Understanding Obesity

Before diving into the details of obesity surgery, it’s important to understand what obesity is and its impact on overall health. Obesity is a medical condition characterized by excessive accumulation of body fat, which can significantly increase the risk of various health problems, including:

  1. Type 2 Diabetes: Obesity is closely linked to insulin resistance and an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
  2. Cardiovascular Disease: Excess weight puts strain on the heart and blood vessels, leading to conditions such as hypertension, coronary artery disease, and stroke.
  3. Joint Problems: Obesity can contribute to joint pain, arthritis, and limited mobility.
  4. Sleep Apnea: Excess weight can cause interruptions in breathing during sleep, leading to sleep apnea and disrupted sleep patterns.
  5. Mental Health Issues: Obesity is associated with a higher risk of depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem.

The Need for Obesity Surgery

For individuals with severe obesity who have not achieved sustainable weight loss through diet and exercise alone, obesity surgery can be a life-changing solution. Also known as bariatric surgery, obesity surgery aims to reduce the size of the stomach or modify the digestive system, leading to significant weight loss and improved health outcomes. It is a long-term solution that can help patients achieve and maintain a healthier weight, alleviate obesity-related health issues, and enhance their overall quality of life.

Types of Obesity Surgery

There are several types of obesity surgery procedures available in Turkey, each with its own unique benefits and considerations. The most common types of obesity surgery include:

Gastric Bypass Surgery

Gastric bypass surgery is a procedure that involves creating a small pouch at the top of the stomach and rerouting the small intestine. This restricts the amount of food you can eat and reduces the absorption of calories and nutrients. Gastric bypass surgery often leads to significant weight loss and can also improve or resolve obesity-related conditions such as type 2 diabetes.

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Sleeve gastrectomy, also known as gastric sleeve surgery, involves removing a large portion of the stomach to create a smaller, banana-shaped sleeve. This restricts the amount of food you can eat and reduces hunger by reducing the production of the hunger hormone ghrelin. Sleeve gastrectomy promotes weight loss and can improve or resolve many obesity-related conditions.

Gastric Band Surgery

Gastric band surgery involves placing an adjustable band around the upper part of the stomach to create a smaller pouch. The band can be tightened or loosened to control the amount of food that can be consumed. Gastric band surgery is a less invasive procedure and can be adjusted or removed if necessary.

Duodenal Switch

Duodenal switch surgery combines a sleeve gastrectomy with intestinal rearrangement. It involves removing a portion of the stomach to create a smaller sleeve and rerouting the small intestine to reduce calorie absorption. Duodenal switch surgery leads to significant weight loss and can be effective for individuals with high body mass index (BMI) or certain medical conditions.

Getting my eyebrows transplanted on my scar was amazing, and the communication with Ayhan was great; before flying to Turkey for the surgery, Necip and the other doctors were extremely cooperative, and my scar has now disappeared after 10 months! Having such an easy process, I will surely return. Thank you so much!

Super Dienstleistung. Im Vorfeld alles ordentlich geplant und inklusive Flugafentransfer und Hotel perfekt organisiert. Die Klinik war sauber und der Arzt und das Personal kompetent und englischsprachig, teilweise deutsch. Die OP lief ohne Probleme und auch im Nachhinein wurde ich gut betreut. Danke.

I recently had my dental work done with Saluss Medical Group in Antalya. What an AMAZING experience! The entire team, from the airport pick up driver to the dentist, was just beyond anything I could have expected. I had wanted 12 crowns and when I showed up, the dentist told me I only needed 8. That’s when I was sure this was healthcare first and foremost. He gave me honesty and transparency and showed me all my treatment care plan options. The patient centred collaborative care put me at ease. The technology and cleanliness of the clinic was also very impressive. My health coordinator, Ipak, was just an absolute gem. She was available 24/7 without hesitation. She helped me navigate and acted as my advocate at every dental appointment. She went above and beyond the call of duty for sure. I felt like family by the end of the trip. As someone who works in the health care field, I can be sure that this is not the standard in North America. I was blown away by the service, expertise and hospitality of the Saluss Medical Group. 10/10!!! I can not recommend enough!

Comme beaucoup j'ai hésité longtemps avant de faire une opération dentaire. Je suis très satisfait du résultat et je regrette de ne pas avoir fait ça plus tôt. Du transfert aéroport à l'opération et post opération avec traducteur très professionnel. Je recommande !

Рекомендую цю клініку, недавно робив операцію на ніс, лікар знає свою роботу, хоть я і трохи боявся, але лікар дуже добре заспокоював, і я навіть не помітив. коли пройшла ця операція, не відчував ніякої болі, дуже вдячний цьому лікарю. Окремо хочу подякувати перекладачу Ренат, дуже хороший хлопець, під час коли до нього написав, в любій годині, в любій хвилині, він звʼязувався з лікарем, і відповідав на мої питання, дуже радий що вибрав саме цю клініку, і вам раджу, не пожалієте, і ще, не памʼятаю як шофера звати, але також дуже приємний хлопець, прошу клініку звернути увагу на цих 2 хлопців, і як мінімум гарно віддячити їм)))
