Gastric Sleeve Surgery in Antalya


Weight loss surgery in Antalya

Before we talk about Gastric Sleeve Surgery in Antalya , it is better to know a little about obesity first. Obesity is one of the biggest problems of the new age, with every 39 of 100 people suffering from obesity. The fast-food culture made the most contribution to the obesity rates because they are full of calories and make you feel full just for a short time. This way, you get hungry soon and eat another one.

Also, technological advancements such as cars, elevators, escalators, machinery for every kind of job made people less active and obesity rates have gradually increased. It is not a innocent overweight problem, it can be deadly most of the time.

Obesity limits the capability of move of a person and that reincurs obesity in a loop. It makes one socially resistant and insecure.

What follows is self-accusation for being obese and this can even cause suicides among people. The observations show that %33 of females and %13 of males who suffer from obesity showed suicidal behaviours.

Luckily, with the advancements of science and medicine, we have effective solutions for obesity today. These includes bariatric surgery types such as gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, gastric band, gastric stapling and gastric balloon.

With these operations, one can lose weight and go back to a healthy life in a short time if they can find an experienced surgeon with years of experience. In Medgol, our experienced surgeons carry out these operations with the latest technology.

Among these bariatric surgeries, the most important and effective one is gastric sleeve surgery, let’s learn about the other types of surgeries in short and dive into our ultimate guide about gastric sleeve surgery in detail.

What is bariatric surgery in Antalya and what are some types of bariatric surgeries?

Gastric bypass or gastric Roux-en-Y anastomosis

Anastomosis is a medical procedure where two body parts containing fluids are connected differently than their original position. It can be used to treat many issues such as gastric problems and pancreas problems. However, in bariatrics, it means to staple the upper part of the stomach to create a little pouch and then connecting it to directly small intestine. This way, bottom part of the stomach is bypassed. This allows less food into the stomach and lessens the absorption of calories in general by also lessening the size of the stomach. Note that this process does not include any removal of the stomach.

Intragastric balloon

In this procedure, our experienced surgeons place a balloon without air into the stomach and inflated inside to decrease the size of the stomach. It does not stay there permanently or more than six months but it helps you lose weight of 5-9 Body Mass Index. Our surgeons with years of experience does not recommend this method alone but they operate it on over-obese patients to prepare their body for other bariatric surgeries such as gastric bypass.

Laparoscopic adjustable gastric band

This is another type of weight loss surgery Antalya. In this procedure, our experienced surgeons laparoscopically place an adjustable gastric band on top of your stomach creating a little pouch and decreasing food intake and capacity. This process helps you lose weight and it is adjustable because there is a port from where a fluid can be injected into a balloon near the gastric band which can increase or decrease the tightness of the gastric band.

Vertical banded gastroplasty (gastric stapling)

Surgeons with years of experience in Medgol staple your stomach in this bariatric surgery and decrease the size of the stomach. This way, your food intake will decrease and you will lose weight. Also, your hunger hormones are less produced by time as you decrease your food intake.

Stomach Folding

This operation is somehow similar to gastric sleeve surgery in Antalya in that it decreases the size of the stomach. However, stomach folding does not include any removal of the stomach. It just sutures the stomach in a way to decrease its food capacity without decreasing its nutrient absorption capabilities. After the surgery, you need smaller amounts of food to reach satiety.

Endoluminal Sleeve

This operation is the placement of a flexible tube into the small intestine through mouth and stomach. It blocks the absorption of certain types of foods and calories to help lose weight. Patients report that it helps lose 5.5 Body Mass Index in 3 months. However, recent studies have found various problem with the process and its efficiency is doubtful despite the lower risks of infection thanks to involving no removal of the stomach.

Implantable Gastric Stimulation

This gastric surgery involves the placement of a heart-like pulse creating device that regularly stimulates the external parts of the stomach to create an artificial sense of satiety. It helps lose weight by this sense because patients feel fuller and eat less thanks to the less production of ghrelin hormone, also known as hunger hormone.

Tummy Tuck Surgery (Abdominoplasty)

Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is a cosmetic surgical operation that improves the shape and appearance of the abdomen. Excess skin and fat are removed from the abdomen during a tummy tuck. Sutures are frequently used to tighten connective tissue in the abdomen (fascia). The leftover skin after tummy tuck is then relocated to give the appearance of a more toned appearance.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery in Antalya (Sleeve Gastrectomy)

Gastric sleeve surgery in Antalya is the most effective obesity surgery and it helps remove the side effect of obesity that cause health problems. In this surgical procedure, our experienced surgeons laparoscopically cut around %80 of your stomach and take it out. The result is splendid with around losing %70 of your excess weights within a year. Also, it is minimally invasive and the wounds heal and disappear over time. So, it is a very popular weight loss surgery Turkey.

