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. Since the discovery of the sleeve gastrectomy method, various stomach reduction surgeries have been performed. However, the Gastric Sleeve technique has been applied for the last 15 years, and the risk of gastric reduction surgery has been minimized.

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.

Gastric Bypass Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery is generally preferred in exceptional cases and for individuals with type 2 diabetes. Gastric bypass can also be applied in patients with a very high body mass index, in cases where it is not desired to waste time.

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 Turkey draws attention to the fact that it is performed on people between 18-65. Due to its appeal to many applications, Gastric Sleeve surgery is applied to thousands of people yearly. The World Health Organization emphasizes that individuals with a body mass index over 35 kg/m2 are suitable for Gastric Sleeve surgery.

In some exceptional cases, Turkey Gastric Sleeve Surgery can be applied to people under the age of 18 and over 65.

If the patient is deemed appropriate, the necessary examinations and planning for the operation process are started.

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.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery can be made permanent by adopting a healthy life and regular exercise. 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.

This situation is shaped depending on the patient’s expectations and wishes. Revision surgery can be avoided with a successful sleeve gastrectomy and full control of the post-operative process.

Losing weight is a long process that requires high motivation, sticking to a diet for a long time, and adding exercise to daily life. Adhering to a diet for a long time can be challenging for overweight individuals. In particular, it is difficult for people with enlarged stomach volumes to control their appetite. This situation brings failure many times in the diet process.

People are reluctant to lose weight and tend to gain more weight. Gastric Sleeve Turkey provides a serious solution to the feeling of uncontrollable hunger. With the reduction of stomach volume, people cannot eat as much as they want for a particular time.

The shrinking stomach volume prevents the consumption of large amounts of food, and thus the feeling of hunger decreases.

It takes approximately 4-6 weeks for the wounds developed due to sleeve gastrectomy to be closed and for total healing. One week after the surgery, people can start driving. After two weeks, patients can return to their daily lives. The recovery process after the surgery is closely related to the diet.

Patients should be extremely careful about nutrition during the recovery period after Gastric Sleeve Surgery. After the operation, a process is followed within a certain period in such a way as to return to first liquid, then semi-solid semi-liquid, and then to daily nutrition ultimately. It is extremely important from which foods the nutrients are taken during this period.

Those who want an effective result from sleeve gastrectomy surgery should make healthy eating a part of their life. Usually, the post-surgery process is provided by a dietitian follow-up. After Gastric Surgery, endocrinologists, general surgeons, and dietitians perform a multidisciplinary study.

In this way, it aims to feed the patient correctly and reach the ideal weight. At first, general principles come to the fore. Diet planning is done in a way that is specific to the patient. The headings to be considered in general are listed as follows:

  •       Consuming about 60 grams of protein per day
  •       Not skipping meals
  •       Eating as 3 main meals and 2 snacks
  •       Not eating in front of the TV
  •       Consuming small portions
  •       Using small plates and small fork
  •       Eating slowly and chewing a lot
  •       Stopping fluid intake half an hour before meals
  •       Using recommended vitamin and mineral supplements

After Gastric Sleeve Surgery, the patient is recommended to exercise. With regular sports performed under the supervision of a specialist, the Gastric Sleeve Surgery success rate in Turkey is increased, and the healing process is accelerated. A personalized exercise program should be created, and movements should be determined.

Initially, the patient should start doing sports without forcing himself while doing the exercises. It aims to achieve a healthier quality of life by adopting a healthy lifestyle and making exercise a habit.

After Gastric Sleeve Surgery, there is a severe decrease in food intake. Due to the reduction of stomach volume, people consume less food. This situation can cause vitamin and mineral deficiencies. The doctor follows the vitamin and mineral values of the people regularly. Vitamins and minerals deemed appropriate by the doctor should be used without interruption. In this way, vitamin and mineral deficiencies should be prevented.

The post-surgery process can be successfully overcome by paying attention to proper nutrition, sports, and taking vitamins. Also, patients should consume mineral supplements during the Gastric Sleeve Surgery recovery time.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery is a type of surgery that can have side effects. The possibility of developing side effects after surgery is lower than in other bariatric surgery methods. The side effects that may develop due to the surgery should be brought under control in a short time, and the healing process should be ensured to continue positively. Side effects may develop due to surgical interventions and during the recovery period after surgery.

Digestive problems can be observed as a side effect due to intervention in the stomach structure after the surgery. People may have difficulties with intolerance to certain foods. In addition to the intolerance problem, loss of appetite can bring the following symptoms.

  •       Nauseating
  •       Diarrhea
  •       Inadequate Nutrition
  •       Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)

  •       Acceleration in heartbeat
  •       Feeling pain in the stomach
  •       High cholesterol
  •       Acceleration in breathing and exhalation
  •       High body temperature

Patients should see a doctor if the side effects mentioned above are observed. In case of leakage in the stomach, a second surgical intervention may be needed to correct this problem. In this case, revision surgery must be performed.

It may be necessary to start antibiotic-containing drug treatments to prevent an infection that may develop due to food leakage. In such cases, the doctor follows the patient closely throughout the entire process. After the side effects pass, the patient is discharged from the clinic.

However, such chances are meager if the procedures are performed by a physician specializing in bariatric surgery.

Gastric sleeve surgery has the lowest risk of death among all bariatric surgery methods. Although it is a major surgical operation, the risk of death is at the same level as a gallbladder operation. Since sleeve gastrectomy is a closed operation, it has a lower risk of post-operative complications.

Surgery with a small incision reduces the risk of infection in the suture area. It also shortens the recovery time. The rate of encountering troubles after surgery also varies according to the age and weight of the patient. The higher the patient’s weight and age, the higher the risk of surgery.
