimen and a daily exercise program will provide the largest weight loss. Most patients who follow a plan after their surgery may lose 50%, 70% or even more of their extra weight within the first two years. Losing enough weight after surgery may improve many medical conditions if they have been present before your full gastric bypass surgery.
Increased Self-Esteem – Higher Energy Levels
In comparison to most surgical weight loss procedures, the mini gastric bypass surgery in Mexico takes less time in the operating room. It usually takes between 30 and 45 minutes and the patient will be able to walk within 2 to 3 hours. The patient is discharged within 24 to 48 hours.
Fewer risks because of laparoscopy
Because the bariatric surgeon is using a laparoscope, the procedure is less invasive and therefor holds fewer risks. Laparoscopy reduces the risk of having scars or developing a hernia after your gastric bypass surgery in Mexico.
Mini Gastric Bypass in Mexico is less expensive
A full gastric bypass can greatly improve the quality of life not only because of an improvement in appearance and an increase in mobility, but also because it can reduce the number and severity of health problems such as:
- Type 2 diabetes
- High blood pressure
- Obstructive sleep apnea
- High cholesterol
- Gastroesophageal disease (GERD).
The full gastric bypass surgery alone is not a solution for weight loss. It can prepare you to consume less food, but you still have to do much of the work. To lose weight and avoid complications from the procedure, you will need to follow the exercise and eating guidelines that your doctor and dietitian gave you.
