One of the most restrictive treatment methods in the form of sleeve surgery in Turkey is gastric banding in Turkey. This is placed around your stomach by one of our specialist surgeons using a minimally invasive technique. Under general anaesthetic and by means of a laparoscopy, the gastric band in Turkey is inserted using the so-called “keyhole method”. The keyhole method means that only a few incisions need to be made in your abdominal wall to then place the band around the upper part of the stomach.
This divides the stomach into two parts, creating a forestomach. Due to the small volume of the created anterior stomach section (the size of a tennis ball), not as much food can be absorbed. If too much food is eaten, this causes unpleasant pressure in the upper abdomen and throat, which can quickly lead to nausea and vomiting. This leads to a certain learning process for patients, especially because the feeling of hunger remains natural!
In general, gastric banding is considered a successful treatment if the patient loses about ½ kilo per week. More specifically, when approximately a 50% reduction in excess weight is achieved through this form of treatment.
As with other restrictive gastric surgeries, the following requirements apply to have a surgical procedure performed in Turkey:

The gastric band is made of hollow silicone. It will be placed around the upper part of the stomach. A pouch is formed in the size of a tennis ball. When the pouch is stretched with food it will signal a feeling of satiety. The gastric band is connected to a small tube with a port system under the skin. With a special needle a fluid can fill the hollow band to regulate the strangulation. More fluid means the more the gastric band will strangulate the rest of the stomach.
Surgery is performed under general anaesthetic and takes 30 to 60 minutes. Your stay in the hospital takes normally 3 to 5 days.
The surgery is performed with the keyhole method with only five 2 centimetres long cuts for camera and instruments. For the port under the skin at the lower end of the sternum it needs a larger cut.
After a month the port will be used the first time to inject a few millimetres of fluid. A contrast medium is injected to make it visible in an X-ray image. This is done to recognize feasible leaks. These injections are normally pain-free.
With a gastric band the loss of weight is slowly but steadily, when all instructions are followed. Fast loss of weight involves health risks. Within the first 12 to 18 months you can lose a kilogram pro month.
