This is a bariatric surgery that helps patients lose 50 to 70 percent of their excess weight.

The balloon is a smooth balloon made of high quality silicone rubber. It is inserted to the stomach of patient as a method of obesity treatment. The balloon has a radiopaque valve through which it is filled with water. The volume of injected liquid is set only once, at the time of installation. You cannot add or remove a little extra liquid. As a rule, a standard volume of 500 ml is injected. This volume is used by most specialists. The presence of a balloon in the stomach leads to the fact that it fills a significant part of its volume. Consequently, the amount of food that a person can eat decreases. In addition, the inflated balloon stretches the stomach wall, which leads to irritation of the satiety receptors. This irritation leads to the early onset of feelings of fullness.

Botox is obtained from the toxins of bacteria called botulinum. Botox injected muscles lose their activity and work less for a while. In stomach botox, the toxin obtained from botulinum bacteria is injected into the stomach. This toxin, which is injected into about 15-20 parts of the stomach, makes the stomach muscles work slowly. At the same time, it reduces the secretion of the appetite hormone in the upper part of the stomach and makes the patient feel full for a long time. Foods that stay in the stomach for a long time and are digested later help patients lose weight in a short time. With botox application, the effect of which lasts for approximately 4-6 months, patients can reach the desired weight in a short time by following their diet and sports programs.

In Turkey, salary and cost of living are lower than in Europe, in addition, the government supports the health sector. Therefore, a weight loss surgeries like Sleeve Gastrectomy can be done in Turkey without compromising on quality and standard, with lower costs at much cheaper prices.

You’re a good candidate for Stomach Botox if you cannot lose weight through diet and exercise, your body mass index is from 27 to 35 (not higher than 40), you need to lose 10-20 kg, you have generally good health and realistic expectations.

You are not a good candidate for Sleeve Gastrectomy if your BMI is less than 34, you have drug and/or alcohol addiction, you're under 16 or over 75 years old, you have a history of heart disease or severe lung problems, chronic pancreatitis (or have a history of this), cirrhosis of the liver, autoimmune disease such as systemic lupus erythematosus, blood disorder which increases your risk of heavy bleeding.

Bariatric surgeries are performed for people between the ages of 18 and 65. BMI values must be 35 and above. For people under the age of 18, the degree of obesity and the presence of the above diseases are important also parental consent is required along with a doctor's decision. For people over 65, the health status and the need for surgery are assessed (problems associated with a person's weight and problems that have arisen).

Today, gastric sleeves, laparoscopic gastric bypass and lap gastric bands are typically covered by most major insurance companies.

Patients reach their lowest weight 1.5–2 years after surgery, having lost 75–80% of their excess weight. In general, this result is still not stable, and the majority of patients gain 5-10 kg in weight, and then the weight stabilizes. But the result mostly depends on the patient. If you don’t follow post-surgery instructions any more and eat more, you can gain weight again.

Most patients lose weight very quickly following surgery. You should start to notice significant weight loss after just a few weeks.

A liquid diet is recommended for the first 1-2 weeks after surgery to avoid stomach leakage. The transition to solid food will occur in stages, for the next 2 weeks you will be able to eat soft, pureed food in small portions 5 times a day. You must consume a lot of water. Be sure to eat slowly and chew more. For the first 2 weeks, it is advisable not to lift more than 4 kg of weight. Due to the rapid weight loss, the skin becomes saggy. If you are thinking about plastic surgery, you can plan for it no earlier than 12-24 months after the surgery.

For the first few days, the diet should consist of only liquid foods. After that, you can start trying semi-solid, and then solid foods in 1-2 weeks. In the first days after the procedure, nausea and discomfort are possible. Within a week the stomach should get used to the balloon. Certain types of food can cause discomfort or even nausea. After 6-12 months, the balloon will be removed from the stomach in the same way as it was inserted. First, the brine will be pumped out, then the compressed silicone balloon is removed. If you and the surgeon feel that the process should be repeated for best results, then this can be done after a short break of 2 months.

You can go home 1-2 hours after the procedure and return to your social life immediately. However there simple things you should follow after the Stomach Botox. First of all, avoid heavy oily food, excess fried food, acidic drinks, eat more vegetables and liquid food, as it will remain in your stomach for longer time than before and fast-food-like nutrition can cause some stomach problems as ulcer and gastritis. Don’t forget to do sports as together with Stomach botox and diet you can get better results for less time.

