I went in February to Iran for a nose surgery. I arranged everything through Health agency Iran. Shoheila is 24/7 available to you if needed. She was there for me whenever I needed her. My experience with Health agency Iran was beyond expectations. Good service, professionalism from day 1 until I went back to the Netherlands. I can recommend Shoheila from Health agency Iran to everyone. Please don't be put off by the media that Iran is a dangerous country. Because it's not!! Iran is a beautiful country and will definitely go back. @Shoheila keep going with the good work, you made a lot of people happy! ❤️

I recommend that all future clients of the Iran Health agency ask for Soheila because she is simply the best. Not only does she take all the time to answer your questions before you leave, but she comes to pick you up at the airport, takes you to restaurants, goes shopping with you. Because I was more comfortable being taken care of in my own room, Soheila arranged this for me, so a super friendly nurse came to take care of me every morning in my room at the hotel. Soheila stayed by my side in the hospital and also took me to my room, after discharge. She also helps with your choices of hotels and relaxation. Once home, she sends regular messages to ask how I am doing. Do not hesitate, choose Soheila at Iran Health clinic.

What is Gastric Bypass surgery?

Gastric bypass surgery involves reducing the size of the stomach and bypassing part of the small intestine. By reducing the capacity of the stomach to hold food and reducing the absorption of food in the small intestine, obese people are able to lose weight. Gastric bypass surgery is also called bariatric or weight-loss surgery. In general, these procedures are performed when a person cannot lose weight through exercise and diet, or when they have acute health problems due to their excess weight.

Gastric bypass surgery is more effective than other bariatric surgeries such as gastric sleeve in Iran and banding, with 60 to 70% of patients losing their extra weight within 9 to 14 months after surgery. However, all forms of surgery, including gastric bypass surgery, can have risks and side effects. Also, in order to enjoy the benefits of these surgeries in the long run, you need to make constant changes in your diet and lifestyle.

Gastric Bypass in Iran

Gastric bypass surgery in Iran is one of the weight loss surgeries in which a part of the stomach is removed and the rest is attached to the initial part of the small intestine.

This surgery changes your digestive system by reducing the amount of food you eat or reducing the absorption of nutrients. Sometimes both effects work together to help you lose more weight in a shorter period.

Gastric bypass surgery in Iran should be done when you have not seen results from diet and exercise or you have serious health problems due to high weight. Read this article to know more about this weight-loss surgery.

Who can benefit from Gastric Bypass Surgery?

Gastric bypass surgery in Iran is suitable for patients with a BMI over 40 who are in the category of grade 3 obesity and have tried different diets without success.
When your BMI is 35-39 and you suffer from health problems such as Type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, or high blood pressure, you may also benefit from this weight-loss surgery.
When your BMI is 30 to 34, but you have very serious obesity-related problems.
This is the best alternative treatment for people who have a sweet tooth and do not respond to restrictive stomach techniques like gastric banding.
For obese patients or those who have already had gastric banding and suffer esophageal dilatation and reflux complications, gastric bypass surgery in Iran is a good option.
Candidates for this surgery are people who cannot visit the doctor regularly for adjustments to the gastric bands, etc., and want a permanent solution with fewer post-op visits.
Gastric bypass surgery can reduce mortality in diabetic patients and improve their symptoms by 80 to 90%.
People who are suitable candidates for this weight loss surgery are usually faced with one or more of the following problems due to obesity:

  1. Gastric acid reflux into the esophagus
  2. Heart disease
  3. Hypertension
  4. High blood cholesterol
  5. Obstructive sleep apnea
  6. Type 2 diabetes

    However, gastric bypass surgery is not suitable for everyone who is severely obese. Eligibility for surgery requires compliance with specific medical guidelines, and rigorous checks will be made to assess your eligibility. You will be allowed to have surgery if your efforts to lose weight with exercise and diet are unsuccessful.

Surgical Methods Used in Gastric Bypass surgery


Laparoscopic Surgery (Minimally Invasive Surgery)

As in robotic gastric bypass surgery, laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery is performed through a few small incisions made in the patient’s abdomen. In laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery, a camera called the laparoscope provides the surgeon with a 2D view of the inside of the patient. The surgeon performs the surgery, guided by this image, using long, straight laparoscopic instruments. Obesity surgeries such as gastric bypass or other surgeries performed on obese patients may make the operation difficult for the surgeon, as the patient’s abdominal wall is thick, and excessive pressure applied to the opened incisions may cause pain in the postoperative incisions.


