Liposuction vs. Gastric Sleeve, Which One Should You Get?

Obesity is becoming an uncontrollable epidemic. Men and women both fear obesity and constantly take measures that prevent them from getting fat. However, because of numerous factors, sometimes it becomes difficult for people to lose fat that has appears on their body. While most of the people want to lose fat for cosmetic purposes, it is more important to address the fat on your body for the sake of your health. Many health problems occur amongst people who are struggling to keep fat off their body.

Luckily, some surgical procedures can be undergone in case you find yourself constantly failing to remove excess fat from your body. Two of these procedures which we will be discussing in this article are; Liposuction Turkey and Gastric Sleeve Turkey.


Liposuction Turkey is a purely cosmetic procedure that is performed to remove the excess fat from different parts of the body. By making small incisions on the different body parts, suction is used to remove the fat. This method hence cannot be seen as a long-term solution and is rather termed as an instant gratification method. Moreover, the cause of the buildup of fat in such a method is not addressed which is why if you are looking for a weight loss strategy, it is not recommended to go for liposuction instead; it is suggested to go for gastric sleeve surgery.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery

The gastric sleeve Turkey, on the other hand, gives notice to the cause of the excessive buildup of fat and steps are taken to help the client get rid of this fat permanently. There is also a particular diet plan that needs to be followed after having the procedure done. As a result of a gastric sleeve surgery, many major health problems such as hypertension and high cholesterol are also successfully treated. Moreover, you will find your eating habits to significantly change after this procedure which will help you maintain your weight loss.


 If you’re planning to go under the knife to reduce excess weight, then first check your BMI (body mass index). Below are typical categories for your BMI number.

<16.0Extremely underweight
16.0 to 16.9Severely underweight
17.0 to 18.4Underweight
18.5 to 24.9Normal weight
25.0 to 29.9Overweight
30.0 to 34.9Obesity (Class 1)
35.0 to 39.9Obesity (Class 2)
>= 40Morbid Obesity

So, going by this table, only those with excess body fat usually opt for these weight reduction surgeries.

It is only suggested to go under the knife only if you fall under the Obesity (class 2) and Morbid obesity categories. The Overweight and Obesity (class 1) individuals can easily lose those few extra kilos by following a healthy low carb high protein diet and some easy weight loss exercises.

 There is no real winner

If you are looking for ways to readily get rid of fat accumulated on multiple parts of your body, having liposuction done is your solution. However, if you want to address your weight problem completely, it is recommended to opt for a Gastric sleeve surgery as it will help you treat all the serious health conditions related to the weight gain as well. As mentioned you need to be at certain BMI value for this operation. Excessive weight can be a serious threat to your whole body which needs proper care and attention. Thus, gastric sleeve surgery can be seen as an effective long-term solution whereas liposuction can be undergone if you are looking for cosmetic changes on your body.
