It is a stomach reduction surgery for the treatment of obesity. The operation is comfortable and the complication rate is relatively low. Provides satisfactory weight loss. It is still the most common slimming surgery in the world.
The original name in the medical literature is “Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy”. This operation removes the bulging portion of the stomach, which is normally balloon-shaped.
Operation is carried out with a rod-shaped camera and rod-shaped instruments inserted through the abdomen through small holes. Automatic staplers are used. The curved portion of the stomach (about 70-80%) is separated and removed. Stomach capacity is reduced to the extent that it can receive only one cup of food at a time. Stomach vertically converted into a long-elongated tube. The structural and functional changes caused by surgery lead to decreased appetite and limitation of eating and drinking.
Ghrelin hormone is one of the leading factors in the stomach. Most of this hormone is secreted from the bulging part of the stomach. This part is removed during tube gastric surgery. The level of ghrelin hormone in the blood drops significantly. The feeling of hunger weakens and appetite is reduced. In addition, since the digestive flow path is relatively narrowed after surgery, the eating rate slows down considerably and makes it easier to feel saturation.
After the gastric sleeve surgery, a nutritional adjustment period which lasts for one month under the guidance of the dietician is experienced. The first two weeks should be fed with fluids and the next two weeks with soft foods. At the end of a month, solid foods can be fed.
Appetite is surprisingly reduced. It is possible to saturate with portions much smaller than usual. Healthy nourishments habits are easily formed spontaneously. Patients are less hungry, eat less, eat slowly, eat quickly. Surgery does not cause a serious deterioration in the functioning of the digestive system. Food intake in the first months is relatively limited and weight loss is rapid. Therefore, in the first 2-3 months, patients are advised to use powdered protein supplements and multiple vitamin supplements. In addition, stomach acid-reducing drugs are given. In the long term, there is no significant problem in the absorption of food required for the body. In general, tube gastric surgery is a mild to moderate risky operation in all operations. The majority of patients do not have any additional problems. Complication rate is around 1%.
Since the operation is performed with closed technique, it is possible to get up on the same day. 3-4 days of hospital stay is sufficient. In a few weeks, you can return to the usual everyday life.
Follow-up results are near perfect. Patients begin to lose weight within days after surgery. Slimming becomes apparent in a few months. Long-term medical follow-up results from thousands of patients show that patients who have undergone tube gastric surgery have lost 70-80% of their overweight. Most excess weight is lost within a year. Physical and mental relaxation brought about by the attenuation significantly improves the quality of daily life. It gives you a fresh start to life.
The fact that the change caused by the operation is close to the natural process (physiological), the satisfactory effect of the debilitating effect and the low rate of side effects have led to the fact that tube gastric surgery has become an increasingly preferred operation by patients and surgeons in recent years.
