What is the Sleeve Gastrectomy?

Sleeve Gastrectomy is the most common surgical method used today in relation to obesity. It is also commonly known as stomach reduction surgery. In short, Sleeve Gastrectomy is the operation of reducing the stomach by 80% to 90% depending on the weight the patient wants to lose.

How is the Sleeve Gastrectomy Performed?

Throughout the operation, the patient is completely anesthetized with general anesthesia and the operation is performed “laparoscopically” through small holes in the abdomen. We apply the “3 Hole Method” that we have developed. In this method; the holes are 1cm, 1cm and 0,5cm. The holes become too small to be seen 1 year after the operation. The operation is completed in between 40 minutes and 1 hour and 90% of our patients are taken to their room after the operation. The time between being taken from your room with a special stretcher and being brought back is 2-2.5 hours. On the other hand, our high-risk patients are taken to the “Intensive Care Unit” for a while; it is ensured that they are kept under observation and safe.

We are a team that knows very well that the relatives of the patients experience stress during the operation. We explain the process by giving detailed information to the patient and the patient’s relatives about the preoperative process and we inform the patient’s relatives at the end of the operation. You can also watch the surgery videos we have livestream on our Instagram page about the surgical technique we apply; you can have an idea about our experience and technique.

Can the Stomach Size be Adjusted in Sleeve Gastrectomy?

We can adjust the stomach volume according to the weight of the patients and change the area to be sectioned at the discharge of the stomach, and we can regulate the stomach size at rates such as 80%-85%-90%. Thanks to it, we prevent the person from losing excessive weight by adjusting the weight to be lost. For this purpose, we always ask our patients about the weight they want to reach before undergoing the operation.