Open Surgery

Open gastric bypass surgery is performed through a large incision made in the patient’s abdomen. An open surgery’s major advantage is that the surgeon can see the tissues as he performs the operation. However, the size of the incision can result in post-operative pain and delay the return to daily activities.


Robotic surgery (Robot-Assisted Minimally Invasive Surgery)

Robotic gastric bypass surgery is performed through several small incisions in the patient’s abdomen. The surgeon performs the operation from the surgeon’s console, which is a few steps away from the patient during the operation. At the same time, another surgeon at the head of the patient helps the surgeon at the console by including the necessary materials or instruments during the operation. The special camera of the robot provides the surgeon on the console with a true 3D view of the inside of the patient, which can be enlarged up to 16 times, and at the same time, this image is transmitted to the operating room via a monitor and guides the surgeon and nurse at the bedside. The console instantly transmits all movements of the surgeon into the patient in a more sensitive and sharper way, eliminating hand tremors. After robotic gastric bypass surgery, the patient can return to daily life very quickly because of the very small incisions.

What happens during Gastric Bypass Surgery in Iran?

Gastric bypass surgery comes in different forms, but it is all performed in a hospital setting, under general anesthesia. Today, gastric bypass surgery is usually performed laparoscopically. In recent years, robotic surgery has also been used.

In general, it is done in two stages:

Stage 1: During the first stage, a gastric band or stitches are used to divide the stomach into two parts; the upper part is smaller, and the lower part is larger. A pouch (upper part of the stomach) is where the food that has been taken in will go. Only 28 grams of food are kept in the small part of the stomach, which is the size of a walnut. Therefore, despite eating less, the patient feels satisfied and loses weight.
Stage 2: The surgeon removes part of the small intestine from the digestive tract, thereby shortening the absorption pathway. The first part of the small intestine is bypassed and the second part is connected to the small pouch formed in the stomach. The ingested food now passes into this new pouch and then into the second part of the small intestine. After surgery, a large portion of the stomach and a part of the small intestine are removed from the digestive tract. Thanks to the small stomach, the patient consumes less food and the body absorbs fewer calories as a part of the small intestine is bypassed.
The procedure usually takes 2 to 4 hours.

What happens after Gastric Bypass Surgery?

Recovery after gastric bypass surgery in Iran depends on the size of the incision made. If the surgery was performed laparoscopically, the person should stay in the hospital for 2 to 3 days. If the surgery was performed openly, the hospital stay may take longer. The pain from the incision in the days after surgery is easily controlled with painkillers. Prior to discharge from the hospital, instructions for gastric bypass surgery in Iran are given along with the necessary medication.
To prevent the risk of dehydration, the patient should consume enough water daily, but water intake should be in small sips to prevent air swallowing and stomach damage. For 6 to 7 weeks, you should avoid lifting objects heavier than 15 pounds and avoid pushing yourself when climbing stairs or any other physical activity.
You will not be allowed to eat for one to two days after surgery so your stomach and digestive system can heal. Then you should follow a special diet for 12 weeks. Drinks and liquid foods are first consumed, followed by soft foods and finally regular food. You may have restrictions on certain foods and drinks. Throughout the first few months following surgery, you may also need repeated doctors’ appointments for health checks. As your body reacts quickly to weight loss, you may see changes in the first trimester up to six months after surgery. A few of these changes are as follows:
  1. Pain in the body
  2. Feeling exhausted
  3. Feeling cold
  4. Dry skin
  5. Hair thinning and hair loss
  6. Mood swings
Vomiting after meals is common, as your stomach can now only hold a much smaller amount of food. To prevent vomiting after meals, you should:
Eat small meals several times a day;
Avoid combining liquids and solids during the same meal.

You can resume walking fairly quickly after the operation, but you should wait 6 weeks before resuming physical activity. Check with your doctor about the correct schedule for you, and ask them which exercises will be best for you.

By reducing the size of your stomach, you will feel fuller faster. By bypassing part of the small intestine, fewer calories will be absorbed into the body. These two factors are involved in weight loss. Weight loss is fastest in the weeks following the operation, when you are limited to a liquid diet. Then the weight loss continues steadily until your weight stabilizes, usually after two years. When you reach your healthy weight, it will be difficult to maintain it. Your doctor might suggest participating in weight maintenance programs.

Diet instructions after Gastric Bypass surgery in Iran

After gastric bypass surgery in Iran, you may have restrictions on the type and amount of food and drink you consume. This is because the stomach is much smaller after surgery and is healing. Large meals, high-fiber foods, and fizzy drinks can damage stomach tissue. Immediately after surgery until the stomach and intestines heal, it is best to drink only fluids. Then slowly change your diet from liquids to pureed foods. After that, you can gradually use soft foods and, if your stomach is ready, hard foods.

