FAQs

What is Obesity Surgery?

Surgical operations that provide permanent weight loss, for those who are unable to lose weight by other weight loss methods (Diet, sports, etc.). With the advancement of technology and the development of new methods, the success rates of today’s obesity surgeries are quite high. Compared to the old obesity surgeries, the complications after the surgery have decreased to a great extent and the healing period has shortened. 

What is Obesity Surgery Treatment Methods?

1. Stomach Balloon

Stomach balloon is one of the methods used in obesity treatment. The extınguished balloon is inserted into the patient’s stomach with gastroscopy and then inflated physically. The amount of serum can be increased or decreased according to the needs of the patient. The placed balloon can move freely in the stomach.

But stomach balloon therapy is not permanent. According to the patient’s need, it can stay for 6-12 months and then removed from the stomach. Because the balloon gives a feeling of satiety and is filling the stomach, the patient cannot eat much.

In this process, with a dietitian and the help of a healthy and balanced diet, the patient will lose weight. The eating habits of the patient are corrected until the balloon is removed and after the balloon is removed, the patient continues to lose weight if he continues to have a healthy and balanced diet.

2. Tube Stomach (Sleeve Gastrectomy)

The greatest advantage of sleeve gastrectomy is that no changes are made to the natural functioning of the digestive system. Obesity-related diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, sleep apnea are reduced by up to 80% with tube stomach cure.

Tube stomach treatment does not change stomach functions, only stomach volume shrinks so that patients can consume any type of food, at least in small quantities.

With this treatment, 75% of the stomach is removed. Therefore a hormone named ghrelin, which triggers the feeling of hunger is noticeably reduced and The feel of hunger of the patient is reduced naturally.

Vitamin and mineral deficiency after tubal stomach surgery is much less than other obesity operations. 

3. Mini Gastric Bypass

Mini gastric bypass surgery reduces both gastric volume and the absorption of food. The mini-gastric bypass is very effective in the treatment of hypertension and diabetes.

4. R-Y Gastric Bypass

The difference between R-Y gastric bypass and mini-gastric by-pass is a bile deflector linkage that prevents bile reflux. As the stomach is shrunk, the number of nutrients taken and bypasses reduces the absorption of nutrients. Thus, the patient can lose weight quickly after surgery.

5. Transit Bipartition

Transit bipartition surgery is a metabolic surgical procedure. Metabolic surgery type surgery is applied to people with diseases such as diabetes, obesity, high cholesterol, and hypertension. 

How safe is Turkey to have a sleeve gastrectomy surgery?

Turkey has made itself a name in recent years by providing uncompromising quality of European standards with the technological developments in the field of health. The patient-oriented approach and the latest surgical instruments, experienced staff and health personnel is in the service of our patients from the first step in Istanbul to the moment of their return. 

When would I reach my targeted weight after the surgery?

Our clinical experience has indicated that; our patients lose 10-15 kg. in the first month, 25 kg. in the third month, and 35-40 kg. in the 6th month. This may vary according to the patient's weight. Compliance with the diet and exercises given at this stage also determines how much and how long the weight would be lost. 

How is the recovery period after bariatric surgery?

After 6 hours of the surgery the patient can start walking with support in the hospital corridor. Walking could be achieved without any help on the following day. At the end of the 2nd day, patient could see their needs themselves.

After the patient is discharged, travelling by plane or a 4-5 hours car journey permitted. Having a companion during travel and daily 30-60 minutes of walk at a light pace is recommended.

Can I get rid of problems such as sleep apnea after bariatric surgery?

Obesity is an important risk factor for the development of sleep apnea. The higher the body mass index, the higher is the risk. As body weight increases, the tissue mass around the neck also increases. This leads to a narrowing of the diameter of the trachea and an increase in tension in the muscles around the trachea. In the vast majority of patients who lose weight rapidly after bariatric surgery, these problems decrease significantly and disappear completely after surgery. 

Is there any chance of the stomach expanding after sleeve gastrectomy surgery?

The stomach has the ability to stretch and grow due to its structure. Over time, frequent and excessive eating habits cause the stomach to grow and people to gain excess weight. During gastric reduction surgery, a large part of the stomach and the part where the hormones that cause hunger are produced would be removed. Therefore, after the operation, extreme hunger is not felt, and since the stomach shrinks, a small amount of food would be sufficient enough.The feeling of nibbling is not much felt in the first few years. When the recovery is fully completed patients then could fill the stomach completely. Consuming food after reaching satiety, would result an expansion in the stomach.However, despite all this, the stomach will not completely return to its former state. 

Is there an age limit for sleeve gastrectomy surgery?

There is no age limit for bariatric surgery as long as pre-operative evaluations are done well. For adults the age limit is 65 by some sources. However, with the prolongation of life expectancy and the change in the perception of an old age, the concept of age limit for the surgery has disappeared. Everyone who does not have any health problems preventing the surgery could have sleeve gastrectomy surgery

When could I conceive after sleeve gastrectomy surgery?

The right time to get pregnant after bariatric surgery should be determined as 1.5-2 years. The reason for this is that negative effects can be seen in the baby to be born due to the deficiency of vitamins such as B12 and folic acid. Patients who lose weight, fertility and hormone activity increase as the patient loses weight, increasing the chance of conception. 

Would there be hair loss after bariatric surgery?

Hair loss occurs in almost every patient after gastric sleeve surgery. The reason for this is; estrogen hormone decreases and testosterone hormone increases in the body. As a result, hair loss occurs. In addition, hair loss after this surgery may be due to mineral and vitamin deficiencies. To prevent this patients are given supplemental vitamins after surgery. After the first 6 months, new hair grows in place of the shed hair.  

Would I need a plastic surgery after sleeve gastrectomy surgery?

Loss of weight rapidly after the surgery, collagen could not fully regain its former state. Therefore sagging may ocur in different parts of the body. Aesthetic surgery procedures after 1st year could be an option. 

How long does bariatric surgery operations take?

Gastric sleeve (stomach reduction) surgery takes approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour,

Gastric Bypass surgeries would be approx. 1.30 to 2 hours,

Non-surgical slimming methods such as gastric balloon and stomach botox takes up to 30 minutes.
