Obesity Surgery


What is obesity?

Obesity is a condition observed in individuals with an excess of body fat, and it is considered obesity when the body mass index (BMI) is 30 or higher. The body mass index is calculated by dividing weight by height.

Obesity has become a prevalent issue in today’s society, leading to the widespread preference for obesity surgeries to address this problem. Obesity surgeries generally aim to achieve weight loss by reducing stomach volume or altering the digestive system.

How is Obesity Surgery Performed and Who is Eligible?

Obesity surgery is a surgical procedure that reduces the volume of the stomach or changes the functioning of the digestive system to facilitate weight loss.

Obesity surgery is applied to individuals who are extremely obese, often experiencing diseases such as diabetes, sleep apnea, and hypertension due to obesity. After the obesity surgery process, the individual’s discomforts related to obesity disappear, and the quality of life improves.

To determine whether you are eligible for obesity surgery, it is essential to consult with your doctor. You can participate in our free consultation meeting to assess your eligibility.

Benefits of Obesity Surgery


Obesity surgery has numerous benefits. The main advantages include:

  • Facilitates weight loss.
  • Treats diseases associated with obesity.
  • Improves the quality of life.
  • Boosts self-confidence in life.

Types of Obesity Surgery

The types of obesity surgeries applied depend on the individual’s condition and the procedure the doctor will perform. The most commonly performed obesity surgeries include:

Gastric Sleeve Surgery: Involves the removal of a part of the stomach, reducing its volume and decreasing the secretion of hunger hormones, resulting in the individual consuming less food.

Gastric Bypass Surgery: Involves removing a part of the stomach and altering the working pathway of the intestines. The stomach redirects to the lower part of the intestines, leading to less digestion and lower calorie intake.

Gastric Balloon: Involves placing a balloon inside the stomach. The balloon fills the stomach, creating a feeling of fullness, and over time, it contributes to weight loss. Since the gastric balloon procedure is non-surgical, it generally carries lower risks.

Obesity surgeries are personalized treatment methods that are decided based on the evaluation of risks and benefits according to the individual’s condition.

To determine if you are a suitable candidate for obesity surgery, it is crucial to undergo a medical examination with your doctor. You can join our free consultation meeting to assess your eligibility.

Risks of Obesity Surgery


General Surgical Risks: Such as infection, bleeding, and anesthesia-related issues.

Nutrition Issues: Problems with nutrient absorption, vitamin, and mineral deficiencies.

Weight Loss Rate Issues: Negative effects of excessively rapid weight loss on the body.

Psychological and Emotional Effects: Emotional issues, changes in body image, difficulties related to eating habits.

After Obesity Surgery

In the postoperative period, individuals experience changes in their lifestyle. Adapting to this new lifestyle is essential. Rapid weight loss can lead to sagging skin and nutrient deficiencies. Therefore, dietary supplements, regular exercise, and psychological support are recommended. Patients should maintain regular communication with their surgeons or dietitians and sustain healthy habits.
