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.

What you need to know about Gastric Sleeve Istanbul

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.

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'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.
