What is gastric bypass?

Gastric bypass in Dubai, also known as Omega Loop Bypass, is a recent and revolutionary weight loss operation. This technique involves the creation of a lower gastric pouch connected to a shorter intestinal loop.

Mini gastric bypass is available as part of our weight loss and obesity programme, which includes an optional 6-month post-operative support programme to ensure you have the best chance of achieving your weight loss goals.

Why is the operation performed?

Mini gastric bypass in Dubai is usually performed to treat morbid obesity by creating a new malabsorption channel to limit the amount of fat and calories absorbed from your diet. Generally, the procedure is performed to reduce the risk of weight-related, potentially life-threatening health problems.

Who is the surgery suitable for?

Gastric bypass surgery in Dubai is recommended for patients with serious health problems associated with morbid obesity, such as uncontrolled diabetes and high cholesterol. The operation is not recommended for patients with a BMI of less than 45. The following is a summary of the conditions that patients must meet before being recommended for this operation:

  • A BMI of 45 or more.
  • Serious health problems associated with obesity.
  • No history of gastrointestinal disease.
  • Commitment to a healthy lifestyle change.

Benefits and potential results

As with other weight loss operations, gastric bypass in Dubai can be a very effective way of losing weight in the long term, depending on the extent to which you change your lifestyle habits. Studies have shown that patients can lose around 30% of their excess weight in the first year following the operation.

In addition, it can also improve or even reverse certain health conditions associated with excess weight, including:

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Hyperlipidaemia
  • Heart disease
  • Sleep apnoea
  • Osteoarticular diseases
  • Infertility


Due to the configuration of the shunt, it is possible to have bile reflux, which is the movement of the contents of the gallbladder into the stomach. In the long term, this could be linked to carcinogenic effects. However, to date there is no evidence of this problem.

Micronutrient supplements may be necessary due to the malabsorption created.

Before surgery

In order to be selected as a valid candidate for the procedure, your doctor may require certain laboratory tests. You should also inform him/her of your usual medication (anticoagulants, antihypertensives or antidiabetics), as there will be certain restrictions on the medicines you can take, as well as what you can eat and drink before the operation.

During the operation

The mini gastric bypass is performed in most cases using a laparoscopic technique. The procedure involves the following steps:

  • After making several small incisions in the abdomen, the surgeon inserts laparoscopic instruments and cuts a small longitudinal section of the stomach to make a small pouch.
  • A small section of your intestine is cut and sewn directly into the stomach pouch.
  • Food will then pass directly into your intestine, preventing the absorption of fats and carbohydrates.

During the procedure, you will sleep under general anaesthetic and be monitored closely to avoid any complications. The whole procedure will take a few hours.

After the operation

Immediately after the operation, you will not be allowed to eat or drink for about 8 hours. After that, your diet will gradually change from liquid to solid and the amount of food you can take will also change. As the mini gastric bypass is a major operation, you may stay in hospital for at least 3 to 5 days. In addition, your doctor in Dubai will recommend that you take vitamin and mineral supplements after your operation to avoid malnutrition.
