What is the gastric sleeve procedure?

A gastric sleeve bariatric surgical procedure is performed for patients with morbid obesity. A bariatric surgeon will remove a large portion of the stomach of patients and leave a portion of the stomach in the form of a pouch. This pouch looks like a sleeve or tube.

Is it safe to have a gastric sleeve?

The gastric sleeve bariatric surgical procedure is one of the safest among bariatric surgical procedures. There are fewer complications compared to other procedures. In rare cases requires a revision gastric sleeve procedure may need to be performed.

What should you eat after gastric sleeve surgery?

A healthy liquid diet without caffeinated and carbonated beverages is prescribed for the first week. Soft pureed food is prescribed for a few weeks. After five weeks three small healthy meals are prescribed. Patients should drink plenty of water. Patients should eat healthy snacks or fruit and avoid fried snacks and carbonated drinks.

What is the sleeve made from?

The gastric sleeve consists of a thin tube made of plastic or rubber, called a bougie, inserted into the stomach to form a pouch.

How much can you eat after a gastric sleeve?

The gastric sleeve can generally contain only four ounces of food. The stomach has the tendency to stretch and stomachs can stretch even after gastric sleeve surgery. It is important to follow a healthy diet, drink plenty of water and eat small meals to prevent the stomach stretching after surgery.

I had a gastric sleeve done. All went well and the hospital is great.

I could not have asked for a better experienceKim, huaqiao city, 24 04 18

I had gastric sleeve surgery on 10 April 18. I was apprehensive about having surgery out of the country but my experience was awesome. The doctor helped me make the best decision about what surgery was suitable for me. The administrator planned everything from the airport pickup, to hospital stay and hotel stay after. It felt nice that everything was taken care of and I could focus on my surgery and healing. Everyone went out of their way to make me feel welcomed and comfortable. The icing on the cake was that I was able to have my surgery in a beautiful country full of history and enjoyable activities. The price was also very affordable. I could not have asked for a better experience.

I am so much happier now and more energetic than I ever was beforeSabrina, Canada, 15 10 19

I'm Sabrina from Canada and I'm on my 7th day after gastric sleeve surgery here in Istanbul's medical bariatric centre. I'm so thankful to all your staff for taking care of me, medically, mentally, and physically. I feel great, I have no pain. I'm actually on my way back to Canada and I've already lost weight, something I couldn't do before on my own, I was not able to move around or walk much or play with my children, even day to day activities were tough, but now thank god I can and will do all the things I could not do before. I waisted many years but the same day I found out about Istanbul bariatric centre and its popularity and very professional Drs. And the staff, I started my journey. They really saved my life, being overweight didn't only affect me it also affected my whole family and it came with many struggles, depression and desperation at times. I am so much happier now and more energetic than I ever was before. If anyone out there is looking into this type of weightloss surgery. Istanbul bariatric medical centre is where to go and put your trust in. Thank you so much. I love you all - best team ever!

Gastric Sleeve 28081 ₺ - 32401 ₺
Sleeve gastrectomy is technically a procedure involving removal of the large part of the stomach that functions as a reservoir.  With the procedure, the volume of the stomach that is normally 1.5-2 liters is reduced to 30-150 ml (roughly the size of a banana). It does not involve placement of a foreign body into the abdomen, as in gastric banding surgery. The goal is to reduce the amount of food that can be consumed at a time; however, no intervention is made to the digestive system’s natural mechanism in such a way as to reduce absorption.

Everything was like promisedFatiha, Denmark, 23 04 18

I had a gastric sleeve at the Derindere hospital by Dr. Gurdal Oren the 19/04. The operation was successful. I had all the information, blood test, radiology and scanning I should have before the operation. Had a meeting with dietitian, anesthésiste and the doctor also before the operation. After the operation I had all treatments by nurses every day and doctor visited me minimum twice a day. I stayed at the hospital for 4 days. Everything was like promised. Thanks a lot for the staff of the hospital. Hospital is very clean and service is very good. A few of them speak English but sometimes we used google translator or I called Murat the hospital coordinator for international patients. All of them were very friendly and handsome.

The gastric sleeve procedure, also called vertical sleeve gastrectomy, is done laparoscopically (using small incisions) and takes 20 minutes .During surgery, your surgeon will make between 4 and 5 small incisions in your abdomen (which minimizes scars), insert various laparoscopic instruments, and remove about 80% of your stomach. This leaves a banana-shaped “sleeve” that connects the esophagus to the small intestines. Your much smaller stomach will cause you to feel full sooner while eating so you’ll eat less and, as a result, achieve long-term weight loss.

I must say this is the best experience ever in my lifeOscar, Ireland, 29 04 20

Seven months ago, I had my gastric sleeve. Everything was very soothing. I went to Istanbul only for my surgery. To be very honest, I was very nervous about my surgery, but when I came to the clinic, I noticed that they provide their best services at a meager rate. All the staff members and doctors are concerned about the health of their patients. Within one week of hospital and & hotel stay, their clinic staff members very much cared about my health status, and I lost 42 kg in seven months. I must say this is the best experience ever in my life.

