Having had her revision rhinoplasty in December 2015, N.A from London, has decided to benefit from FlyHealth services one more time in order to get rid of her excessive weight. In comparison to Greece and Kuwait, gastric sleeve in Istanbul offered the most convenient package both in terms of quality and affordability.
Regular pre operation tests were a bit more than, her previous cosmetic surgery operation and took 2 full days in hospital. Total blood count; glucose, urea, Kreatinin, AST, ALT, GGT, Cardiology Assessment (ECG & echocardiography) and many more tests were completed in two full days. For this reason Istanbul stay of the patient had to be fourteen days. She has tried to get all her tests done in London however, there was a waiting list and not all the tests were available unlike in Istanbul.
During in person consultation, first thing she wanted to know was expected weight loss from the gastric sleeve surgery in Istanbul. During in person consultation it was explained to her that the answer changes for every patient.
“If you follow the guidelines, change bad habits, replace them with new healthy habits, then you can expect to lose more than 60% of your excess weight.”Ultimately, success from gastric sleeve surgery comes from setting the proper expectations, making a decision to change your habits and sticking to that decision.” Said FlyHealth surgeon.
Her operation was performed by our Prof Dr. Halil Alış in Istanbul. He has performed over 4,000 sleeve operations in his professional life. her stomach size is reduced to 15 percent of the original size to help her lose weight. Surgeon actually removed 80 to 85 percent of her stomach used the remaining portion of her stomach to make a tube-shaped sleeve that goes from the esophagus to her small intestine. After the procedure in Istanbul, the size of her sleeve was only 15 to 20 percent of the original size of her stomach. Finally, the surgeon stitches closed the sleeve in her stomach and uses a sealant to prevent leaks.
