Gastric Balloon Procedure

Gastric Balloon Procedure Obesity can turn into a serious problem if it remains untreated. In fact, millions of people are suffering from this disease and it is only right to contact a doctor to check for the possible solutions, especially when exercising and diets fail to so the trick. Therefore, other weight loss methods come into play. Having a consultation should be helpful. It will determine which surgical method is best for you.

Whose decision is it?

Before any medical intervention, your case should be assessed through a full diagnosis given by the doctor. That means that the decision is taken by your doctor, because it’s a case by case choice. To make things easier, most medical centers in Turkey offer free consultations at first. That way, the patient will get a first diagnosis and have the opportunity to ask for further details. In other words, the most perfect weight loss surgery depends on your current state of health and your body type. In fact, patients which type of surgery they will want to have when they finish their first appointment/consultation. As an example, we can mention ClinicExpert.

Whether it’s a Gastric sleeve, Gastric bypass or a Gastric balloon procedure, the results are guaranteed. However, the patient should bear in mind that he has to comply with the doctor’s instructions after the surgery in order to get the best out of the procedure he has to undergo.

Types of weight loss procedures and the projected results of each one of them

Gastric sleeve procedure

In this procedure, the surgeon takes a portion of the patient’s stomach leaving it the size of a banana. Note that this surgery takes 60 to 90 minutes.

The way the surgery is done:

  • 2 to 4 incisions in the patient’s belly.
  • Insertion of the instruments that are needed to perform the surgery through those cuts.
  • A gas is pumped inside the stomach (helps with creating enough room for the surgeon to perform the surgery comfortably)
  • Removal of a portion of the stomach.
  • The rest is then turned into a banana-shaped stomach.
  • The instruments used in the surgery are removed and the patient will finally get stitched.

Gastric balloon procedure

A very popular choice for weight loss. In this procedure, a balloon is put inside the stomach in order to decrease the quantity of consumables the patient used to take. The balloon will give the patient a sense of a half-full stomach. It is important to note that the balloon does not stay permanently.

The way the surgery is done:

  • A silicone balloon is put inside the stomach with an endoscope.
  • When the balloon is safely placed in the stomach, it is filled with saline (saltwater).
  • This procedure is incisionless. This explains why it is a very popular solution for obesity.

Gastric bypass procedure:

It consists of shrinking your stomach size to restrict the amount of food you used to take. In other words the digestive system will be re-routed in order to lessen the absorption of nutritional elements.

The way the surgery is done:

  • A small cut in the belly
  • The surgeon makes a small stomach pouch by stapling part of the stomach together or by vertical banding.
  • the surgeon attaches a Y-shaped section of the small intestine to the pouch.
  • The patient gets stitched.

Projected results:

Each of the bariatric operations has a different amount of total body weight that a patient can expect to lose within 12-18 months after surgery.

  • Up to 30 percent with a gastric sleeve procedure.
  • to 35 percent with a gastric bypass procedure.
  • to 20 percent with a gastric balloon procedure.

Note: If we take a look at the Middle East, we will notice that none of the Middle Eastern countries could achieve balance between tourism and health services like turkey did. It has become the main magnet that draws tourists’ and health service seekers’ attention. That’s due to the reliable and affordable services both tourists and patients have been receiving over the years.

Why turkey?

Health sector in Turkey

Focusing on the health sector, specifically on weight loss procedures (such as gastric balloon procedure), turkey has been a leader in the field. It is important to note that, according to recent studies, the number of people who came to Turkey for medical purposes in 2019 is 8 percent higher than in 2018. This can be considered as a pretty high increase, which reflects the flexibility, reliability and affordability of Turkeys’ health services.

In addition, weight loss procedures require good medical staffs and modern equipment, which has been one of Turkey’s main focuses. Indeed, Turkey succeeded in fulfilling these needs and requirements to form one of the most desired places in terms of plastic surgery. To illustrate, it is safe to say that the market in turkey can be compared to traffic during a rush hour. It is full of competition and the prices are so affordable that you can hardly make a choice.

In this regard, lots of questions may come across your mind as to how you should decide which type of bariatric surgery you will undergo (Gastric balloon procedure, Gastric sleeve procedure, Gastric bypass.)
