    Stomach Balloon

    Gastric Balloon is one of the ideal weight loss solutions that minimizes the surgical risk for people who cannot achieve success with traditional weight loss methods (dozens of diet-sports trials, etc.). This medical prosthesis made of silicone material creates a feeling of satiety by providing a mechanical fullness in the stomach and creates volume. Thus, the person does not have difficulty in portion control. In short, the Gastric Balloon offers a safe, effective and personalized solution for weight loss.

    Who May Be a Good Candidate for a Gastric Balloon

    Ideal candidates for the Gastric Balloon procedure are individuals who struggle with obesity and have had limited success with traditional weight loss methods such as diet and exercise. In addition, we can say that people with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 27 and above, individuals who have been obese for the last 5 years, and patients who need to reduce excess weight to reduce surgical risks before weight loss surgery are ideal candidates for the gastric balloon.

    How to Apply?

    The application is performed endoscopically (gastroscopically) under a light sleep state called sedation, not general anesthesia, in a safe procedure that does not exceed 20 minutes in total. Before the procedure, the patient should be in a state of hunger, so it is recommended not to eat anything after midnight the previous day. The patient can be discharged from the hospital with peace of mind after 1-2 hours of observation at the end of the procedure, which ends with the gastroscopic examination of the esophagus and stomach, and then the gastric balloon is placed in the stomach. This application can be used for a period of six months or one year and is removed at the end of the period.

    Advantages of Gastric Balloon

    Gastric Balloon application is not a surgical procedure, which allows the patient to achieve weight loss with a less invasive method. The Gastric Balloon remains in the stomach for a period of six months or 1 year and can be removed optionally. Since it is performed under light sedation during the application, patients can be discharged from the hospital on the same day and does not require a long recovery period. The balloon creates a feeling of fullness in the stomach, helping the individual to maintain portion control. overall, it safely supports the weight loss process, helping patients achieve a healthy body weight. Possible Side Effects In some cases, patients may experience temporary discomfort such as nausea and vomiting in the first few days after Gastric Balloon placement. Patients may also experience mild discomfort in the abdomen after the Gastric Balloon procedure. This is usually short-term and temporary. These benefits and risks may vary depending on the individual's general health, age and lifestyle.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    The aim of sleeve gastrectomy, a fat loss surgery in Turkey, is to reduce the food capacity of the stomach and thus achieve satiety with less food intake; this change in eating habits provides bariatric patients with fast and effective weight loss.

    During surgery, the surgeon makes small incisions in the abdomen and uses specialized instruments, including a laparoscope (a thin, flexible tube with a camera) to access the stomach. The outer part of the stomach is then carefully removed, preserving the natural opening of the stomach known as the pylorus. The remaining part of the stomach is reshaped into a long, narrow tube that resembles the shape of an arm or banana. With the smaller stomach pouch, patients feel full much faster than before surgery. This early satiety helps control food intake, leading to reduced calorie consumption. After the procedure, there may be changes in ghrelin, a hormone that stimulates hunger, leading to a reduced feeling of hunger and an increased feeling of fullness.

    The amount of weight lost by patients after gastric sleeve surgery varies depending on the individual situation of the patients; however, generally, patients who undergo obesity surgery lose 75-80% of their excess weight after weight loss operation.

    Gastric sleeve bariatric surgery is performed by removing 80-85% of the stomach; the reduced size of the stomach changes eating habits and leads to effective weight loss.

    The outer part of the stomach is carefully cut away, leaving behind a smaller, tubular stomach pouch. The remaining edges of the stomach are stapled and closed to form the sheath-shaped pouch. The staples ensure that the newly formed stomach pouch stays in place and heals properly. This helps to maintain normal digestion and nutrient absorption. Once the procedure is complete, the surgeon carefully closes the incisions with sutures or surgical glue.

    Gastric sleeve surgery is performed under general anesthesia; patients do not feel any pain or discomfort during the weight loss procedure by bariatric surgery centers. Patients may feel some discomfort after gastric sleeve surgery, but this is very mild and disappears within a few days.

    Gastric sleeve offers patients painless bariatric surgery with rapid weight loss; it is a very safe weight loss procedure with very effective results. It can also treat obesity-related diseases such as diabetes, heart diseases and high blood pressure.

    Patients are advised to wait at least 12 months to get pregnant after gastric sleeve surgery.

    For the safety of the recovery process, patients stay in the hospital for 3 nights; after discharge, they are recommended to rest for another 3-4 days. Following bariatric surgery in Turkey, a break of approximately one week is recommended.

    It is not recommended to drink coffee after gastric sleeve surgery; patients are usually advised to wait at least one month after surgery to drink coffee. However, your surgeon should be consulted to find out the best time to drink coffee after bariatric surgery.

    Patients can stand up and walk on the day of gastric sleeve surgery.

    Gastric sleeve offers patients very safe and effective medical weight loss procedures; the results are life-changing and the side effects are minimal compared to many other surgical procedures.

    Patients undergoing bariatric surgery lose around 10-20 kg on average with gastric botox; however, with a strong and consistent diet and exercises, this amount can increase up to 30 kg.

    Gastric botox has no serious side effects; some patients may experience nausea, but this is usually very mild and lasts only one to two days after the weight loss procedure.

    The procedure itself takes only 10-15 minutes; the effects of gastric botox last for about 6 months. If needed, the procedure can be repeated after 6 months.

    Gastric Botox requires effort from patients to ensure effective weight loss results; patients should follow a proper nutrition plan and exercise regularly to achieve maximum weight loss with the treatment.
