Our Aesthetic-Travel team in Antalya generally differentiates between the following types of gastric bypass techniques:
Gastric bypass in Turkey is the bypass technique that is most commonly used in Turkey and other countries. However, it is also the most complex gastric surgery in Turkey. In gastric bypass, the stomach is reduced in size by a specialised surgeon so that it only holds around 15-20 ml. The remaining stomach is then sutured to a deeper loop of small intestine so that the duodenum is excluded from digestion.
This is also known professionally as a bypass. Due to the exclusion of the duodenum, food and digestive juices, i.e. the secretions responsible for enzymatic breakdown, are only mixed in the middle small intestine. This is the primary reason for the lower calorie intake.

With a gastric bypass operation a part of the stomach will be separated and only a small part will remain. The small intestine will also be cut. One end will be connected to the active part of the stomach, the other end will be diverted, so the nutrients will be merged in the middle of the small intestines.With this method not all components of the nourishment can be resolved and this food residue will be moved to the large intestine. Thanks to this diversion the gastrointestinal tract can absorb less. A feeling of satiety is achieved earlier. Beside of this you can eat less.
A gastric bypass operation takes normally between 90 and 150 minutes. The operation will be performed under general anaesthetic. Medical prevention and rehabilitation will take about a week in the hospital. Patients will be incapable of working for 2 to 3 weeks.
The operation for a gastric bypass will be performed as a keyhole surgery. This means, it will be made several about 2 cms large cuts in the skin. The needed camera and instruments will be inserted here. First a part of the stomach will be severed with a stapler. After this the small intestine will be cut and the lower end will sew to the active part of the stomach. The upper end will sew to the third part of the small intestine and will form a Y.
This surgery is adequate for people with a BMI over 40. If you also suffer from diabetes, hypertension or sleep apnoea an operation is advised with a BMI of 35. However, this operation is only when you have tried all non-operative measures like movement training or nutrition consultation without success for at least six to twelve months.
This is especially advisable as a surgery for people with an excessive consumption of high-calorie foods like sweets or extra fat food and having severe overweight.
It has been proved that a gastric bypass operation achieved very good long-term results. Averagely can be a loss of weight from 65 to 70 percent be achieved.
With the change of the whole physiology of the digestion it is possible that the body will not absorb enough vitamins and it will be necessary to take multivitamins. Furthermore, it can come to flatulence and diarrhoea, less common to circulatory problems after taking sugary foods or drinks. Over time the effect of the small stomach can lessen and larger amounts of food can be consumed.
Within the first six months after the surgery it is advisable not to drink any alcohol. It can lead to an unpleasant feeling of pressure. At this time a complete blood count should be made and the vitamin balance checked to avoid long-term deficiencies. The nourishment should have been changed and the body is to be observed. Too much fat will result in strong perspiration or cause general discomfort and should be avoided. Principally it is recommendable to get the help of a dietary adviser to make sure the diet is adjusted.
With Aesthetic-Travel you don’t have any additional costs. All our prices are inclusive prices.
Enlargement of the pouch is extremely rare in gastric bypass surgery. In the case of a gastric sleeve, on the other hand, there can be a dilatation, an enlargement or stretching of the rest of the stomach. This expansion can be triggered by continued dietary errors, for example when a patient does not follow the instructions of the nutritionist advising him postoperatively and eats uncontrollably.
It is usually not necessary to take medication after the procedure. After the operation, however, the body must be given lifelong multivitamin preparations to prevent deficiency symptoms and to replace missing vitamins and minerals. Since you have to bear the costs yourself, we would be happy to advise you on cost-effective options.
If you are very overweight, such an operation may be necessary after bariatric surgery. You can always clarify more details in the follow-up appointments with your treating doctors. To learn more about plastic surgery in Turkey, you can visit our page.
