Gastric Sleeve

Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Gastric sleeve surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that involves reducing the size of the stomach by removing a large portion of it. The remaining part of the stomach is reshaped into a sleeve-like structure, which can hold a significantly smaller amount of food. By reducing the stomach’s size, gastric sleeve surgery restricts the amount of food an individual can consume, leading to weight loss.

Gastric Sleeve Procedure

Gastric sleeve surgery involves placing the patient under general anesthesia. The surgeon uses a laparoscope to make small incisions in the abdomen and removes 75-80% of the stomach, creating a small, banana-shaped sleeve. The remaining portion is closed with staples or sutures. The procedure typically takes 1-2 hours

Benefits of Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Significant Weight Loss: Gastric sleeve operation has been proven to be highly effective in achieving significant weight loss. The smaller stomach size restricts the amount of food that can be consumed, leading to a reduced calorie intake. This, in turn, results in weight loss and improved body composition.

Improvement in Health Conditions: Obesity is often associated with various health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and joint problems. Gastric sleeve surgery has been shown to improve or even resolve these conditions, leading to a reduction in medication usage and an overall improvement in health.

Enhanced Quality of Life: Excess weight can have a significant impact on an individual’s quality of life. It can limit mobility, cause emotional distress, and reduce self-esteem. Gastric sleeve surgery can help individuals regain their mobility, improve their self-confidence, and enjoy a better quality of life.

Reduced Risk of Obesity-related Diseases: Obesity is a major risk factor for various diseases, including heart disease, stroke, certain types of cancer, and respiratory problems. By achieving and maintaining a healthy weight through gastric sleeve surgery, individuals can significantly reduce their risk of developing these diseases.

Long-term Weight Maintenance: Unlike many other weight loss methods, gastric sleeve surgery provides a long-term solution for weight maintenance. The surgery permanently reduces the size of the stomach, making it easier for individuals to control their portion sizes and adopt healthier eating habits.

Why Choose Gastric Sleeve Weight Loss Surgery?

There are several reasons why individuals choose gastric sleeve surgery as a method for weight loss. One of the main benefits is the significant and sustained weight loss that can be achieved. Studies have shown that individuals can lose up to 60% of their excess body weight within the first year after the surgery.

Another reason to consider gastric sleeve surgery is the improvement in various obesity-related health conditions. Obesity is associated with an increased risk of developing conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea. Gastric sleeve surgery has been shown to improve or even resolve these conditions, leading to better overall health and quality of life.

Additionally, gastric sleeve surgery offers a long-term solution for weight loss sleeve. Unlike fad diets or temporary lifestyle changes, the surgery alters the size of the stomach permanently, making it easier for individuals to maintain a healthy weight in the long run.

Will I Need To Follow a Special Diet After Gastric Sleeve Surgery?

Yes, following a specific post-operative diet plan is essential for successful recovery and weight loss. Your healthcare provider will provide you with detailed instructions on what to eat and when to introduce different types of food.

Gastric Sleeve Recovery Time

Gastric Sleeve Surgery Recovery Time

The recovery time after gastric sleeve surgery can vary from person to person. Generally, individuals can expect to return to their normal activities within 2-4 weeks. It is important to follow the guidance of your surgeon and gradually increase physical activity.

Who is a Candidate for Gastric Sleeve Surgery?

Gastric Sleeve surgery is typically recommended for individuals who meet certain criteria:

Body Mass Index (BMI): Candidates for bariatric surgery generally have a BMI over 30 with or without obesity-related health conditions. However, BMI alone does not determine eligibility, and individual assessment is crucial.

Failed Weight Loss Attempts: Bariatric surgery is often considered when traditional weight loss methods, such as diet and exercise, have been unsuccessful in achieving significant and sustained weight loss.

Commitment to Lifestyle Changes: Candidates for bariatric surgery must be committed to making lifelong changes in their eating habits, physical activity, and overall lifestyle. Surgery is just one part of the process; long-term success relies on these lifestyle modifications.

Only surgeons can determine whether you are eligible for bariatric surgery, so please contact your doctor for further evaluation.

Recovery and Post-Operative Care

After gastric sleeve surgery, it is important to follow the post-operative care instructions provided by your healthcare team. This typically includes a gradual transition to a liquid diet for the first few weeks, followed by a soft food diet and eventually a solid food diet.

It is important to take prescribed medications, such as painkillers and antibiotics, as instructed by your surgeon. Regular follow-up appointments will also be scheduled to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.

During the recovery period, it is crucial to listen to your body and rest when needed. Engaging in light physical activity, such as walking, can help promote healing and prevent complications such as blood clots.

Gastric Sleeve Risks

While the Gastric Sleeve operation is generally considered safe and effective for weight loss, it’s crucial to understand the potential risks and considerations involved. Like any surgical intervention, inherent risks exist, emphasizing the importance of selecting a qualified and experienced healthcare provider to minimize these risks.

Potential risks associated with a Gastric Sleeve procedure include infection, bleeding, leakage, nutritional deficiencies, and complications related to anesthesia. Your healthcare provider will discuss these risks with you during the consultation phase, providing detailed information on how they will be managed to ensure the best possible outcome.

Maintaining realistic expectations regarding the outcomes of a Gastric Sleeve surgery is essential. While it can lead to significant weight loss and improvements in overall health, individual results may vary based on factors such as adherence to dietary and lifestyle changes. Your healthcare provider will assess your unique circumstances and discuss achievable outcomes during the consultation, empowering you to make informed decisions about the procedure.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery Side Effects

Gastric sleeve surgery may lead to temporary discomfort, nausea, or acid reflux. Post-op complications like leakage, blood clots, or nutrient deficiencies are possible but rare. Regular monitoring and adherence to post-operative instructions are crucial for managing these risks and achieving desired weight loss outcomes.

