Gastric Bypass Surgery

There are many obesity surgery procedures (e.g. gastric balloon, gastric banding) – each with different advantages and disadvantages. The aim of all of them is to overcome obesity and to continuously relieve physical impairments. In addition, with the help of professional gastric operations, an inner balance of the patient is to be adjusted, which helps to eliminate psychosocial stressors and to create a controlled personal well-being. 

The gastro-operative bypass techniques, which we also offer in Turkey, help to reduce the intake of fats and carbohydrates to such an extent that you can permanently minimize your weight. In general, the following types of gastric bypass techniques are differentiated by our Büyük Anadolu Team in Samsun:

  • Gastric bypass
  • Mini bypass or omega bypass
  • Duodenal Switch
  • Biliopancreatic Diversion

The gastric bypass is a bypass technique that is the most commonly used surgical procedure in Turkey and other countries. However, it is also the most complex gastric surgery. For gastric bypass, a specialist surgeon reduces the size of the stomach so that it only holds about 15-20 ml. The remaining stomach is then sutured with a deeper small intestine loop so that the duodenum is excluded from digestion. This is also known as a bypass. Due to the exclusion of the duodenum, food and digestive juices, i.e. the secretions responsible for enzymatic cleavage, are only mixed in the middle small intestine. This is the primary reason why calorie intake is lower. We at Büyük Anadolu inSamsun are your personal contact for questions concerning gastric bypass, balanced diet and exercise (including professional nutrition and sports plans). We are always glad to advise you in detail. Just contact us or send us an e-mail.

As with any other surgical procedure, our specialists in Turkey must discuss all important key data with you in advance. In addition, it is incredibly important to Aesthetic Travel to advise you comprehensively so that you feel comfortable and safe during your treatment and during your entire stay with us. In addition, our surgical team of doctors will give you a general anamnesis so that any complications can be largely excluded.

In general, those suffering from obesity – i.e. with at least a body mass index (BMI) of 40 (40 kg/m2) or severe physical deficits at a BMI value of 35 – especially over a longer period – may undergo bariatric surgery for health reasons.

Above all, a restrictive intervention should be carefully considered, as it cannot be reversed afterwards. Everyone must be aware that this is an anatomical change that will last a lifetime. However, a qualitative improvement in the quality of life is also guaranteed, as you will definitely gradually lose weight! It is also important to mention that especially with a gastric bypass not only the calorie and fat intake is reduced, but also the intake and absorption of nutrients is significantly reduced. This means that a deficiency may occur without additional intake of dietary supplements. Do you have any questions? – No problem. Contact your Büyük Anadolu team.
