Bariatric Surgery

Obesity is a life-threatening health problem that is increasingly common around the world, called the “disease of the age”. Bariatric surgery offers an effective treatment option when diet and exercise are insufficient, especially when weight-related health problems pose a serious threat.

Bariatric surgery is an effective and permanent treatment alternative, especially if there are significant health problems that developed due to obesity, such as Type 2 diabetes or sleep apnea.

Obesity patients should know that many obesity-related risk factors can be reduced if they put a healthy diet in the center of their lives and steadily improve their lifestyles after bariatric surgeries.

Bariatric Surgery

What Is Barıatric Surgery

Bariatric surgery in Turkey is a treatment method that includes surgical procedures aimed at weight loss in overweight or obese individuals. These surgical procedures are used to alleviate or manage the effects of obesity and are often referred to as bariatric surgery. Bariatric surgery is recommended for people with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher, or people with a BMI between 35-39.9 but experiencing serious health problems related to obesity. Turkey is known for its experienced surgeons and modern healthcare facilities that perform such surgical operations. It also offers all-inclusive package services specially designed for patients coming from abroad. There are many reasons to choose Turkey for bariatric surgery and these reasons can significantly improve patients’ health and quality of life. This makes Turkey a preferred destination for bariatric surgery.

Bariatric Surgery Treatment Methods In Turkey

Some main methods of bariatric surgery in Turkey are:

Gastric Bypass: Gastric Bypass is a type of bariatric surgery procedure used to treat obesity. This process involves separating part of the stomach and reconnecting it with the small intestine. This process supports weight loss by reducing nutrient absorption and reduces the patient’s obesity-related health problems. In Turkey, Gastric Bypass is performed by experienced surgeons.

Gastric bypass surgery may be an option for people who have serious obesity problems and have been unsuccessful with other weight loss methods. However, this procedure should be performed under the supervision of a medical professional and its suitability for each patient should be evaluated. Patient-doctor cooperation and communication is important in the pre- and postoperative period.

Gastric Balloon: Gastric balloon or intra-gastric balloon application is a non-surgical medical procedure used to promote weight loss. In this procedure, a balloon is inserted into the stomach endoscopically (using a tube that goes from the mouth to the stomach) and then inflated. The gastric balloon takes up space inside the stomach and this causes less food intake, so the feeling of fullness occurs faster. This aims to make the patient eat less and promote weight loss.

Gastric balloon application may be an option for people who have serious obesity problems but are not suitable for surgery or for people who do not want surgery. However, every patient is different, so the suitability and results of gastric balloon application should be evaluated on an individual basis by a doctor. Also, this procedure is only a tool used to aid weight loss and patients may need to maintain lifestyle changes.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery: During the Gastric Sleeve Surgery, the stomach is reshaped into a smaller tube and a major part of it is removed. Gastric Sleeve Surgery is performed to support weight loss and reduce obesity-related health problems. The stomach volume decreases and hunger control is achieved.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery may be an option for people who have obesity problems and have been unsuccessful with other weight loss methods. However, this is a serious step that requires changes and should be done under the supervision of a doctor. Every patient is different, so your suitability for surgery and whether surgery is a suitable option for you should be evaluated by a medical professional.

    I now adore my teeth. In only six days, they completed an extremely fantastic job. I'm glad they scheduled a control session even on the last day of the procedure so they could finish up with my teeth.