After gastric bypass surgery, when you experience rapid weight loss, you need to make sure you get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals so that you do not suffer from nutritional deficiencies and related complications. So, the patient needs to take the supplement for the rest of his life. These supplements usually include the following:

Multivitamin with iron
Vitamin B12
Vitamin D3
Calcium (1,200 mg per day) and vitamin D. The body can only absorb 500 mg of calcium per serving. For this reason, take your daily calcium in 2 or 3 doses. Calcium should be taken in the form of calcium citrate.
Protein is the most important substance needed in the first days after gastric bypass surgery. The body needs protein to heal, build muscle, and other tissues after surgery. Low-fat proteins include:

Chicken without skin
Beef or pork
Egg whites or whole eggs
Dairy products include low-fat or non-fat cheese, milk, and yogurt
The patient should be checked regularly with his or her doctor after undergoing gastric bypass surgery in Iran to ensure proper weight loss and nutrition. These appointments, which can also be online, are a good opportunity to talk to your doctor about problems with your diet, surgery, or gastric bypass recovery. You may also need to have regular blood tests to monitor your health

Do not forget fresh fruits and vegetables

What are the risks of Gastric Bypass surgery?

Like other major surgeries, gastric bypass surgery can have serious health risks. These risks may be short-term or long-term.

Excessive bleeding
Adverse reactions to anesthetics
Blood clots
Lung and respiratory problems
Leakage in the gastrointestinal tract
Dumping syndrome, diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting
Intestinal hernia
Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
Perforation of the stomach
Death (very rare)

n rare cases, gastric bypass surgery can be fatal. Compared to gastric sleeve surgery, there is more weight loss, but because gastric bypass surgery is usually associated with long-term postoperative metabolic problems, patients need more vitamin supplements, which can lead to problems such as chronic diarrhea, bad breath, and so on.

It is quite clear that if this weight loss surgery is performed by professional and experienced surgeons, the risks of the surgery will be greatly reduced. Iranian plastic surgeons have a very low risk of surgery because they have a very high experience and have many clients from different countries. For this reason, it is recommended that you perform gastric bypass surgery in Iran.

What are the expected results of gastric bypass surgery in Iran?

Gastric bypass surgery can lead to long-term weight loss. The amount of weight loss you can expect varies depending on your lifestyle. In general, depending on the preoperative weight, patients can expect to lose between 40 and 70% of their excess body weight by two years after surgery.

In addition to the effect of this operation on weight loss, it can also solve the problems caused by obesity, such as:

Gastric acid reflux into the esophagus

  1. Heart disease
  2. Hypertension
  3. High blood cholesterol
  4. Obstructive sleep apnea
  5. Type 2 diabetes
  6. Stroke
  7. Infertility

Gastric bypass surgery in Iran can also improve your quality of life and your ability to perform daily activities.

Some patients may not lose enough weight after gastric bypass or regain the lost weight after a while.

This weight gain can be the result of not changing your lifestyle and not following the surgeon’s instructions after the operation. For example, if you eat high-calorie foods often; You should not expect the desired weight loss.

Therefore, to prevent the return of lost weight, you need to make significant changes in your diet and physical activity after surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions About GASTRIC BYPASS SURGERY

The smaller stomach pouch restricts food intake, and bypassing part of the small intestine reduces calorie and nutrient absorption from food. By suppressing appetite and reducing nutrient absorption, this leads to weight loss.

It is typically done laparoscopically. The surgeon staples the stomach to create a small pouch, then divides the small intestine and connects the upper portion directly to the new pocket. The lower intestine is reattached further down.

Hospital stay is 2-3 days. Diet slowly progresses from clear liquids to puréed foods over 6-8 weeks as the new pouch heals. Vitamin supplementation is vital lifelong post-op.

Risks include infection, blood clots, leaking from the staple line, malnutrition, excess skin, vomiting, diarrhea, and surgical revision. The mortality risk is low at under 1%.

Most patients lose 60-80% of excess body weight in the first year. Average BMI drops from 45-50 before surgery to 30-35 after surgery. Weight loss plateaus after 18-24 months.

With lifestyle adherence, most maintain 50% of total weight lost for over 10 years. Some regain may occur after 2 years, but weight usually does not return to pre-surgery levels.

Many insurances cover gastric bypass for those meeting obesity criteria. Out-of-pocket costs range from $15,000-$25,000 in the US for those without coverage.
