  • Your body mass index (BMI) is 40 or higher
  • Your BMI is 35 or more and you have a serious weight-related health problem, such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure or severe sleep apnea.


A team of health professionals including a doctor, dietitian, psychologist, and surgeon will check your medical and family history to evaluate whether gastric bypass or mini gastric bypass in Dubai is appropriate for you.

  • Patients nutrition and weight history
  • if he/she knows the possible risks and benefits of weight loss surgery.
  • If he/she is ready to adjust their eating regime after the surgery.
  • if he/she is committed to maintaining lifestyle changes to maintain a healthy weight.

Your surgeon performs the operation by leaving only very small part of your stomach called the pouch. The pouch is very small and it can’t hold a large amount of food, so you have no other option but eat less.
