Mini-Gastric Bypass

What is the Mini-Gastric Bypass?

More Effective than the Band, Safer than the RNY

Mini-Gastric Bypass is a short, reversible and simple laparoscopic gastric bypass weight loss surgery. If you think you are overweight and want to get rid of that blubber then don’t hesitate in booking an appointment with us, as CosmeSurge offers the best Mini Gastric bypass surgery in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Medical science has for sure advanced over the past few years, proof of which is the short time this surgery requires. The mini gastric bypass takes about 60-90 minutes and the patient stays 3 days at the hospital. The success rate of the Mini Gastric Bypass (MGB) is 95% with minimal pain and can be easily reversed or revised. Gastric bypass is the only operation known to reverse or cure diabetes. Known as MGB for short it is acknowledged by medical experts to cut down hunger by over half in contrast to the band. If you need medical help to lose fat then remember we are just a call away!

The MGB is as safe as the ban and as powerful as the classic RNY bypass but unlike the RNY it is easily revisable (~45-60 minutes.)
