Weight loss procedure Turkey
Weight loss surgery makes patients feel easily satiated with less food. Your assigned weight loss expert in Istanbul will decide on the best type of bariatric surgery.
The success of all types of bariatric surgeries depend on the following metabolic factors:
- Restriction— reducing the size of the stomach limits how much a patient eats and quickly they become full.
- Hormonal impact— altering the mechanism of hormone production, especially the hormones secreted by the gastrointestinal tract, reduces the feeling of hunger and impact of metabolism, improving or eliminating diabetes and high blood pressure.
- Decreased absorption— in certain procedures, such as the duodenal switch, the treatment helps reduce the amount of food that can enter the stomach and small intestine to limit the number of calories your body absorbs.
Types of weight loss surgery
Our weight loss surgery centers in Turkey provide a comprehensive range of treatment options from the non-surgical weight loss balloon, to extensive surgical procedures such as gastric sleeve and gastric bypass.
Weight loss gastric sleeve in Istanbul is a highly effective treatment for obesity. Gastric sleeve—also known as sleeve gastrectomy, vertical gastric sleeve or gastric sleeve reduction surgery—is a viable option for patients struggling with excess weight and failed to lose weight with traditional methods of diet and exercise. The gastric sleeve weight loss surgery in Turkey is designed to restrict food intake by reducing the size of the stomach.
Bariatric gastric bypass surgery in Turkey has proved effective in treating obesity-related health problems such as Type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea and hypertension. During a gastric bypass surgery, the weight loss surgeon creates a smaller stomach pouch and reattaches it to the lower intestine, resulting in smaller food intake and reduced absorption of calories.

Traveling to Turkey for weight loss surgery
Turkey is one of the top destinations overseas for weight loss. Many UK patients choose Turkey for a weight loss surgery for a variety of reasons. Self-pay is one of the benefits of traveling to Turkey for a bariatric surgery. Patients who travel to Istanbul for weight loss surgery don’t need to get involved in a lengthy and tedious process of getting approved. The ease and convenience of the hospital admission process in Turkey allow patients to schedule their surgery according to their time. Patients in the UK need to wait for up to twelve months to get an approval for a weight loss surgery from a health insurance company. Additionally, if patients fail to meet the surgical criteria, their insurance company might not approve for the surgery.
Bariatric surgery and type2 diabetes
Many patients—with type 2 diabetes—who underwent weight loss surgery saw an 89% remission rate after 3 years of follow-up, according to ObesityWeek.
Bariatric surgery pregnancy
Weight loss can reduce the risks of having babies with larger birth weights and can make for a safer pregnancy.
Patients who have undergone a weight loss surgery are advised to wait at least 12-18 months after surgery to get pregnant. It’s important to discuss your future pregnancy plans with your doctor and care team in the consultation meeting.
Plastic surgeries after weight loss
Losing a significant amount of weight is a grand personal achievement that can give you a confidence boost and earn you compliments from friends and family. While people’s attention and admiration can feel good, you might remain bothered by the excess stretched skin that cannot adjust to the new shape of your body. This is where plastic surgery Turkey comes in.
Undergoing a cosmetic body contouring surgery following weight loss surgery can remove sagging skin and excess fat—improving the shape of the patient and complementing the results of the bariatric surgery. The outcome is a more attractive appearance with smoother contours and less sagging skin and fat.
Our plastic surgeon will choose your cosmetic treatment based on your unique condition and the areas of your body that are most affected by excess skin.
If your abdomen area is affected by sagging, excess and wrinkled skin, an abdominoplasty surgery in Istanbul can be performed, as part of your post weight loss transformation. In abdominoplasty surgery, our plastic surgeons will aptly remove excess skin—tighten underlying abdominal muscles—creating a flat and toned tummy.
Many patients struggling with stubborn pockets of fat after weight loss surgery can benefit from liposuction surgery in Istanbul to lose unwanted volume and reveal a more natural-looking and svelte silhouette.
After major weight loss, many men and women experience sagging skin on the buttocks. Many people—who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their buttocks after weight loss surgery—are looking for a cosmetic procedure to enhance the size and shape of their butt to create a more attractive proportion to their figure.
Weight loss surgery recovery
Depending on the type of bariatric surgery performed, the recovery process may vary. Most weight loss surgeries—with the exception of balloon—are laparoscopic (performed with small incisions). This allows patients to recuperate rapidly. Most patients stay in the hospital from 2 to 3 days—and can return to their normal activities in 3 to 5 weeks.
After gastric bypass surgery, some patients experience a condition known as dumping syndrome. It is a side effect of a weight loss surgery that can occur after gastric bypass surgery, which prevents patients from consuming high-sugar foods. The sugary food can cause nausea, vomiting and weakness.
Cost of weight loss surgery in Turkey
The cost of weight loss surgery in Turkey is relatively inexpensive as opposed to the price of weight loss treatments in UK. The lower cost of living and inexpensive overhead charges make Turkey one of the most affordable weight loss surgery destinations in Europe.
