What is Gastric Bypass Surgery?

Gastric bypass surgery is a weight loss procedure that involves dividing the stomach into two sections and rerouting the small intestine to both. This results in a smaller stomach and a shorter intestinal tract, which makes you feel full faster and absorb fewer calories from the food you eat.

Gastric bypass surgery is a type of bariatric surgery that is typically recommended for people with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher, or a BMI of 35 or higher with at least one obesity-related health condition.

Gastric bypass is also known to improve or resolve many obesity-related health conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea.

How Does Gastric Bypass Work?

Gastric bypass surgery reduces the size of the stomach and reroutes the small intestine, creating a shortcut for food to bypass the stomach and go straight to the small intestine. This reduces the amount of food you can eat and decreases the absorption of calories, resulting in significant weight loss.

After gastric bypass, the ingested food will enter this small stomach pouch and then directly into the small intestine, bypassing most of the stomach and the first section of the small intestine.

Gastric bypass surgery has numerous benefits beyond weight loss. It can also improve or resolve obesity-related health conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea. Additionally, it can lead to increased energy levels, improved mobility, and a better quality of life.

FAQs About Gastric Bypass Surgery in Tijuana, Mexico

Your weight loss will depend on many factors, including adherence to the post-op diet, whether or not you include exercise after recovery, complications as a result of surgery, and individual differences in body physiology. However, a typical patient expects to lose 60-70% of their excess body weight within the first year of surgery. They also typically see a plateau after this, which can be overcome with diet and exercise but should not be a cause for alarm.

It’s not uncommon for patients to lose over 100 lbs with gastric bypass surgery in one year.

Simple preparation tips:

  • Understand that you will be making a big lifestyle change. It may be worth doing some counseling before and after surgery to make sure your mental health is good.
  • Make sure you have a blender or liquidizer at home, because a big part of the post-op diet will be pureed foods.
  • Know what the post-op diet is, and try it out before your surgery date.
  • Bring a few days worth of clothes for your trip to Tijuana. You will be staying overnight in the hospital and several days in a hotel before you are able to go home.

Gastric bypass surgery is a very safe procedure, and we follow all the standards and guidelines expected of surgeons in the United States. The risks are minimal, but they do exist.

Infection is always a risk for surgery when staying in a hospital. There is a risk of internal bleeding, especially if you’ve experienced it before. In more serious cases, there could be a leak in the staple line where the stomach pouch is created. This can be drained out without surgery but in the most serious cases, revision surgery may be required.

Gastric bypass surgery in Mexico costs a lot less than in the United States thanks to lower labor costs, lower malpractice insurance costs, and lower cost of hospital upkeep and cleaning. In fact, these costs are so significant that it is often cheaper to fly to Mexico than it is to stay in the States and get the surgery.

Schedule a consultation to get an accurate quote, including hotel, flight, hospital stay, and the cost of the procedure.

The post-op diet changes as you recover from the procedure. Most patients report eating 4-6 times a day, small meals only.

The post-op diet begins with a clear fluid diet, or a liquid fast. After surgery, this is the only thing the body will tolerate. In a few days, the patient can start a pureed food diet eating only approved foods that have been pureed. Then, the patient can start eating soft foods like mashed potatoes, scrambled eggs and soft ground meats. This will last several weeks. Once the doctor approves it, the patient will then reintroduce more foods back into the diet.

You will no longer be able to eat like you used to when you were obese, pre-op.
