About Bariatric Surgeon

Bariatric surgeon is a doctor specialised in performing weight loss surgeries in the stomach or intestine. Surgeries performed by a bariatric surgeon helps a person with extreme obesity or overweight lose weight. They do so by performing condition specific surgeries on the stomach and/or intestine. These types of surgeries are usually an option for people with a body mass index (BMI) over 40 who have associated health issues like type 2 diabetes or heart disease.

Bariatric surgeons usually perform two basic types of surgeries namely- restrictive surgeries and malabsorptive surgeries. While restrictive surgeries involve restricting the size of the stomach and slowing down digestion, malabsorptive surgeries are more invasive in nature and are performed by removing parts of the digestive tracts that leads to interfering with the absorption of the calories.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which are the most popular procedures performed by Weight Loss Surgeon in Turkey?

Bariatric surgeries (weight loss surgeries) are an effective choice for weight loss in people who are obese, and conventional weight-loss strategies, such as diet and exercise, have failed at the same time.

Gastric Bypass- In gastric bypass surgery, the surgeon closes most of the stomach leaving a small pouch and connects that small pouch to the middle of the small intestine, It allows food to move through a large portion of the stomach and much of the first half of the small intestine directly from your stomach to your intestine.

Gastric Sleeve- Gastric sleeve, also known as sleeve gastrectomy, is a surgical procedure in which the stomach is reduced into a thin sleeve-like tube by isolating and closing most of the stomach by the surgeon, leaving just a small portion of the stomach.

Stomach Balloon- A special balloon filled with liquid material is also known as a gastric balloon. By endoscopy, this balloon is inserted into the stomach, which is a thin tube that passes through the mouth and esophagus to enter the stomach and leave the balloon there. The balloon settles for around 6 months in the stomach, reducing the size of the stomach available for food, and this limits the amount of food you can consume until you feel full.

Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band- Two components are created via a gastric band that is positioned around the upper part of the stomach: the first and the main stomach. Thus, it is possible to minimize both the volume of food as well as the caloric supply. Your specialist surgeon in Turkey performs this minimally invasive operation laparoscopically and using the keyhole surgical system. It would be possible to lose up to 1⁄2 kilograms each week with sufficient dietary changes and with some discipline.
