What is gastric sleeve surgery?

Gastric sleeve surgery is a type of bariatric (weight loss) surgery. It works by reducing the size of your stomach, usually removing around 80% and leaving a tube-shaped “sleeve” about the size and shape of a banana. This means that the amount of food you can eat in one sitting is restricted, leading to a reduced calorie intake.

Reducing the size of your stomach can also help to reduce the amount of hunger hormones that your stomach produces, meaning that your appetite is decreased.

It’s one of the most commonly performed surgeries worldwide, with around 380,000 procedures carried out each year.

If you’ve tried to lose weight through diet and exercise without seeing results, or you’ve been told you’re at risk of developing obesity-related health conditions, then gastric sleeve surgery could be the solution to help you achieve your weight loss goals. It’s usually simpler, quicker and safer than other types of weight loss surgery.

The gastric sleeve surgery process in Turkey

  2. You’ll have a Zoom consult with the surgeon before departure so that you can say hello, ask any questions you may have, and discuss what’s going to happen.
  3. After arriving in Turkey and setting in, you’ll have an in-clinic consultation where a physical examination can take place before the surgery. You’ll also be given instructions on what to avoid before the surgery.

After this, they’ll use gas to expand your abdomen so they have space to work, and will place a camera with a light on through the incision. This will help your doctor see exactly what they’re doing.
  5. Creating the sleeve – Your surgeon will then divide and separate your stomach using a stomach stapler to create the smaller sleeve. The remaining part of your stomach will be removed, and your incisions will be closed.
