Effective Weight Loss Surgery in Turkey

If you're considering weight-loss surgery, it may pave the way for many exciting opportunities for you, your family, and - most importantly - your health! Why not travel to Turkey to undergo the procedure?

Bariatric surgery is a safe and effective treatment option for those affected by severe obesity. It is a recognized and accepted approach for both weight-loss and many of the conditions that occur as a result of severe obesity; however, not all people affected by severe obesity will qualify for bariatric surgery.

Although the laparoscopic procedure has increasingly gained in popularity and frequency, open procedures are still used in practice today. The approach will depend on the surgeon experience as well as your surgical and medical history.

Bariatric surgery contributes to weight loss in two main ways:

Restriction - surgery is used to physically limit the amount of food the stomach can hold, which limits the number of calories you can eat.

Malabsorption - surgery is used to shorten or bypass part of the small intestine, which reduces the amount of calories and nutrients the body absorbs.

Common types ofweight loss surgery

  • Roux-en-Y gastric bypass
  • Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding
  • Sleeve gastrectomy
  • Duodenal switch with biliopancreatic diversion

Doctors recommend weight loss surgery for people who:

  • Have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or more. This would be about 100 pounds overweight for men or 80 pounds for women.
  • Have a lower BMI (but are still obese) and have a serious health problem related to obesity.
  • Have tried unsuccessfully to lose weight by other means.
  • Fully understand the risks.

Weight loss surgery in Turkey

Generally speaking, the bariatric procedures that result in more weight loss are often accompanied by higher risk and additional lifestyle changes. Every year more and more people travel to Turkey to have weight loss surgery. They choose medical tourism for obtaining treatment that may be far too expensive, in terms of time and money, in their home countries, and bariatric surgery is less expensive in Turkey.

Bariatric surgery benefits

  • Within two to three years after the operation, bariatric surgery usually results in a weight-loss of 10 to 35 percent of total body weight, depending on the chosen procedure.
  • Co-morbidities, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea and others are often reduced or may go into remission.
  • Most will find they require fewer medicines throughout time and many will discontinue their medicines completely.
  • The risks of staying obese are far more dangerous than the surgery risks
