Effective and Permanent Weight Loss through Sleeve Gastrectomy!
Obesity has become one of the most common diseases in the world, especially in the last decade. Obesity is a very serious health problem because it causes many acute or chronic fatal diseases and many physical and mental disorders related to bodily health. 
Sleeve Gastrectomy is the most preferred treatment method for patients who want to lose weight.
With the sleeve gastrectomy method, the volume of the stomach is reduced, effective and permanent weight loss is aimed, and thus the patients feel full faster with small portions. Since the stomach is shaped into a tube by reducing its size, the desire for food decreases and the brain feels less hungry.
We adopt a holistic approach to the treatment of obesity with our experienced physician staff and personalized treatment programs.

What is Sleeve Gastrectomy?
Sleeve gastrectomy is a kind of bariatric surgery. Sleeve gastrectomy is usually performed with the laparoscopic method, or as it is commonly known, as a closed surgery. Reducing the size of the stomach through sleeve gastrectomy limits the amount of food that can be consumed. In addition, after the stomach size is reduced, hormonal changes occur that aid in weight loss. These changes contribute to the patient's postoperative fall to the ideal weight or to maintain the ideal weight.

Why is Sleeve Gastrectomy performed?
Sleeve gastrectomy is performed to eliminate the risk for health problems, not ​for aesthetic aspect. After sleeve gastrectomy operation, it has been observed that high success has been achieved in many co-morbid diseases, especially diabetes, concomitant to obesity. On the other hand, sleeve gastrectomy operation can also be used as a transitional operation in patients with severe obesity. Severely obese patients can be prepared for bypass surgery following sleeve gastrectomy. 
When obesity is not treated, it causes the following health problems:
  • Heart diseases
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Cancer
  • Infertility
After sleeve gastrectomy, patients are less hungry, eat less, eat slowly, and get full quickly.

The operation does not cause any serious problems in the work of the digestive system. In the first months, food intake is relatively limited, weight loss is rapid. In the long term, no significant problem is experienced in the absorption of the nutrients required by the body. Sleeve gastrectomy is generally a mild-moderate risky operation among all surgeries. The vast majority of patients do not experience any additional problems. The complication rate is around 2%.

Does sleeve gastrectomy cause severe pain? 
Since the surgery is performed with a laparoscopic technique, mobilization can be done on the same day. Hospital stay of 3-4 days is adequate. You can return to normal daily life within a few weeks. Follow-up results are close to perfect. Patients begin to lose weight within days after surgery. Within a few months, the weakening becomes evident. Long-term medical follow-up results of thousands of patients show that patients with sleeve gastrectomy lost 70-80% of their excess weight.
Trust that sleeve gastrectomy operation will completely change your life in Medical Park Hospitals, which has a history of many successful operations with its experienced specialist staff and provides a unique treatment process! 

Most of the excess weight is lost within one year after sleeve gastrectomy
The physical and mental relaxation after weight loss noticeably increases the quality of daily life. It offers a fresh start in life. After surgery, three-quarters of obesity-related diseases such as type 2 diabetes and sleep apnea, more than half of high blood fat level and high blood pressure problems, half of knee pain and most of leg varicose veins disappear. These improvements occur spontaneously with the onset of weight loss, without the need for any other treatment. The fact that the change created by the surgery is close to the natural functioning (physiological), the debilitating effect is satisfactory and the rate of side effects is low, has led to the fact that sleeve gastrectomy has become an operation that is increasingly preferred by patients and surgeons in recent years. 

How is the Normalization Process After Sleeve Gastrectomy? 
Since the abdominal muscles and membranes are not cut in laparoscopic surgeries, no serious postoperative pain occurs. With simple painkillers, patients continue their life within a few days. Due to the laparoscopic method, only very small incision scars remain on the abdomen. These scars become completely invisible within a few months.