Gastric Sleeve 21278 ₺ - 22825 ₺
Gastric sleeve is a simple procedure. We access the abdominal area laparoscopically (keyhole surgery) and remove about 80% of the stomach by cutting it along its length. After sleeve surgery, the food you eat enters and exits the stomach via the same places as before (unlike gastric bypass), but you have a much smaller stomach. The sheath helps you lose weight in two ways. It reduces the capacity of your stomach and also changes the balance of hormones and proteins in the stomach. The change in the intestinal hormones, including GLP1, alters and reduces the appetite. Therefore, we expect patients with hives to lose weight quickly. It is important to note that your weight loss is not directly related to the size of your remaining stomach. The change in the bowel hormones will ease the weight-loss, whether you have a relatively “tight” or “loose” sleeve.
Gastric Bypass 27468 ₺ - 29015 ₺
Gastric bypass surgery is regarded as the gold standard procedure for the surgical treatment of severe obesity. It has been gradually refined over the past 30 years to produce a reliable, highly effective operation with a low risk of serious side effects The gastric bypass is regarded as gold standard because of its consistent and excellent results in achieving sustained weight loss and resolution of diabetes. The typical target is to lose about 70 – 80% of excess weight within two years. Most patients with type 2 diabetes who undergo a gastric bypass can expect to see a remarkable improvement in blood sugar control, often without the need for any regular diabetic medications. These results cannot be underestimated in terms of their transformative effects for patients, not only in terms of reduced illness and comorbidity but also because of the enormously positive impact it has on their physical and psychological well-being.
Revisional Bariatric Surgery 27468 ₺ - 29015 ₺
When bariatric surgery has resulted in complications, or when it proves ineffective, revisional weight loss surgery can be performed. Revisional surgery should only be carried out in highly experienced centres as it is the most complex type of bariatric surgery and is therefore contains the highest risk. Whenever a re-operation is required (such as conversion of a gastric band to an alternative procedure like the gastric bypass or sleeve) it is always more complicated as the anatomy may be slightly different. There may be an abundance of dense scar tissue in the area, and the tissue is often more difficult to handle. The risks of major complications and death are almost doubled when compared to a first-time bariatric surgery.

He was very supportive and use to answer my inquiry with no delayIrina, United Arab Emirates, 27 02 18

I came from Dubai to have a Gastric sleeve surgery. I tried so many different diets and use to spend 2.5 hours in the gym but nothing worked for me. So I decided that if not now it's going to be too late. My sister lives in Istanbul, so I placed my request online to check out what is going on. I did receive so many offers and the main reason why I chose this hospital is that the representative who was in contact with me, Mr. Murat, was very clear and patient. He was very supportive and use to answer my inquiry with no delay. He took good care not only about my stay in the hospital but also 3 days after being discharged. My whole experience in the hospital was wonderful. Very clean and cozy private room. Lovely and supportive nurses and staff. My surgery was done by doctor Gurdal Oren. Everything went very well and I recovered very fast. I am so grateful to the team of Derindere Hospital and will highly recommend them.

Fantastic care, the surgeon was great and put us all at easeChristine, UK, 24 11 19

We arrived in Istanbul on Monday 10th, had all a pre-op tests done on Tuesday, surgery on Wednesday. Fantastic care, the surgeon was great and put us all at ease. My daughter and granddaughter were getting it done with me and we are all delighted with results, we were able to shower, walk, to be honest, felt so well I had to remember I had surgery. No pain, just a little cramp now and again but not for long, delighted I went ahead with it. If there was any improvement for English clients could I suggest maybe better internet connection information in rooms as we had to constantly go to reception for them to connect us and I think they were getting fed up with us, maybe more English channels on TV would really help as the days can belong? An English speaking person on the floor would be great, although the staff were fantastic and really friendly. There was a breakdown in communication. Hope this helps if you are going to aim at the UK/Ireland market.

The team displayed knowledge and commitment answering all queries and concerns I hadAnonymous, stoke on trent, 27 02 18

After years of trying to lose weight unsuccessfully, I decided surgery to be the best option. I chose the gastric sleeve surgery after researching various options. Going abroad for any procedure can be quite daunting, but I can honestly say the level of medical care and attention; not to mention the cost, means the pros outweigh (no pun intended) the cons. Once I made the decision to go ahead with the gastric sleeve surgery abroad I sent a request for information through Whatclinic. I was contacted by several clinics, each with varying prices and levels of care. It was only after speaking with Ibrahim of Clinichub that I felt reassured about the procedure. Ibrahim and the Clinichub team displayed knowledge and commitment answering all queries and concerns I had. Contact was regular and the whole process was made easy. Upon arriving in Istanbul all arrangements were in place. Transport, accommodation, surgery, and aftercare. The whole experience was taken care of, so I and my partner who traveled with me were stress-free. Clinichub also provided a liaison to help and translate when needed (thank you Fatima) and to Bashar who was very helpful, as my partner will now be returning to the Clinichub team in the summer for a procedure. The hospital arranged by Ibrahim was modern and the staff were very helpful throughout our stay. The surgeon Dr. Gurdal Oren would regularly come by for a chat and check on my recovery. I can't thank Ibrahim and the Clinichub team enough for making this such a wonderful experience. Your kindness and professionalism will always be appreciated. Again thank you so much and see you in summer.
