Gastric Bypass Surgery Turkey

Discover the life-changing benefits of Gastric Bypass Surgery in Turkey, also known as Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. This procedure involves creating a small stomach pouch and connecting it to the small intestine.

By reducing the size of the stomach, patients feel fuller sooner and consume less food. With limited absorption, this surgery ensures that nutrients are removed without being absorbed.

Gastric Bypass Surgery is the most common weight loss procedure and helps patients quickly shed excess weight and improve their overall health. Contact us to learn more about this safe and effective treatment option.

Gastric Bypass Surgery

Procedures

Gastric bypass surgery is highly recommended for patients with obesity or morbid obesity who have tried other weight loss methods without success. Generally, individuals with a body mass index (BMI) of over 40 are considered eligible for this procedure.

But it’s not just about weight loss; gastric bypass surgery can also help alleviate other health issues such as insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, asthma, hypertension, sleep apnoea, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).

At our top-rated medical facility in Turkey, we offer a comprehensive weight loss surgery package that includes gastric bypass surgery, as well as all necessary pre- and post-operative care.

Our experienced and highly skilled medical professionals will work closely with you to ensure that you get the best possible care and achieve your weight loss goals.

So why wait?  Call us today to schedule a consultation and take the first step towards a healthier, happier you.

Step 1: Precise Incisions

The surgeon carefully makes several small incisions (each between 5 and 15mm long) into the abdomen. Using specialized surgical instruments and a camera, the surgeon gains access to the abdominal cavity.

Step 2: Creating a Small Pouch

The upper part of the stomach is stapled, forming a new, small pouch that can only hold 30-50ml of food. This new stomach is separate from the rest of the stomach and effectively limits the amount of food that can be consumed.

Step 3: Re-routing Intestines

The newly created stomach is joined to the middle section of the small intestine (the jejunum) while bypassing the first part of the small intestine (the duodenum). This rerouting of the intestine ensures that less food is absorbed and calories are reduced.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Roux-en-Y surgery?

The Roux-en-Y surgery involves creating a new stomach pouch from which the small bowel is reconnected, resulting in a ‘Y’ shape. The narrow opening connecting the stomach pouch and small bowel is called the Roux limb, named after a French surgeon, Roux.

The remnant stomach is still connected to the left arm of the “Y” and carries the acids produced in the excluded stomach, digestive juices produced by the liver and pancreas, and some juices produced by the small bowel itself.

Can I have laparoscopic gastric bypass after a previous open abdominal surgery?

UK Turkey Health evaluates patients on an individual basis, and our experienced surgeons believe that all patients have the right to choose minimally invasive surgery as an option, even after open abdominal surgery.

Is it possible to have laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery with a high BMI?

Our experienced surgeons have successfully performed laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery on a patient with a BMI of 88. UK Turkey Health does not exclude any patient based on their BMI alone, and our surgeons will evaluate each patient individually.

What is the hospital stay after gastric bypass surgery?

Most patients can expect to stay in the hospital for two days after laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery and up to four days after open gastric bypass surgery.

Why do some people experience diarrhoea after gastric bypass surgery?

Diarrhoea can occur after surgery due to third spacing, which is the filling of the bowel space with water that may pass as loose stool.

Diarrhoea may also be triggered by specific foods, such as fruit juices, high-sugar and high-starch foods, and potatoes.

If diarrhoea persists, patients should examine their diet and contact their surgeon.

What should I do if I see blood in my stool after gastric bypass surgery?

It is normal to see a small amount of blood in the stool after surgery due to trauma to the tissues during the procedure. However, if the blood persists or is significant, patients should contact UK Turkey Health.

What is the risk of infection, and how can I prevent it?

While the incidence of infection is low, patients should shower daily with antibacterial soap and wash their incisions gently.

Patients should also avoid swimming and taking a bath until their incisions are well-healed and have formed closed scabs.

How much weight can I expect to lose after gastric bypass surgery?

Most patients can expect to lose 60-70% of their excess weight in the first year after surgery. It is important to note that the standard weight charts may not reflect your best weight, where you feel and function at peak health.

Can I get pregnant after Gastric Bypass Surgery?

It is advised that women of child-bearing age should wait at least a year and a half after surgery to get pregnant. Delaying pregnancy will allow you to get proper nutrition for yourself and your baby.

Hormone levels may also change as you lose weight, making you more fertile. If you do get pregnant, please notify UK Turkey Health to develop a contraceptive plan.

How much help will I need at home after surgery?

It depends on your daily demands. For instance, you must avoid lifting more than 15-20 pounds for a month after surgery, which may require childcare assistance if you have small children.

Walking and climbing stairs are allowed, but driving and vigorous physical activity should be avoided.

What can I eat right after surgery?

You will receive a comprehensive list of acceptable food and drink during your surgical consultation. However, there is no set cookbook for what and when to eat.

You must develop a new relationship with food based on your preferences and cultural heritage while following a few simple guidelines.

How many calories should I be eating after surgery?

You should eat at least 600 calories per day, which can be a challenge in the early days when you have limited appetite and food tolerance.

Why do some people experience nausea and frothing after surgery?

This can be the most challenging aspect of early recovery. Pay attention to your body’s signals of fullness and stay hydrated.

The pouch instinctively produces a white mucous liquid (frothing) to protect itself when overstimulated or dehydrated, causing nausea.

You can combat frothing with mildly acidic liquids like milky tea, lemon water, or apple cider vinegar.

Is it possible to fail to lose weight with this surgery?

The surgery changes your food tolerances and capacity, leading to behavioural changes if you adopt a healthier lifestyle. However, it does not fix you, and you must consciously choose to develop healthier eating habits.

The surgery is not automatic, and you can choose to out eat it if you don’t change your relationship with food.

Why is it sometimes necessary to vomit after surgery?

The pouch and Roux limb restrict the passage of food, and food texture affects the passage of food. Heavy or dense foods exit slowly, while soups or liquids pass quickly.

If food gets stuck, the only solution is to cough it out. Vomiting should be avoided since it is rough on the pouch. If you vomit, rest your pouch by going on a full liquid diet for the next few meals.

If you cannot keep even clear liquids down, call UK Turkey Health for assistance.
