Actually, the determining factor here is not how many kg but the body mass index, which is calculated by using your height and weight. Patients with a body mass index of 30 and above are considered obese. Patients having a BMI between 30-35 are generally treated with non-surgical methods such as gastric balloons. Surgery methods are applied to those who are 35 and over. For those between 35-40 and those with additional disease, the techniques we call Gastric Sleeve or rny gastric bypass are considered depending on the patient’s preference. Patients with a BMI of 40 and over are candidates for surgery without any conditions.

Nowadays, with the developing technology, the development of laparoscopic systems, the increase in our experience, the increasing number of surgeries and the development of imaging systems, the risk of obesity surgeries is similar to other surgeries with general surgery, like gallbladder or appendicitis surgery. Rather than the risk of obesity surgeries, obesity itself has now become more risky than the surgery itself. Therefore, we can also say, obesity surgeries can now be performed with acceptable risks.

The World Health Organization defines obesity as the accumulation of fat that impairs one’s health. What we mean here is this. Obesity is a condition in which type 2 diabetes, hypertension, fatty liver, sleep apnea and cardiovascular diseases occur more with the presence of excessive fat mass. Therefore, if you have obesity surgery and do not return to your normal weight, diseases such as diabetes, heart diseases, vascular diseases, fatty liver and even cirrhosis are waiting at the door.

Gastric Sleeve

The sleeve gastrectomy is a recently developed method in the surgical treatment of morbid obesity. Weight loss is achieved with restriction and endocrine effect. Currently, laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is the most commonly performed obesity surgery all over the world.



Intragastric Balloon

Gastric balloon is an easy procedure that makes patients lose weight quickly and effectively. Scientific studies have reported very promising weight loss results.




RNY Gastric Bypass

RNY Gastric Bypass (RYGB) is the oldest procedure still used to treat morbid obesity. Edward Mason first proposed this method in 1967, but several revisions have been made to the procedure since then. Roux-en-Y (RNY) gastric bypass surgery is currently the most effective and safest surgical method among weight loss operations.



Revision Surgery

Revision surgeries are secondary surgeries performed on patients who have undergone bariatric surgery by any method before, but the intended weight has not been reached or the targeted weight has been reached but the patient has regain weight, or has problems related to the first surgery. It can also be called corrective or transformative surgery.
