Gastric Sleeve Surgery in Turkey
Affordable Gastric Sleeve Surgery in Turkey
Aside from dentistry and cosmetic surgery, Turkey is known for providing one of the best bariatric surgeries to international patients!
In bariatric surgery, weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach to a size of a banana (sleeve gastrectomy), through a gastric band or by removing a part of the stomach (biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch.) Re-routing or resecting the small intestine to a smaller stomach pouch (gastric bypass surgery) may also be performed.
Bariatric surgery is an option for adults with severe obesity or patients who have a high body mass index (BMI) of over 40 with comorbidities or serious health problems linked to obesity such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and sleep apnea among others.
3 Main Categories of Bariatric Surgery:
Predominantly Malabsorptive – involves rearranging and/or partially removing a patient’s digestive system.
Predominantly Restrictive – involves reducing oral intake by limiting one’s gastric volume which then produces early satiety
Mixed – involves both restrictive and malabasorptive simultaneously
If you follow diet and exercise recommendations, you can keep most of the weight off. You will also need medical follow-up for the rest of your life.
Why do you need Obesity Surgery?
Obesity surgery becomes an option for severely obese patients who cannot keep or lose the weight off by diet and exercise alone. Further, because of serious health concerns linked with obesity such as type 2 diabetes or sleep apnea, they have to undergo the surgery to reduce weight, and improve their overall health.