Long instruments, telescopes, and a good self-retention liver retractor should all be on hand.

Also, before the gastric sleeve surgery, patients need to follow a certain guideline to have the maximum performance from the operation.

Is Antalya or Istanbul the best option for gastric sleeve operation?

Gastric sleeve surgery in Turkey is mostly carried out in two big cities of Turkey, Antalya and Istanbul because this procedure needs years of experience.

These two cities have the most experienced surgeons of Turkey so people are trying to make a decision about one of these cities. Our guide will help you make the best decision comparing many aspects of these two beautiful cities of Turkey.

First of all, both cities implement the weight loss surgery Turkey operations pretty well but Antalya has some outstanding advantages in terms of experience and hospitals over gastric sleeve Turkey Istanbul when it comes to gastric sleeve surgery.

Secondly, Istanbul is the biggest city in Turkey overpopulation is a big problem in this metropolitan city, even the transfer times between your hospital and your accommodation may be a challenge of great magnitude because of the age-long traffic problem in Istanbul.

Istanbul has a total population of 15.5 million people and this causes extremely long traffic jams which won’t move sometimes for hours. Some hospitals report that their patients frequently be late for the surgeries if they are not housed in the hospitals before the gastric sleeve surgery in Istanbul.

On the contrary, Antalya has a population of 2.5 million people and there are no problems such as traffic jams. You can go to your hospital and follow your surgeon’s advices thoroughly without hardships as fast as possible, which will minimize the stress that can otherwise adversely affect your weight loss surgery Turkey.

Another positive point of bariatric surgery in Antalya is again related to transportation, the Antalya Airport. Antalya Airport runs orderly in a flow that can easily be used to and you will receive free plane tickets, airport pickups along with free accommodation and your surgery costs for affordable prices if you consider Medgol’s exclusive packages shown at the bottom of this page.

Istanbul, on the contrary, has one of the largest airports in Europe and can be highly chaotic from time to time. The organization problem frequently occurs again due to the overcrowd of people from all around the world.

Also, Antalya has a hot, summer climate with a golden sunshine all year long and even during the winters, weather is calm and mild.

You will enjoy the beautiful beaches in Antalya during your bariatric operation period along with natural beauties such as green forests where you can go hiking or camping.

In Istanbul, on the other hand, temperatures go as cold as -10°C. So, it is wise to state that Antalya is much more preferable for someone who suffers from obesity because hard weather conditions make it harder for overweight people to act.

Gastric sleeve operation in Turkey is more affordable and reasonable to receive in Antalya because everything, from gift shops to restaurants, everything is much more budget-friendly compared to Istanbul. You can say that an average daily cost is half of it would cost in Istanbul.

Another reason for choosing Antalya is the clear and clean air due to its huge woodlands and pine forests. The clean air helps you recover easier and faster in most conditions because of the high-capacity lungs.

You will feel a sense of rebirth after breathing the air of Antalya during your gastric sleeve surgery in Antalya. This is both because of the forests and the absence of heavy industry in Antalya is a tourism city unlike Istanbul’s huge industry.

Istanbul is surely a wonderful place worth seeing and it is one of the rarest riches of Turkey but for a medical tourist, it can become a challenge in the long traffic jams trying to reach to the hospitals for gastric sleeve surgery in Istanbul.


After bariatric surgery, you should lose 30 percent of excess fat within the first three months. This is a good result. After a year, the excess fat will be reduced by more than half.
It is important to avoid red meat that is tough or dry, as well as foods that are grease-filled and high in fat also Savory or spicy foods and Sugar alcohols.
Weight loss surgery can be performed at any age based on the individual’s overall health and unique needs. The optimal age for bariatric surgery is under 40.
If you wish to drink alcohol after surgery, wait until you have been given permission to do so. Alcohol after surgery can cause low blood sugar and intoxication.
Dietary restrictions and decreased appetite are the most challenging aspects of bariatric surgery. Your dietitian can help you improve your recovery.
The quality of your life will improve, but you should be aware that weight-loss surgery doesn’t cure obesity, but it can help you lose weight. A healthy lifestyle will help you maintain your weight.
There are several studies that have shown that bariatric surgery does significantly reduce mortality risk. The adverse effects of obesity are definitely more than those of bariatric surgery.
People who eat a lot after surgery are prone to developing dumping syndrome, which can cause symptoms such as abdominal pain, crumps, and feeling full.
you should avoid drinking any product of caffeine like coffee, tea and etc for at least 45 days after bariatric surgery.
Because your stomach cannot digest a whole meal, a liquid diet is the best diet after bariatric surgery. Six small meals can be eaten throughout the day.
