Gastric Bypass in Turkey – Efficient and Permanent Weight Loss Assured

The Gastric Bypass Turkey is the bypass technique that is considered the most frequently applied surgical procedure both in Turkey and in other countries. However, it is also the most complex gastric surgery in Turkey. In the gastric bypass procedure, a specialist surgeon reduces the size of the stomach so that it then holds only about 15-20 ml. The remainder of the stomach is then sewn to a lower part of the small intestine in such a way that the duodenum is bypassed from digestion.

This is also professionally referred to as a bypass. Due to the bypassing of the duodenum, food and digestive juices, the secretions responsible for enzymatic breakdown, are mixed only in the middle part of the small intestine. This is the primary reason for the reduced calorie intake.

What Are the Disadvantages of a Gastric Bypass?

First and foremost, it should be carefully considered that a restrictive procedure cannot be reversed afterwards. It must be clear to everyone that this involves an anatomical change that is permanent for the rest of one’s life.

However, a qualitative improvement in quality of life is guaranteed in parallel, as you will definitely lose weight gradually! It is also important to mention that, especially with a Gastric Bypass in Turkey, not only is the intake of calories and fats restricted, but the absorption of nutrients is significantly reduced as well. This means that without the additional intake of dietary supplements, a deficiency state can occur.

Gastric Bypass Turkey Reviews

I underwent gastric bypass surgery. My dear companion who looked after me was there for me non-stop, no matter what I needed or wanted to know whether before or after the operation. The surgery itself went well. The hospital is very modern and clean, you always see someone cleaning and the nurses and doctors are incredible, which unfortunately I wasn't able to experience here in Germany. So all in all I was super satisfied. Great praise and thanks to the entire team.

I felt cared for from the first minute. It is rare to find such competent staff. The gastric bypass operation went really well and I've already lost a lot of weight and everything is fine for me. Two days later I was feeling so well that I was able to leave the clinic after just two days. Thank you very much you gave me a new life 😘

Gastric Bypass in Turkey – FAQ

With a gastric bypass operation a part of the stomach will be separated and only a small part will remain. The small intestine will also be cut. One end will be connected to the active part of the stomach, the other end will be diverted, so the nutrients will be merged in the middle of the small intestines.With this method not all components of the nourishment can be resolved and this food residue will be moved to the large intestine. Thanks to this diversion the gastrointestinal tract can absorb less. A feeling of satiety is achieved earlier. Beside of this you can eat less.

A gastric bypass operation takes normally between 90 and 150 minutes. The operation will be performed under general anaesthetic. Medical prevention and rehabilitation will take about a week in the hospital. Patients will be incapable of working for 2 to 3 weeks.

The operation for a gastric bypass will be performed as a keyhole surgery. This means, it will be made several about 2 cms large cuts in the skin. The needed camera and instruments will be inserted here. First a part of the stomach will be severed with a stapler. After this the small intestine will be cut and the lower end will sew to the active part of the stomach. The upper end will sew to the third part of the small intestine and will form a Y.

This surgery is adequate for people with a BMI over 40. If you also suffer from diabetes, hypertension or sleep apnoea an operation is advised with a BMI of 35. However, this operation is only when you have tried all non-operative measures like movement training or nutrition consultation without success for at least six to twelve months.

This is especially advisable as a surgery for people with an excessive consumption of high-calorie foods like sweets or extra fat food and having severe overweight.

It has been proved that a gastric bypass operation achieved very good long-term results. Averagely can be a loss of weight from 65 to 70 percent be achieved.

With the change of the whole physiology of the digestion it is possible that the body will not absorb enough vitamins and it will be necessary to take multivitamins. Furthermore, it can come to flatulence and diarrhoea, less common to circulatory problems after taking sugary foods or drinks. Over time the effect of the small stomach can lessen and larger amounts of food can be consumed.

Within the first six months after the surgery it is advisable not to drink any alcohol. It can lead to an unpleasant feeling of pressure. At this time a complete blood count should be made and the vitamin balance checked to avoid long-term deficiencies. The nourishment should have been changed and the body is to be observed.  Too much fat will result in strong perspiration or cause general discomfort and should be avoided. Principally it is recommendable to get the help of a dietary adviser to make sure the diet is adjusted.

With Aesthetic-Travel you don’t have any additional costs. All our prices are inclusive prices.

Enlargement of the pouch is extremely rare in gastric bypass surgery. In the case of a gastric sleeve, on the other hand, there can be a dilatation, an enlargement or stretching of the rest of the stomach. This expansion can be triggered by continued dietary errors, for example when a patient does not follow the instructions of the nutritionist advising him postoperatively and eats uncontrollably.

It is usually not necessary to take medication after the procedure. After the operation, however, the body must be given lifelong multivitamin preparations to prevent deficiency symptoms and to replace missing vitamins and minerals. Since you have to bear the costs yourself, we would be happy to advise you on cost-effective options.
