Currently, there are 5 types of obesity surgery that are generally applied in the world. To summarize briefly how these procedures will affect patients;
Gastric Sleeve Surgery - Feels less hungry and more satiated with less food.
Gastric Bypass - Food feels more full and less mineral is absorbed when eaten.
Duedonal Switch - Feels less hungry, more full with less food, and fewer calories and minerals are digested.
Gastric Band - Food feels more full when eaten.
Gastric Balloon - It feels more full when eating, but the balloon has to be removed after 6 months.
Patients generally begin to lose weight fast after all these procedures. However, semi-surgical methods such as gastric band and gastric balloon cause an average of 20% less weight loss at the end of the 6th month compared to other surgeries, and weight gain is more common after weight loss. Gastric bypass surgery and gastric sleeve surgery provide improvement in many chronic diseases such as diabetes and blood pressure as well as obesity. In order for these surgeries to be performed, the patient must have tried and failed most diet and exercise methods under the control of a dietician. The final decision in obesity surgeries should be made with the patient after a detailed examination of the doctor/surgeon.
