Gastric Surgeries

Gastric surgeries are weight loss surgeries that have many different types and function in different ways to achieve the desired results for patients.

Types of Weight Loss Surgeries

Cosmetic surgeries can be performed on different parts of the body that patients are not comfortable with. The results of these surgeries are usually permanent and depend on the skill and experience of the doctor.Cosmetic surgeries in Turkey include the following:

1- Gastric Balloon

This operation includes inserting a silicon saline-filled balloon into a patient’s stomach which limits the quantities of food consumed by the patient and eventually leads to weight loss.

It is an endoscopy procedure where the patient is sedated first, the doctor inserts the balloon to the stomach using a catheter, then he or she will fill it with saline using an endoscope with a camera that allows them to see the balloon during the process.

The balloon stays in place for six months and then it is either replaced or removed depending on the plan decided by both doctor and patient

2- Gastric Sleeve

This operation is more invasive than the gastric balloon, as it includes removing three-quarters of the stomach using special medical tools. This operation is permanent and suitable for patients who have at least 40 BMI.

Patients are required to stay in the hospital for three nights after the surgery. Patients are to change their eating habits and diet after the procedure, usually, the operating surgeon will refer the patient to a dietitian to create a special program.

3- Gastric Bypass

This surgery is also a weight loss surgery that entails creating a pouch in the stomach and directly connecting it to the small intestine.

The swallowed food will bypass the stomach and the first part of the small intestine this process leads to suppressing hunger enzymes leading to weight loss.

Patients who go through this treatment usually lose 50% of their weight rapidly and feel healthier in a short time. Patients who undergo this surgery are those who failed to lose weight after trying non-surgical solutions.

4- Gastric Band

This procedure constricts the stomach which leads to feeling full after eating small proportions of food which leads to weight loss.

This treatment is reversible and less invasive than gastric sleeve operations. The surgeon will insert a silicone inflatable band around the top of the stomach which can be removed later on.

This procedure requires using general anesthesia and the recovery includes a liquid diet at first and gradually adding solid foods to it afterward.

Weight loss surgeries help patients control their illnesses especially diabetes and obesity. Patients should consult their doctors to choose the best procedure that suits their medical history and their expectations. If patients choose to have gastric surgeries abroad, they have to clear their schedule and plan the treatment with their medical advisors to have the time to relax and heal before going back to their ordinary lives.

Patients who come to Istanbul to have gastric surgery have to stay in Istanbul for 7 to 10 days, medical advisors make the treatment plan clear before the surgery.

Patients who go under this procedure start losing weight rapidly during the first three months after the operation. The weight loss starts to slow down in the coming months.

It depends on the type of your exercise as well as the type of your surgery you went under. It is important to follow the instructions of your surgeon on this matter.

Patients who go through gastric operations have to follow some instructions regarding their diet through the first couple of weeks after their surgeries.

Women who go under weight-loss surgeries can get pregnant after 12 to 18 months after they have a stable weight. It is safer though to discuss the issue with your doctor.

Liposuction operations are not similar to weight-loss operations, in liposuction only the excess fat is removed and patients are required to maintain exercise and diet after the procedure.
