Gastric Sleeve in Turkey

In addition to gastric bypass surgery, tubular stomach surgery is one of the standard procedures in obesity surgery in Antalya. The success of this surgical method, which is also often referred to as sleeve-gastrectomy (“sleeve” means “tube”), is essentially based on the restriction of the amount of food and the associated lower nutrient intake.

Effective stomach reduction by Sleeve Gastrectomy in Turkey

As a result of the stomach reducing operation in Antalya, the stomach volume shrinks to about the size of a banana. This small stomach can only absorb small amounts of food. The stomach wall expands to a maximum after a very small portion of food, so that the patient feels full after only a few bites. In addition, the stomach reduction sets hormonal changes in motion. Since the operated, smaller stomach produces smaller amounts of the hormone ghrelin (hunger hormone), people with a tube stomach from Turkey have significantly less appetite than before.

Intact stomach function after Sleeve Gastrectomy in Turkey

During a tubal stomach surgery in Turkey, the surgeon separates about eighty to ninety percent of the intact stomach from the remaining stomach and removes it from the patient’s body. For this reason, this surgical procedure, which in Turkey is generally performed laparoscopically and minimally invasive (keyhole technique), is one of the restrictive procedures in obesity surgery. In contrast to the gastric bypass in Turkey, a tube stomach cannot be “rebuilt” to its original initial situation later.

The big advantage of a tube stomach compared to other surgical methods of obesity surgery in Antalya is that the reduced stomach version retains all the functions of the original stomach. The stomach entrance and the closure of the stomach exit remain unaffected by the laparoscopic tube stomach surgery Turkey, so that the patient can eat, digest and excrete small amounts of food normally after the recovery phase with slow food build-up. With the appropriate indication, a sleeve gastrectomy in Antalya is shorter and less stressful than, for example, a Roux-en-Y stomach bypass.
