How Does Gastric Bypass Surgery In Turkey Work?
After your gastric bypass in Istanbul, your stomach will be smaller. You will feel full after eating less food, meaning you can keep off excess weight, without having to feel hungry. Following the procedure, any food eaten will no longer go into some parts of your stomach and small intestine that absorb food. Because of this, your body will not get all of the calories from the food you eat. Before your gastric bypass in Turkey begins, you will be given general anaesthesia, rendering you unconscious before the surgery begins. This allows the gastric bypass surgery to commence in a comfortable, pain free manner. The surgeon makes 4 to 6 small cuts in your belly, before a laparoscope is inserted, followed by a camera connected to a video monitor in the operating room. This allows the surgeon to view inside your belly while the gastric bypass surgery occurs.
There are two steps to your gastric bypass that make it successful.
Gastric Bypass: Stage 1
The first step of your gastric bypass surgery here in Istanbul is to make your stomach smaller. Our surgeon will use stables, dividing your stomach into a small upper section and larger bottom section. The top section, referred to as the pouch, is where the food you eat will go, with a spatial capacity of around 1 oz, or 28 grams. Due to this, you will be able to eat less, and ultimately lose weight.
Gastric Bypass: Stage 2
The second stage is the bypass itself. Your surgeon will attach a small area of your intestine, known as the jejunum, to a small hole in your pouch. This allows the food you eat to travel from the pouch, into a new opening and into your small intestine. This allows your body to absorb fewer calories.
