Weight Loss Surgery Options

When it comes to bariatric surgery, one size doesn’t necessarily fit all That’s why there are plenty of options to suit your needs.

Most patients look for a permanent change with a high rate of success. For people in this position, two options stand out: gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy

What is bariatric surgery?

 

Bariatric surgery defines a group of surgical interventions which help people lose weight, induce remission of obesity-related diseases, and improve quality of life. A major goal of different bariatric surgeries is the reduction of excess body fat and improvement or remission of co-existing medical conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, sleep apnoea, osteoarthritis etc.

Bariatric procedures are classified as either restrictive or malabsorptive. Restrictive procedures limit intake by creating a small gastric reservoir with a narrow outlet in order to delay emptying. Malabsorptive procedures include excising portions of small intestine where nutrient absorption occurs.
Most popular bariatric surgeries to this date are:

* Gastric bypass (Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, banded gastric bypass, mini gastric bypass)
* Gastric sleeve

Why would someone need bariatric surgery?

 

Obesity is a complex medical condition associated with a great variety of complications which affect most organs through different pathways. There is now considerable evidence that intentional weight loss due to bariatric surgery is linked to clinically relevant benefits for the majority of these health issues.
* 
First of all, significant weight loss has a positive impact on one’s blood pressure, notably improves cardiac function and reduces risk of cardiovascular events. 

Moreover, it is consistently associated with a clinically relevant reduction in triglycerides and increase in HDL cholesterol, also known as “good” cholesterol.



Metabolic surgery may be particularly suitable for patients with type 2 diabetes, as these patients may benefit from improved glycaemic control compared to patients treated with medications alone. 

In addition, obesity is widely recognized as a key modifiable risk factor for osteoarthritis, with significant improvements in pain and function reported with weight loss.



Obstructive sleep apnoea and obesity hypoventilation syndrome tend to improve even when a moderate amount of weight is lost.

It is worth mentioning that sustained weight loss seems to be associated with a significant improvement in asthma symptoms, too. 

Last but not least, several studies suggest that long-term weight loss not only improves health-related quality of life, but also has a very positive effect on a patient’s self-esteem and so a more positive self-image can be built

What should one expect after bariatric surgery?

successful weight-loss outcome after bariatric surgery has been defined as a loss of at least 50% of excess weight. Significant weight loss is achieved as caloric intake is reduced by modifying the anatomy of the gastrointestinal tract. However, patients undergoing bariatric surgery often believe they will lose more weight than is consistent with clinical experience and may think that minimal personal effort or risk is involved. Studies have shown that failure to maintain weight loss at 10 years after bariatric surgery has been observed in 10% to 25% of patients who undergo this intervention. The major contributor to poor long-term outcome is non-adherence to dietary and activity recommendations. To assess motivation and predict compliance to postsurgical recommendations, it is advised for patients to lose some weight before surgery. Moreover, psychotropic medications, such as antidepressants, are considered to very likely promote weight gain in post-operative patients.

 

How to prepare for bariatric surgery?

Right preparation for bariatric surgery is a vital part of the procedure itself as it determines the success of the operation and the quality of recovery after it.
*

Practice healthy lifestyle. Exercising regularly, having your diet balanced and staying hydrated will strengthen your body and recovery after the surgery will be faster.

Avoid using tobacco products and consuming alcohol at least 1 month before the procedure.

In order to prevent perioperative complications, taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and other blood thinners should be avoided at least 2 weeks before the procedure, unless the operating doctor has advised otherwise.

Consult the surgeon about your allergies, previous surgeries and daily medications. If you have any pre-existing conditions that require daily usage of drugs, your operating doctor should be informed about it.

Follow your specific pre-operative instructions as they may vary depending on your personal medical history.
When weight loss surgery doesn’t work. Possible reasons
Although bariatric surgery is often recommended as an effective treatment for severe obesity, there is still variability in outcome. There are 3 most commonly observed factors that might adversely affect the results of a bariatric procedure: binge eating, lowered energy metabolism, and psychosocial functioning

Lifestyle changes after bariatric surgery.

As effective as bariatric procedures are, surgical approach is just a small step forward for more balanced body proportions. Many post-operative adjustments to eating behaviour and daily physical activity routine are needed for successful weight loss and prevention of complications after surgery.


Food
Patients should follow prescribed serving sizes to avoid overeating. Food should be well-chewed and consumed very slowly. Liquids should not be consumed with solid foods.

Supplements
Moreover, frequent monitoring of nutritional status and additional supplementation, as needed, can aid in preventing severe clinical deficiencies

Activity
Physical activity plays an essential role in weight loss maintenance after a dietary intervention. Several weight loss studies have shown a clear dose response between physical activity and prevention of weight regain.

Patient review

I travelled to see Dr Tuna Bilecik to perform my gastric sleeve surgery mid October. Luckily for me Rachel Kibble managed to get me in pretty much immediately so I could not change my mind as I had so many times before. When you discuss travelling abroad to have surgery everybody has a point of view which in my case really clouded my decision making.
As I had 24 hours to get prepared worked in my favour and I was on the plane before I knew it. My surgery went well and I was up and about on the same day. Dr Tuna is amazing as are his team. If you are thinking about this life changing surgery my advice is DO ITI Don't let others make the decision about YOUR future! Do it for YOU

Patient review

I found Dr Tuna and Rachel after much research, Mediterranean Weight Loss Clinic was the only place that ticked all of my boxes! As a qualified Nurse in the UK I had quite a strict criteria. I travelled from the UK and found Dr Tuna and his team to be extremely caring and meticulous. Rachel is an excellent coordinator and had been able to advise every step of the way.
The hospital is clean and you are well looked after. I am two weeks post op sleeve gastrectomy and my recovery has been amazing. If you are looking for individualised care where you are not just a number then please contact Mediterranean Weight Loss Clinic you will not regret it 5 star review all round.

Patient review

I had VSG with Dr Tuna in January 2020 and then a tummy tuck and lipo in November 2020. I went back to Dr Tuna because I trusted him and felt that I was in safe hands. I saw my tummy tuck as reconstructive after a weight loss and was happy for just a 'be result. OMG I have never seen a tummy tuck better than mine. Dr Tuna is a magician.

Patient review

I went to Turkey in September. The entire way I was guided my Rachel and she was my absolute angel. She takes each and every patient and makes sure you're well and helps to problem solved the whole way. Dr Tuna and his staff at the hospital are second to none. I wouldn't hesitate recommending them to my friends and family and I intend to go back next August for further surgery.

Patient review

I was recommended to this clinic and so glad I found it. The support and guidance from Rachel is absolutely top class and that's before I had even got on the plane! Dr Tuna and his staff are equally knowledgeable and professional. The support at home has been just as good. The patient support group is also superb with both Rachel and Dr Tuna on there as well. They don't over operate or overbook and that shows in the care you receive both pre and post op. They are an amazing team and excel at what they do. Highly recommend.
