During my time in the hospital Dr.Hassan and his team made me feel as if I was at home, they were always on top of me, asking how I was feeling and generally very helpful throughout. Whilst back in my country the team would also write to me on a weekly basis to see how I was progressing, 4 months down the line and they still do. This has been the best decision I have made and would highly recommend anyone who is thinking about doing any procedure to go ahead.

It was my first surgery ! I was up and walking 4-5 hours after my surgery. It was all good! The team is wonderful, always checking on you to make sure you’re ok, always welcoming questions, hospital was great, as someone from Australia Were used to having nurses running around doing everything for us like showering, bathroom needs, dressing etc, here in Turkey you would need to have someone with you especially if you’re struggling. I had my aunt stay with me but I was still able to go to the bathroom and get up with her help. So maybe that will be something to think about so you don’t feel lonely,.

Obesity is the accumulation of excess and abnormal fat that is detrimental to your health as the amount of calories you ingest is higher than your calorie intake. Obesity, which is known as fatness among the people, which decreases the quality of life significantly and shortens the life span, is a growing health problem of our age. 1.6 billion people in the world are overweight and 400 million of them are obese. According to the researchs, one in four men in Turkey (25%) and almost half of women (44%) is seen obesity. In addition to being widespread, it continues to be an important public health problem as it increases and causes many diseases. In other words, obesity is not a common aesthetic problem, on the contrary it is an important disease that can cause high blood pressure, heart failure, fatal vascular diseases and psychological problems if it left untreated.

Other diseases that obesity can cause:

Type 2 diabetes

Hypertension, Coronary artery disease, Heart failure

Respiratory disorders

Metabolic syndrome, Insulin resistance, Cholesterol and lipid elevation

Sleep apnea, Sleep disorders

osteoarthritis

Arrival

Stroke and stroke

Gall stone

Some cancers such as breast, large intestine and prostate cancer (obesity operations are reported to reduce deaths due to various cancers in the long term)

WHO IS ASSESSED AS OBESE?

The Body Mass Index (KMI) is the most commonly used measurement method for determining obesity and is recommended by the WHO (World Health Organization). The BMI is calculated by dividing the body weight in kilograms by the square of the height in square meters.

Body mass index valueclassification  Below 18.5 kg / m² Weak18.5 – 24.9 kg / m² Normal weight25 to 29.9 kg / m² OverweightWeight of 30 to 39.9 kg / m²ObeseBetween 40 – 50 kg / m² Morbid obeseBetween 50 – 60 kg / m² Super ObeseOver 60 kg / m² Super super obese
 

Obesity surgery

Morbid obesity is a deadly disease that needs to be treated. The mean life expectancy of patients with pathological obesity surgery is increased by 15 years. Who is suitable for obesity surgery?

Diet: Patients who are scheduled for surgical treatment should not have hormonal problems. They are patients who cannot lose or regain weight with diet, exercise and medication. These patients should have had obesity for at least 3 years, and should have failed twice within at least 6 months despite nutritional exercise and psychological support. Although these patients have a 2-4% chance of losing weight through diet and exercise, they must be tried first.

 

Age: The patient should be between 18-65 years old. This age restriction may include exceptions to patient performance and other illnesses.

Body Mass Index: The body mass index should be over 40 or between 35 and 40 and have no other diseases (high blood pressure, diabetes, sleep apnea, joint diseases, reflux diseases, etc.). The World Health Organization recommends that the surgery be the most effective treatment for obesity and comorbidities in patients with multiple conditions and a BMI> 35 kg / m2 or in patients with a BMI> 40 kg / m2, even if there is no adverse event. The American Diabetes Association and the International Diabetes Federation report that obesity surgery is better than any other treatment for type 2 patients who have uncontrolled blood sugar levels and a body mass index higher than 35 kg / m2.

Addiction and psychiatric disorder: The patient who can undergo obesity surgery should not have alcohol or drug addiction, and the person’s psychology should be able to accept the risks of the surgery and the post-surgery process.

Pregnancy and childbirth: It is recommended not to become pregnant 24 months after an obesity surgery.

I do not have any words for your doctors. It is an institution that has remained in the class in only two respects. 1) Parking fee "disgrace" What is the parking fee in the hospital? 2) You are making an appointment but when you go you are kept waiting for at least 20 minutes for each section. As if you are a goztepe ssk 😀 organization and administration / administrative work sucks !!! But the doctors are very good at it if I am already out of them.

What you need to know about Gastric Sleeve in Turkey

Gastric Sleeve Surgery is a weight loss procedure in which a large part of the stomach is surgically removed, reducing the stomach size by up to 85%, with the remaining portion of the stomach looking like a banana or a sleeve. Given the severely reduced stomach size, patients are unable to consume and digest as much food before quashing their hunger and feeling full - as a result, rapid weight loss can be achieved. This type of surgery is non-reversible and should only be considered as a final option. 

