We had the honour to talk with one of the best plastic surgeons in Istanbul, Dr. Eda. She explained us which surgeries she conducts, how the procedure goes and what one can expect. We talked with her about face-lifts, Brazilian butt lifts, nose corrections and breast enlargements. As it was very useful for us to here all the details from a doctor, we are sure that it will help you in clearing your doubts (and maybe fears) as well.
Gastric sleeve surgery—one of several weight loss treatments— is a restrictive procedure, which means patients lose weight by limiting the amount of food they consume.
Gastric sleeve surgery is also known as tube gastrectomy, vertical sleeve gastrectomy, or laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy.
Gastric sleeve surgery in Turkey is designed to reduce the size of the stomach and help patients lose weight. With a smaller stomach, patients will feel satisfied quicker than they are used to. It should be noted that gastric sleeve surgery is not a cosmetic surgery—and it does not involve removing fatty tissues.
Unlike other weight loss treatments, gastric sleeve does not entail re-routing of the intestines and no change in the ability to absorb calories and nutrients such as iron, vitamin B-12 and calcium.
Most patients report a noticeable decreased in hunger and food craving. The method of weight loss is to decrease in calorie intake.
