Bariatric Surgery

Procedures

Gastric Sleeve Surgery is a minimally invasive weight loss procedure that helps patients struggling with obesity to achieve significant weight loss.

Unlike other weight loss surgeries, the gastric sleeve procedure removes a portion of the stomach, leaving a smaller, banana-shaped stomach that can hold less food, thereby reducing appetite and calorie intake.

With successful surgery, patients can expect to lose up to 60% of excess body weight within the first year, and see an improvement in obesity-related health issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea.

At UK Turkey Health, we offer a range of bariatric surgery options, including gastric sleeve, to help our patients achieve their weight loss goals and improve their quality of life. Contact us to schedule a consultation with our experienced team of professionals.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if I qualify for weight loss surgery?

Strict guidelines for obesity surgery have been set out by obesity surgical societies. This is to ensure the safety of any bariatric procedure.

  • Your BMI is above 40 kg/m2
  • Your BMI is above 35 and you have a medical condition associated with obesity (comorbidity)
  • You must be over 18 and under 70 years old

Comorbidities include:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Depression
  • Fertility issues
  • Several forms of cancer
  • Hypertension
  • Sleep Apnea
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Gout

Patients must also have:

  • Acceptable level of operative risk
  • Understanding of the procedure and the risks associated
  • Absence of drug or alcohol problem
  • A willingness for a life-style change and follow up consultations
How can I determine if I am eligible for weight loss surgery?

Obesity surgical societies have established strict guidelines for bariatric procedures to ensure safety. Patients may qualify for surgery if their BMI is above 40 kg/m2, or above 35 with comorbidities such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, or sleep apnea.

Patients must also be between 18 and 70 years old, have an acceptable level of operative risk, understand the procedure and associated risks, have no drug or alcohol problems, and be willing to make lifestyle changes and attend follow-up consultations. BMI can be calculated by dividing a person’s weight in kilograms by their height in meters squared, with a healthy range falling between 18.5 and 24.9.

You can calculate Body Mass Calculation using your height and weight.

The formula is BMI = kg/m2 where kg is a person’s weight in kilograms and m2 is their height in metres squared.

A BMI of 25.0 or more is overweight, while the healthy range is 18.5 to 24.9

Example:
Weight 140 kgs
Height 1.70 metres
Square metre of height (1.70 x 1.70) 2.89
BMI = 48

How much weight can I expect to lose after weight loss surgery?

Success rates vary, but on average, patients may lose 50-70% of their excess weight. For example, a person with a BMI of 42 and an excess weight of 51kg may expect to lose approximately 50% of that weight with a gastric band, or approximately 70% with a sleeve or bypass.

What are the risks associated with weight loss surgery?

All surgeries come with risks, and bariatric procedures are no exception. Patients should discuss possible complications with their surgeon and follow pre- and post-operative instructions carefully to minimize risks.

Risks may include dumping syndrome, gallstones, hernias, internal bleeding or bleeding from the surgical wound, leakage, perforation of the stomach or intestines, organ injury, ulceration, stricture, and nutritional deficiencies.

What should I do to prepare for weight loss surgery?

Before surgery, patients should follow their doctor’s pre-operative instructions carefully. These may include adhering to the Atkins diet for two weeks to reduce liver fat, consuming clear fluids regularly 48 hours prior to surgery, taking prescribed laxatives to cleanse the colon, and stopping all non-essential medications, including over-the-counter drugs and herbal supplements, for at least 7 days before surgery.

What lifestyle and dietary changes are required after weight loss surgery?

Studies show that the best long-term results are achieved when patients commit to eating healthy foods, taking nutritional supplements, and having routine blood work for monitoring purposes.

After surgery, patients must commit to making the emotional and physical changes necessary for successful weight loss and long-term weight maintenance. This may involve reducing fat and carbohydrate intake, increasing protein consumption, and eliminating grazing, snacking, and processed carbohydrates.

Patients should also drink plenty of water, eat smaller meals over a longer period of time, and avoid drinking water or fluids with solid food.

What can I expect from weight loss trends after surgery?

Patients can typically expect the greatest weight loss to occur within the first six months, with weight loss continuing for a total of 12-18 months.

Plateaus in weight loss may occur for up to a month, signalling a need to re-examine eating and exercise habits. Weight regain may occur if calorie intake increases, exercise decreases, or old habits return.
