Stomach reduction is a surgical operation to provide permanent slimming for people who cannot lose weight with other slimming ways like diet, sports.
Obesity surgery is suitable for a person;
- Doing a diet and exercise for a long time under the control of a doctor and a dietician cannot lose weight,
- Whose body mass index greater than 40,
- Whose body mass index greater than 35 and with hypertension, sugar.
Stomach balloon is one of the methods used to treat obesity. Balloon is placed in the stomach of the patient with gastroscopy and then inflated with physiological saline solution which is put into the stomach. The amount of serum can be increased or decreased according to the patient’s needs. The placed balloon can move freely within the stomach.
But gastric balloon therapy is not permanent. According to the needs of the patient can stay in the stomach for 6-12 months and then must be removed from the stomach. Because the balloon gives a feeling of fullness in the stomach and fills the stomach, the patient cannot eat much. In this process, with a healthy and balanced diet and the help of a dietician patient lose weight. The patient’s eating habits are corrected until the balloon is removed, and after the balloon is removed, the patient continues to lose weight if he continues to eat according to diet.
The biggest advantage of sleeve gastrectomy is that no changes are made in the natural functioning of the digestive system. Obesity related diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, sleep apnea are reduced by up to 80% by tube gastric therapy.
Stomach treatment does not change stomach functions, only the stomach volume is reduced so patients can consume any type of food, albeit in small amounts.
After the treatment 75% of the stomach wall is removed, so the production of the ghrelin hormone, which creates a feeling of hunger is greatly minimized, thereby the patient’s sense of hunger reduces.
Lack of vitamins and minerals after tube gastric surgery is much less than other obesity surgeries.
Minimal gastric bypass operation reduces both gastric volume and absorption of nutrients. Mini gastric bypass is very effective in the treatment of hypertension and diabetes.
The difference of R-Y gastric bypass from the mini-gastric bypass is a bile deflector connection that prevents bile reflux. As the stomach is minimized, the nutrients taken are reduced and the absorption of the nutrients is reduced by bypass. Thus, the patient can lose weight quickly after surgery.
