Background: Only bariatric surgery has been demonstrated to produce sustained weight loss and alleviation of obesity-related health complications. Named laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and Mini Gastric Bypass. Objectives: to assess the effects of the two surgical procedure of bariatric surgery, MGB & sleeve gastrectomy, on total cholesterol (HDL-LDL) and TG, and to compare the findings among the two groups. Patients and Methods: This research was performed on twenty four morbidly obese individuals with dyslipidemia. This includes twelve cases that underwent MGB Group one and twelve cases Group two underwent sleeve gastrectomy ,The anthropometric data and lipid profile of patients were evaluated preoperatively and six months postoperatively. Results: Preoperative baseline anthropometric, lipid profile measurements revealed no difference among the two groups statistically, There was no statistical difference among the two groups in total cholesterol and HDL levels but there was statistical difference among the two groups in LDL and TG levels, Six months after surgery, anthropometric measurements showed no statistical variation .There was no statistical variance in total cholesterol and HDL levels among the two groups six months after surgery, but there was a considerable statistical variance in LDL and triglyceride levels. Conclusion: both laparoscopic procedures, LSG and MGB, are equally successful in producing substantial weight reduction and improvement the medical complications linked to obesity.Even so, LMGB may be the better choice for people with dyslipidemia. Total cholesterol LDL cholesterol, and triglyceride reductions are comparable to LSG, whereas HDL rise is more pronounced in LMGB.
