The mini-gastric bypass is a stomach reduction in severe overweight and the simplest and very frequently used method in the field of bariatric surgery. Due to the mini-gastric bypass, a quick and significant weight loss is possible.
What is an Omega (Mini) Bypass?
The Omega (Mini) Bypass is a bypass variant. A stomach pocket is created, which is slightly larger than the standard bypass. The small intestine is connected to the gastric pocket about 2 meters behind the end of the duodenum. So, only one suture connection is performed in the digestive tract. Weight loss shows better results than standard bypass.
Mini-gastric bypass is a surgical procedure in Turkey in which the amount of edible food is limited and appetite control lies by changing the intestinal bacteria, which helps in weight loss.
Laparoscopic surgery has made significant progress in recent years. Mini gastric bypass has become increasingly popular along the way.

How is the mini-gastric bypass performed?
In this operation, a small part of the stomach is separated. From this, a sleeve stomach is formed and the small intestine is sewn to the upper part of the stomach. This formed sleeve stomach now has the characteristics of the stomach and absorbs less food capacity. The rest of the stomach is located in the body and continues to produce the necessary enzymes and secretions for digestion. Due to the small stomach, patients have less feeling hungry and consume fewer calories.
After the Operation
After the operation, the patient is monitored in the clinic in 3 to 5 days. To avoid pneumonia or thrombosis, patients are mobilized.
In the first 48 hours after the operation, patients can only consume clear, carbonated liquids. For successful adaptation of the body, monitoring in the clinic is required.
What are the differences between mini-gastric bypass and classic gastric bypass?
The classic gastric bypass (also called Roux-en-Y gastric bypass) is more complex than mini-gastric bypass. With the mini-bypass, a stomach reduction is applied, which is slightly larger than with the gastric bypass. However, the small intestine is connected to the gastric pocket two meters after the duodenum. Compared to the classic gastric bypass, the patients lose more weight as a result.
