Gastrectomy No. 1 in Istanbul
It is a surgical operation in which the stomach is sleeved, or in other words, cutting and removing part of the stomach surgically through the endoscope through 4 holes in the abdomen, The goal is to reduce the stomach by cutting and circumventing the stomach.
Gastric sleeve surgery contributes to weight loss effectively and very quickly, in this 70% of the basic stomach volume is cut and removed, Then you get a small stomach. The size is almost like a banana, Where gastric sleeve surgery contributes to reducing the proportion of food entering the body and thus no more calories, In other words, say goodbye to obesity.
Who do we recommend for sleeve gastrectomy?
The people who are eligible for gastric sleeve surgery are obese, And the average volumetric mass in the body to more than 40 and does not suffer from any diseases, Or an average of more than 35 and suffers from diseases resulting from obesity such as diabetes, pressure or high cholesterol and bone diseases.
(BMI = quotient of weight divided in kilograms by square of height in meters).
Studies and research related to obesity have proven that an obese patient – whose body mass factor has reached 40 – cannot get rid of excess weight without resorting to surgical intervention that treated the cause of obesity.
How does sleeve gastrectomy help reduce weight?
sleeve gastrectomy, or as we mentioned, is the cutting and separation of the stomach longitudinally, Where the size of the stomach, which has become smaller, contributes to reducing the amounts of food, so the speaker cannot eat large amounts of food, which exceed the need of his body of food.
Also, the hormone (ghrelin), one of the hormones responsible for the feeling of hunger, decreases its secretion a lot after the operation – in many patients – so the feeling of hunger decreases for several months.
How is the patient prepared for sleeve gastrectomy?
Because patient safety is our most important goal in our work, We first pay attention to the pre-operation stage, Where comprehensive medical examinations are performed for the patient, which includes comprehensive blood tests, heart tests, and medical advice for both the doctor specialized in performing the operation and the anesthesiologist, whose decision is one of the most important decisions to prepare the patient before the operation.
At this stage, we are informed by the patient who made the decision to perform the operation, whether a man or a female, of all the medicines that he uses periodically, which are of great interest to us, as this axis is important, as some medicines must be stopped before the operation for a specific period determined by the specialist doctor.
Getting rid of diseases caused by obesity after gastric sleeve procedure:
There are many diseases resulting from obesity that the patient gets rid of after the sleeve gastrectomy :
High blood pressure
Heart disease and vascular blockage.
Infections of bones and joints.
Cardiac arrest and breathing.
Nocturnal apnea when sleeping.
Infection with gallstones.
What will happen to you in the hospital?
The operation usually does not take from one to two hours, depending on the ease or difficulty of the case, and you will often stay after 24 to 48 hours in the hospital, to start moving, Drink warm liquids within hours after the operation.
As for the pain resulting from the operation, the pain is often centered in the area (mouth of the stomach), In our centers, with the development of painkillers and methods of administration, the pain has become much less than before, as the pain ranges from half an hour to an hour after the operation.
The patient is also given antiemetics and antacids intravenously, Which reduces the occurrence of vomiting after the operation, This led to the development of the process with a very comfortable overall security.
Weight loss rate after the procedure:
The rate of weight loss after gastric bypass surgery is divided into two stages:
And be in the first month after the operation, Where the weight loss ranges between 8 to 18 kg.
This stage lasts between 4 to 6 months after the operation and sometimes lasts up to a year and a year and a half if the patient is a person suffering from thyroid or pituitary diseases.
When is the operation successful?
The success rate of gastric sleeve surgery can be estimated by achieving the patient’s own goals in addition to a range of other factors.
One of the widespread beliefs in the mirror is to consider gastric sleeve surgery as a tool magic in weight loss, This is not true , but it is an effective aid tool and also the patient must use it correctly, To get the best results and maintain the results permanently, The success rate of the operation can be measured by the percentage of weight loss, If the patient manages to lose 50-60% of the excess weight during the first year, we can consider the operation successful.
Can children and adolescents have gastric sleeve surgery?
Nowadays, gastric sleeve surgery is the most common procedure for children and adolescents, This happened after approval from the International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity and Metabolic Disorders, After studies conducted by the American Society for Bariatric Surgery, it was found that sleeve gastrectomy causes significant weight loss in children and adolescents, and those between the ages of 5 and 21 , They also compared weight loss with adults.
