Gastric Sleeve Surgery


Gastric sleeve surgery, also known as stomach reduction, usually takes 1 to 2 hours, although it varies depending on the physical condition of the patient. Gastric sleeve surgery is a surgical procedure used in the treatment of obesity. In this procedure, part of the stomach is surgically removed in order to reduce the size of the stomach. During the gastric sleeve procedure, a long, narrow tube-shaped area is created on the left side of the stomach. This tube reduces the capacity of the stomach, allowing less food intake.

Gastric sleeve surgery is performed to correct obesity-related health problems and promote weight loss. This surgical procedure can also help manage diseases often associated with obesity. Additionally, sleeve gastrectomy surgery may be an option for people who are not suitable for other bariatric surgery options.

    Risks of Obesity
    Obesity is now referred to as a disease of old age. Obesity, the prevalence of which in the world and in our country is increasing day by day, can cause serious health problems if not treated in appropriate conditions. As BMI increases, the risk of developing many diseases that can have serious consequences, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure, increases. When dealing with the obesity problem, lifestyle changes that include a healthy diet and exercise should be made first. If the patients do not get the desired results with this method or decide to undergo treatment in advanced cases, bariatric surgeries are the best option.
    How is Gastric Sleeve Surgery Performed?
    Bariatric surgery is usually performed laparoscopically, using small incisions and special surgical instruments. In this procedure, the stomach is thinned into a tube on the left side, thus reducing the stomach capacity and the person can take in less food. The surgery usually takes 1 to 2 hours and is performed under general anesthesia. Patients generally experience a rapid recovery period after surgery, and the laparoscopic technique requires less surgical intervention than traditional surgeries. After surgery, patients follow a special diet and lifestyle recommendations. This method can help people who want to deal with obesity achieve their goals of weight loss and a healthy lifestyle.
    What Should Be Considered After Gastric Sleeve Surgery?
    Gastric sleeve surgery is a treatment method that provides weight loss over time and needs to be supported by lifestyle changes. After gastric sleeve surgery, patients' food intake is limited, however, patients should be nourished with high nutritional value by choosing the right food. By acting within the framework of the created nutrition plan, permanent weight loss can be achieved in a healthy way.
    Who Should Have Gastric Sleeve Surgery?
    Gastric sleeve surgery can be applied to individuals who want to deal with obesity and are not successful with other weight loss methods. Generally, it can be considered for those with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 and above or for people with a body mass index of 35-40 but who have health problems related to obesity. Gastric sleeve surgery may be considered when other weight loss methods fail or are unsuitable. However, each patient is unique, and before surgery, doctors evaluate the person's general health, medical history, and risk factors associated with obesity. Certain situations, such as pregnancy, serious stomach diseases or those with psychological problems, may be among the situations that are not suitable for sleeve gastrectomy surgery. As a result, individuals considering this type of surgery should undergo a thorough evaluation and consultation with their doctor.
