Gastric Sleeve Surgery is one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures today. It is also known as Laparoscopic Sleeve Surgery. Gastric Sleeve Surgery is performed directly on the stomach. During the surgery, the stomach is turned into a tube that looks like a banana. It is a laparoscopic surgery that is performed as a closed surgery.
The stomach is reached through a small incision in the abdominal wall. With the laparoscopy method, 80% of the stomach is cut and removed. The remaining part is sutured in a tube-like manner.
Thanks to this Gastric Sleeve Surgery, in which the stomach volume is seriously reduced, people’s food consumption is restricted. With the reduced eating habits, the amount of calories taken daily decreases, and people start to lose weight in this way.
Gastric Sleeve Surgery can also reduce food absorption at a very low rate. This situation ensures that the consumed foods are not fully absorbed. Thus, people take fewer calories from the foods they consume and can lose weight.
Turkey Gastric Sleeve is considered a lower-risk surgery than other bariatric surgery methods. Continuity in the digestive system is ensured in the same way, depending on the protection of the inlet and outlet parts of the stomach. With this surgery, which only reduces the volume of the stomach, people begin to lose weight by consuming only less food.
Gastric Sleeve Surgery Turkey is an operation performed under general anesthesia and completed within one and a half hours.

In Gastric Sleeve, while the process mentioned above about turning the stomach into a banana shape is applied, a more comprehensive operation is performed in the Gastric Bypass method, which is another type of Gastric Sleeve in Turkey. In gastric bypass, in addition to stomach reduction, digestive interventions are also performed.

However, the Gastric Sleeve Surgery method comes to the fore to perform a more risk-free operation in people with a body mass index of 30-35 and those with insulin resistance. Since Gastric Sleeve does not cause a serious lack of nutrient absorption compared to gastric bypass, it does not cause problems such as dumping syndrome. The process of adapting to the post-operative period is more effortless.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery is a type of surgery that requires hospitalization. To prevent the risk of side effects and complications, the patient is kept under observation in the hospital for 5 or 7 days after the operation. Then, patients are discharged and sent off to their homes.
The weight lost with Gastric Sleeve surgery varies from person to person. Excess weight, age, chronic diseases, post-operative eating habits, and exercise affect weight loss. People who have undergone Gastric Sleeve Surgery in Turkey usually lose 60% of their excess weight within three years after surgery.

In order to achieve the desired weight, the person should act voluntarily about diet and not give up after losing weight. Otherwise, people may gain weight again after two years after the surgery. In such cases, revision surgeries may be needed.
Revision surgeries are also applied in case of complications such as stenosis or leakage in the stomach due to Gastric Sleeve Surgery. However, revision surgery is usually performed due to weight gain. In revision surgeries, Gastric Sleeve can be repeated, or a different obesity surgery can be directed.
