Retouch Body Clinic

Mecidiyeköy Mahallesi Şehit Ahmet Sokak Ada Residance No:6-10/19, 34387 Şişli, Istanbul, Turkey

Treatment Procedure

Obesity Surgery, also known as metabolic surgery, is primarily aimed at eliminating metabolic diseases such as diabetes and fatty liver that are prevalent in obese individuals, rather than just weight loss. The process involves hormonal changes in the body, which can help combat these diseases even before significant weight loss. Popular methods include the tube stomach and gastric bypass. The decision to undergo obesity surgery is not merely aesthetic; it's meant to protect individuals from diseases caused by excess weight. Eligibility is determined by the body mass index (BMI) and other criteria, such as failure in previous weight loss attempts. Surgeries can be safely performed from ages 14 to 70, provided there are no significant health issues. While there are risks associated with these procedures, the danger is minimal, especially when considering the health risks faced by morbidly obese patients. Following the surgery, a multi-disciplinary approach involving diet, exercise, and behavioral changes is crucial to maintain the desired weight and health benefits.

What is Gastric Sleeve?

This surgery is performed under general anesthesia. During the operation, the surgeon opens 4-5 incisions in the patient's abdomen and enters through these incisions, the largest of which is 1.3 cm, with the help of special devices. Gastric sleeve surgery is performed laparoscopically and approximately 80% of the stomach is removed. The biggest advantage of this method is that there are no large incisions in the stomach and therefore, postoperative pain is less. Tube stomach surgery has a 99.7% survival rate. One of the conditions that should not be forgotten is how much weight the person loses before the operation and will lose more weight directly after the operation. Another purpose of this situation is not return to the old habits of the person and prevent weight gain. Gastric sleeve will prevent many obesity-related diseases in the future life of the patient.

What is Obesity Surgery?

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.
