What Is Bariatric Surgery?

Bariatric surgery, which is also called metabolic surgery, is a group of surgeries that are performed to help obese people lose weight. If you have not got the desired result from various and strict diets, bariatric surgery in Turkey is one of the most effective weight loss methods.

Different bariatric surgery types in Turkey work by modifying and altering your digestive system (usually the stomach and sometimes the small intestine) to regulate the amount of calories you consume and absorb. They can also reduce hunger signals from your digestive system to your brain.

These bariatric surgeries can help treat and prevent many metabolic diseases associated with obesity, including diabetes and fatty liver disease.

What Are The Different Types Of Bariatric Surgery In Turkey?

  1. Gastric Sleeve
    Gastric sleeve, also called sleeve gastrectomy, is the most common bariatric surgery in Turkey and worldwide, which may be because it is relatively simpler and is either safe or minimally invasive for most people. In sleeve gastrectomy surgery, they simply remove a large part of your stomach, about 80%, and leave a small, tubular part like a sleeve.
    This method naturally reduces the amount of food you can eat in one meal and makes you feel full faster. It also reduces the hunger hormones that are normally produced in your stomach. This helps stabilize metabolism, reduce appetite, and regulate blood sugar.

  2. Gastric Bypass
    Gastric bypass is also known as Roux-en-Y, which is a French term meaning (Y-shaped). In this method, first, surgeons create a small bag from your stomach in the upper part and separate it from the lower part of the stomach with surgical staples. Your small intestine is then divided into two parts and the new part is brought up to connect to the stomach pouch.
    Food now flows through the new, now smaller stomach into the lower part of your small intestine, bypassing the rest. This causes your stomach to hold less food and also limits the amount of nutrients your small intestine can absorb.

  3. Gastric Balloon Surgery
    Gastric balloon surgery is performed through the mouth without physical surgery with local anesthesia. In this surgical procedure, a large volume of the stomach is filled with a balloon containing a special gas or liquid.
    People who perform gastric balloon in Turkey will feel full with little food consumption and thus experience weight loss. The gastric balloon can reduce between 20 and 30% of excess weight, which is less used due to its high risk.

  4. Gastric Band
    An adjustable gastric band is a silicone device placed around the upper part of the stomach to limit the amount of food a person consumes. Its effect on obesity-related diseases and long-term weight loss is less than other methods. Therefore, its use has decreased greatly in the last decade.
    The feeling of fullness depends on the degree of constriction created in the opening of the stomach and the rest of the stomach. The opening size can be adjusted by injecting fluid through the subcutaneous port. Food passes through the stomach normally but is restricted by the narrowing caused by the band. This method is less successful against type 2 diabetes and has few effects on metabolism.

  5. Duodenal Switch
    A less common type of weight loss surgery is called biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch (BPD-DS). In this procedure, your surgeon removes part of the stomach to create a gastric sleeve, such as a sleeve gastrectomy. The sleeve is then attached to a portion of the lower small intestine. The sleeve holds far less food and your body absorbs far fewer calories and nutrients from food.

  6. Gastric Botox
    Gastric botox, also known as endoscopic botox injection, is a non-surgical procedure that involves injecting small amounts of botulinum toxin (botox) into the stomach muscles. Botox is a neurotoxin that blocks the release of acetylcholine (a neurotransmitter that signals muscles to contract).
    Botox injection into the stomach muscles relaxes them, which slows down the digestion process. This can lead to a feeling of fullness, which can help reduce food intake and weight loss.
    The stomach botox method needs to be repeated in many different and continuous sessions for maximum effectiveness, that’s why it is less popular.

Weight loss surgery is one of the surgeries that are used to overcome obesity. Usually, in the treatment of obesity or overweight, bariatric surgery types in Turkey are not the first line of treatment. After the ineffectiveness of the conventional treatment methods for obesity such as exercise and increasing physical activity, drug therapy as well as diet, bariatric surgery in Turkey is one of the options considered as a solution.

A little higher, we explained the different mechanisms of weight loss surgery. Surgeries such as gastric sleeve and gastric bypass surgery are based on changing the anatomy of the digestive system.  Also, surgeries such as body contouring (which itself is divided into different categories) and liposuction are used to overcome excess weight.

Before performing bariatric surgery in Turkey and confirming the entry criteria, the health of the person applying for the operation must be confirmed. To confirm the health of the person applying for surgery, the surgeon uses methods such as physical examination, history taking, and various tests. After confirming the person's health, he loses some of his extra weight by following a restrictive diet until the time of surgery.

Considering the physical changes of the operated person and also the possibility of side effects such as hair loss, there is usually a need to take medicinal supplements including vitamins and minerals.