A person is termed obese if their body mass index (BMI) is greater than 40 and their weight is 100 lbs / 50 kg more than their ideal weight. For these people, Bariatric Surgery is an available option. There are many associated risks concerned with Obesity that can lead to hypertension, infertility, diabetes, sleep apnea, and much more. When methods, such as dieting and exercising do not work, a Gastric Sleeve procedure can be the final solution, but not everyone is a good candidate and each individual should carefully consider the best options available to them, considering present condition, health history, cost, recovery time, success rate and pros and cons of the surgery. Alternatively, a Gastric Balloon may be preferred instead - see below for more information on this non-invasive procedure.

MyMediTravel currently lists 8 facilities in Turkey offering Gastric Sleeve procedures - see above for the complete list, along with estimated prices. The price of a Gastric Sleeve is usually standardized across all patients but a pre-assessment by the surgeon will confirm the price prior to traveling.

What Does The Procedure Involve?

Surgery is performed under general anesthesia using a laparoscope, with several small incisions being made on the belly, a tube fitted with a camera (laparoscope) is then inserted through these incisions to give a clear picture of the insides. The surgeon will view these images, before beginning the process of surgically removing up to 85% of the stomach's volume using special surgical instruments. The remaining stomach pouch now resembles a dramatically reduced sleeve or banana. All the instruments are removed and the incisions are stitched and bandages applied to the wounds. 

How Long Should I Stay in Turkey?

Gastric sleeve surgery is an inpatient procedure that lasts about one hour in the operation theatre. After this, you are moved to a recovery room where your vitals are monitored. A two to three days hospital stay is required after surgery and you are discharged when your condition is stable. You should stay in Turkey for at least 7-8 days for follow up check-ups. During this period, you are kept under review and the stitches are removed after 5 to 7 days. 

What's the Recovery Time?

It will take two to three months to get back to normal meals and the amount of food you will eat is considerably decreased. You will likely suffer from a swollen and sore stomach for several days, with medicines being prescribed to help deal with the pain during this period. After two to four weeks, you can return to some normal activities, however, on average, six weeks of rest is required. As it is laparoscopic surgery, less time is required to recover and scars are small which fade away over time. 

What About Aftercare?

The following are some points to consider after leaving the hospital:

  • Intake only liquids for the first two to three days. After this, you can start taking pureed food and shakes. You will have to continue with this for at least 4 weeks. After which you can start eating solid food items. Do not eat very heavy food items. Avoid drinking water with food, as it fills your small stomach immediately. 
  • Follow a proper diet plan as you will have to fulfill your nutritional requirements with a smaller amount of food.
  • Take multivitamins and minerals daily. Especially vitamin B12, as pernicious anemia needs to be prevented.
  • Do not climb up the stairs, also, do not bend. Avoid those activities which can put stress on your abdomen. 
  • Change your bandage regularly and do not let it get wet as this can cause infection. 
  • Ensure you have regular check-ups and your weight loss is recorded during these visits.
  • Take your painkillers regularly to relieve yourself from the post-surgery pain.

What's the Success Rate Like?

You can expect to lose 60% of your excess weight within 12 to 18 months post-surgery. The Gastric Sleeve is now the most popular form of Bariatric Surgery based on the extremely high success rates seen across the world. Patients can expect a huge decrease in weight, coupled with a vast improvement in health conditions and a reduction in such diseases as diabetes.

Are there Alternative Bariatric Procedures Available?

The following are some non-surgical or minimally invasive alternatives to gastric sleeve surgery:

  • Weight losing drugs: with this method, some drugs are prescribed which can help with the weight loss process. You can lose 5% to 10% of your excess weight in one year through this and it is known as pharmacotherapy. 
  • VBLOC therapy: with this therapy, a pacemaker device is implanted into the skin of your abdominal wall. The device is connected to electrodes that are placed at the trunk of the vagus nerve through small incisions. Vagus nerve signals can be periodically blocked to reduce your eating desire and it is a minimally invasive procedure.

Are there Other Alternative Bariatric Procedures?

1. Gastric Band - Considered a reversible Bariatric Surgery option, a silicone device is fitted at the top portion of the stomach, cutting off the bottom section and creating a small stomach pouch above. The reduced stomach size now means the volume of food consumed is much smaller before the patient becomes full, thus resulting in rapid weight loss. Once the desired weight is achieved, the band can be surgically removed.

2. Gastric Bypass - The stomach is divided into two parts; a small upper pouch and a large lower ‘remnant’ pouch. The small intestine is rearranged accordingly, bypassing the large pouch and thus significantly reducing the volume of the stomach.

3. Gastric Balloon - This non-invasive procedure does not involve surgery and instead an inflatable balloon-like device is endoscopically placed into the stomach and inflated, thus reducing the capacity of the stomach. with the balloon occupying most of the stomachs volume, the patient becomes full much quicker, leading to rapid weight loss. Once the desired weight is achieved, the balloon is deflated and removed.
