Obesity Surgery in Turkey; Obesity is the state in which excessive fat tissue rate in the body exceeds the desired level. Above 25% of the body weight in men and above 30% of the body weight in women refers to the presence of obesity.
Obesity is a medical condition that occurs when a person carries excess weight or body fat that might affect their health. A doctor can diagnose by patient weight and height calculation.
Body mass index (BMI) is a tool that doctors use to assess if a person is at an appropriate weight for their age, sex, and height. The measurement combines height and weight.
A BMI between 25 and 29.9 indicates that a person is carrying excess weight. A BMI of 30 or over suggests that a person may have obesity

How is obesity which causes many serious health problems treated?
If the methods in the treatment of obesity is explained in 5 groups;
Medical nutrition (diet) therapy in Obesity
Prepared diet program must be personal. The aim in diet therapy is to reduce body fat depositions by creating an energy gap.
Moreover in the diet, reduction in fat deposits has to be achieved without causing cell loss in muscles and vital organs, while vitamin, mineral and electrolyte loss have to be prevented also.
Exercise therapy in Obesity
Exercise therapy is started after heart and respiration are checked. In earlier stages, exercise therapy is performed moderately as 30-45 minutes, 3 to 5 days per week. Physical activity is started with simple exercises, and it is gradationally increased.
Pharmacologic treatment in Obesity
Supportive medication in the treatment of obesity are certainly not suitable for all the patients. Such medication should be used under advice and control of a doctor.
What is the surgical treatment “Obesity Surgery”, our primary concern?
Obesity is not a health problem which can only be taken under control with diet programs, exercises or medication therapy. With these treatment methods, it is possible to regain the lost weight, or in other words, not to maintain the lost weight. The most effective method in obesity treatment is obesity surgery. Shortly, to rule out one’s obesity problem via surgical intervention.
Obesity surgery basically stands up on two principles. The aim in obesity surgery is; to reduce the volume of the stomach and/or “malabsorption”, which means to provide the prevention of the absorption of nutrition. Obesity surgery can be appealed if obesity duration is more than 5 years and if the patient is 20 to 60 years old.
Surgical intervention for patients with excessive weight in order to lose weight is called obesity surgery or bariatric surgery, which originates from the word “baros”, which means weight in Ancient Greek.
Results of obesity surgery, which is nowadays one of the gradually disseminating methods, are more successful when compared with other methods. Weight loss provided by surgical intervention reduces death rate substantially. The biggest advantage of it is that it reduces obesity-related diseases.
There are also situations which are unsuitable for obesity surgery. These are:
Severe eating disorder
Persistent obesity with excessive use of alcohol
Serious systemic diseases
Diseases that affect upper alimentary tract
Requirement of regular use of anti-inflammatory drugs
Methods used in obesity surgery;
This surgery is known as tube stomach surgery. In this method, a particular segment of the stomach is surgically extracted and a tube-shaped stomach is left. It provides weight loss just by reducing the amount of nutrition.
Gastric By-pass Surgeries in turkey
Surgeries which reduce nutrition intake and the absorption of nutrition are called gastric by-pass surgeries. In this surgical intervention, the stomach is reduced and a part of small intestines are deactivated in terms of digestion and absorption. Classical by-pass surgery, which we call RYGB, is the surgery which reduces the stomach mostly. Absorption control level is nearly zero.
It is the oldest and strongest Obesity Surgery which provides and maintains weight loss for longest term. No life-long diet is used and nutrition is unconstrained. This effect is dependent on absorption control.
LIFE-LONG INTENSIVE VITAMIN AND MINERAL SUPPORT IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY.
Although there is no standard for which surgical method is to be used for which obesity patient, many factors like the patients age, gender, BMI, nutritional habit which caused excessive weight, fat distribution, additional health problems and objective amount of weight loss, play a role in this decision.
Bariatric surgical procedures cause weight loss by restricting the amount of food the stomach can hold, causing malabsorption of nutrients, or by a combination of both gastric restriction and malabsorption. Bariatric procedures also often cause hormonal changes. Most weight loss surgeries today are performed using minimally invasive techniques (laparoscopic surgery).
The most common bariatric surgery procedures are gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, adjustable gastric band, and biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch. Each surgery has its own advantages and disadvantages.
Gastric sleeve procedure, also known as sleeve gastrectomy, involves surgical removal of part of a stomach. This procedure is a permanent one and intends to result in drastic weight loss in individuals suffering from morbid obesity.
During the gastric sleeve procedure, the left side of the stomach is cut and the size is reduced to just 25 percent of its original size. The resulting stomach looks like a banana-like “sleeve.”
The resulting vertical gastric sleeve limits the intake of food due to reduced production of gastric enzymes and digestive juices. You may feel full after eating small amounts of food. This is also known as a “restrictive procedure” as it restricts the amount of food that you can consume at a time. This procedure is performed laparoscopically and is irreversible in nature.

A. You may need to stay 1 or 2 nights in the hospital after vertical gastrectomy.
Q. When can I go back to work?

Q. Will I get scars on the abdomen after the surgery?
A. You will have very fine scars on the abdomen.
Q. Can anyone undergo gastric sleeve procedure?
A. Gastric sleeve surgery is not recommended for patients with the following conditions:
Gastric bypass, also known as Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, is one of the most popular weight loss surgery options during which the size of the stomach is decreased. The reduced size of the stomach allows for reduced consumption of food by the patient, which in turn, results in gradual weight loss. Of all the bariatric procedures, gastric bypass is the most preferred options for weight loss because of the greater possibility of positive outcomes. Moreover, there are no major side effects of gastric bypass.

A. The illnesses will not be reversed because of the surgery alone. But gastric bypass surgery definitely helps reduce the effect of obesity-related illness and may improve the condition of the patient considerably if a strict diet and exercise routine is followed.
