To feel comfortable in one’s own body is one of the prerequisites that shape our lives harmoniously and evenly. However, it is not always possible to change our diet and lifestyle, which involves a lot of exercise, sport and stress management (e.g. Pilates, yoga or meditation). Especially if additional health factors such as obesity, diabetes or cardiovascular diseases occur, a professional doctor should be sought to help you achieve a better quality of life. We at Aesthetic Travel in Antalya offer you several options to accompany you not only on this way, but also you experience a great price saving with us in Turkey!
What surgical options does Aesthetic Travel offer you in Turkey for obesity?
In general, Aesthetic Travel offers both restrictive and bypass techniques in Antalya. Restrictive gastric surgery includes, for example, the gastric balloon, the gastric band and the stomach tube (stomach reduction). In contrast, the minimally invasive bypass techniques include the gastric bypass and the omega bypass as primary variants of a gastric operation (bariatric procedure).
Restrictive gastric surgery techniques in Turkey
In addition to the gastric balloon, which is either simply swallowed or used by your specialist in Turkey on an outpatient basis, there is the possibility of the gastric band, which divides the stomach into two by means of a laparoscopic gastric operation. In addition, we at Aesthetic Travel in Antalya recommend the tube stomach surgery in order to achieve your desired weight and a new quality of life.
The latter describes a stomach reduction, which is often referred to by specialists as a gastrectomy. In a tube stomach surgery, the stomach is reduced by your specialist surgeon in Turkey in such a way that a maximum of 2-3 cm (approx. 85-150 ml) remains and the patient feels saturated more quickly. A further advantage of the tube stomach operation is that the part of the stomach which produces the hunger hormones such as ghrelin is also removed – i.e. this obesity surgical treatment not only reduces your hunger, it also brings about positive changes in obesity-related diseases!
Plastic surgery bypass techniques in Turkey / Antalya
In Turkey, gastric bypass techniques include gastric bypass, mini-bypass (omega bypass), transit bipartition to Santoro and Roux-Y gastric bypass. Furthermore, there is the so-called biliopancreatic diversion and the duodenal switch – however, both techniques are no longer used in Turkey.
All bypass techniques are carried out laparoscopically using the so-called keyhole method – i.e. by means of a special laparoscopy and with only a few incisions in the stomach. The primary goal of the bypass techniques is to bypass a part of the digestive organ in such a way that the intake of carbohydrates and fats is reduced, which would otherwise increase the weight in an unhealthy way with a bad diet.
Unfortunately, this also limits nutrient uptake, which is why patients are forced to take lifelong supplements. Nevertheless the stomach bypass in Turkey in particular counts to a very successful method, in order to reduce the weight up to 70%!