Gastric Bypass vs Gastric Sleeve

Gastric bypass and gastric sleeve surgeries are popular choices for weight loss, but they differ significantly. Gastric bypass involves creating a small stomach pouch and rerouting the small intestine, leading to significant weight loss and health improvements. In contrast, gastric sleeve surgery reduces stomach size without altering the digestive tract. Both have their benefits and risks, with gastric bypass offering potentially greater weight loss but being more invasive. The choice depends on individual health needs and preferences, guided by medical advice.

Long-term Diet After Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Following gastric sleeve operation, it’s crucial to adopt a personalized long-term diet plan in collaboration with healthcare professionals. This plan should prioritize high-protein foods like poultry, fish, eggs, tofu, and legumes to aid in healing and preserve lean muscle mass. Nutrient-dense options such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and healthy fats are essential to meet nutritional needs despite a reduced stomach capacity. Adequate hydration, primarily from water, is necessary to prevent dehydration, while portion control and slow, thorough chewing help prevent discomfort and overeating. Vitamin and mineral supplementation may be required based on individual needs, and avoiding sugary and processed foods is important to support weight loss efforts and stabilize blood sugar levels. Regular monitoring and follow-up appointments with healthcare providers are crucial for assessing progress and making necessary adjustments to the diet plan for long-term success. For more detailed information, please consult with your healthcare team.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery in TurkeyI booked with Global Medical care for Gastric Sleeve Surgery in Turkey on 15th February. From arriving at the airport right through to being dropped off at the airport the service was 10/10. I was greeted at the airport by a lovely man, who chauffeured me around the whole time I was there. I was taken to the hospital for tests ready for my surgery the next day. The surgeon I had DR Mehmet Yalim Uçtum was amazing, all the staff at the hospital was great. After 3 nights in hospital I was then discharged and put in a hotel for the night, which I was then able to go around Izmir to do some shopping. The next morning I was collected and took back to the airport. I travelled alone from England to Turkey for my surgey and not once did I feel at ease, everyone was so lovely. This has to be one of the best decision I have made.Anyone who is thinking about booking with this company, I would highly recommend them. The team have been so supportive, messaging and checking in on at all times, it's lovely to know they have stuck by me all the way.So thanks again to Global Medical care for a great experience *****Kashia Briggs

Gastric SleeveFrom the moment I enquired with Global Medical Care I have received constant communication, flying to Turkey for surgery is very daunting, however we were made to feel welcome and relaxed. Our Dr has been incredible, he must have visited us 8/9 times during our stay, answering any questions, and really made me feel that he cared. Our translator Sammy was on hand to help with anything we needed and even a rep from GMC came and saw us and spent time with us. Gastric Sleeve is a big operation and the team made us feel so supported. Our surgeon has just text even after discharge. I can’t thank you all enough. My life has completely changed.

The best decision with global medical care team.Just on my last day before travelling back home to England, after having a gastric sleeve with Dr Yalim Ucktum via Global Medical Care. Right from the initial contact, I felt confident in my decision and comforted by every question answered by them. When we got to Turkey, everything was ready, the transfers were lovely big Mercedes, when we got to the hospital for our first night, our English translator was there straight away and ordered us dinner. We started with our first test which then carried on the next morning, there are so many tests and this was really reassuring. Our doctor came to visit us before our op and just is the loveliest man. The Global Medical Care team were also there, which was lovely as we had been speaking with them for so long. The op itself went really well, and we’ve had great after care from the whole team, including the doctor who kept coming to check on us. I would recommend over and over.AMY WINTER Gastric Sleeve

Total recognition for hair transplants with GMC!
Once again, a big thank you to the whole team at global médical care who did an excellent job for my hair transplant. A very warm welcome, but above all real explanations about the procedure itself, as well as excellent follow-up before, during and after the operation. Both the team and Mr Albert, the Swiss contact, regularly check up on us and are ready to answer all our questions so that everything goes as smoothly as possible. You should know that there are a very large number of hospitals and clinics offering this service, but they are not all the same. This team is very professional and respects to the letter all the aseptic rules for this type of operation, as I myself was a nurse in France, I was very careful with the equipment, changing sterile gloves each time I entered the operating room...

FAQs

Gastric sleeve surgery is a permanent procedure. The portion of the stomach removed during the operation does not grow back. However, maintaining the weight loss benefits requires a long-term commitment to healthy lifestyle changes, including diet and exercise.

The cost of gastric sleeve surgery in Turkey is significantly more affordable than in many Western countries, typically ranging between $3,500 and $6,500. This comprehensive cost includes the surgical procedure, hospital stay, pre and post-operative care, and often, travel arrangements.

Typically, patients are advised to stay in Turkey for around 7-10 days after gastric sleeve surgery. This period allows for a couple of days of hospital stay post-surgery, followed by regular check-ups and recovery time before traveling back.

After gastric sleeve surgery, patients will need to adapt to a new way of eating. Initially, the diet is liquid-based, gradually moving to pureed, soft, and then solid foods. Over time, patients can eat a variety of foods but in significantly smaller quantities than before.

Three months after gastric sleeve surgery, patients can usually incorporate most liquids, including non-carbonated, non-alcoholic beverages, into their diet. However, it’s always important to follow your surgeon’s or dietitian’s advice.