You can start daily 30 minutes walks 5-7 days after the weight loss operation. One month after the operation, it is allowed to expand physical activity. It is possible and even highly recommended to visit the pool, since when swimming there is no vertical load on the spine and joints, and the work of all muscles is very intense. You can go to the gym. However, you should evaluate your strength adequately and at first the help of a professional instructor is desirable in order to choose the right set of exercises and the degree of load.

Since the procedure is performed under general or local anaesthesia, the patient does not experience any pain during the operation. In the first few days after the operation, slight pain may occur, but this can be treated well with conventional painkillers.

Of course, after Obesity Surgery, you can become pregnant and give birth. Pregnancy after surgery can be planned in 16-18 months.

During gastric sleeve resection, three-quarters of the organ is removed, and the remaining sac is in the shape of a sleeve. Due to the degree of surgical invasion, the gastric sleeve cannot be completely restored to its original size. The volume of the stomach decreases, so the production of the hormone of hunger also decreases accordingly. This ensures that small meals are consumed for the rest of your life, which means that weight loss is as reliable and permanent as surgery.

Weight loss after surgery occurs very quickly, in men - up to 25 kg in the first month. Rapid weight loss continues up to 6 months after surgery, then it slows down, but continues for about 1 year. 1.5–2 years after surgery, patients reach their lowest weight, having lost 75–80% of excess weight.

Depending on the type of activity, patients return to work 1-4 weeks after such an operation. If you work in an office, you can be back at work in a week or two.

During the entire period of treatment and surgery, patients usually experience stress and anxiety, in addition, after surgery, the amount of food taken is reduced, which can, in general, affect hair loss. Hair loss is temporary.

With obesity surgery, the closed laparoscopic technique is typically used. The number of holes used in laparoscopic surgery may vary depending on the patient's condition. Each hole is 1-1.5 cm and these holes are closed by aesthetic methods. After the operation, a very small scar may remain, but these marks do not cause any aesthetic problems.

Some discomfort during the first few days after the procedure is common, however this should dissipate if you follow the portion size recommendations provided by your doctor and dietician. You may be able to feel the balloon when you palpate (gently press down) your stomach.

During the first week of the procedure, no physical activity should be planned. Once your body is used to the balloon, you can continue with your normal activities. It is highly recommended that you start a regular exercise program and this will improve your success. As long as you have a gastric balloon in your stomach, you can not go skydiving, scuba diving, or bungee jumping.

No method, including stomach botox, guarantees weight loss. It is wrong to call stomach botox a miracle cure. While gastric Botox is known to reduce appetite and helps diet, there is also the potential for failure in patients who have been fed a high carbohydrate diet following the Botox procedure.

Patients lose 10–15% of their total weight over a period of 3 to 6 months. The amount of weight loss may differ from person to person, depending on the metabolic rate and frequency of exercise.

You can return to work the same day.

There has not been enough work in the world on the use of gastric botox during pregnancy or breastfeeding. Therefore, it is not known if there are any side effects for the baby or mother. As a result, gastric botox is not used during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

The first meal can be taken 2-3 hours after this application. However, it is recommended to start feeding with liquid food. You should follow the dietary program suggested by your dietician and avoid sugary foods as sugar will reduce the effects of Botox. In addition, you should not eat unhealthy foods such as acidic foods and fast food. Because these foods remain in the stomach for a long time, they can cause stomach problems such as ulcers and gastritis. After gastric botox, patients should give preference to liquid and vegetable foods.

Patients should have gastric botox application in hospitals with sufficient clinical experience (dietician assistant doctor and gastroenterology specialist) and should be able to reach the entire team for 24 hours. Doctors apply different treatment protocols and different doses of botox in each patient. Therefore, patients should be treated in clinics with high success rates.

Yes. Supplements provide the patient's body with the essential nutrients needed to maintain good health. A diet that will continue after surgery may not always provide the full range of nutrients, especially if the method being implemented has a poorly absorbed component, this loss of added nutrients will also need to be replaced.

No. A small percentage of patients regain a significant portion of their lost weight. This occurs especially when the patient does not follow dietary recommendations in the months and years following surgery.

Every abdominal surgery involves the following risks: bleeding; infection of the surgical wound and abdominal cavity; cardiac and / or respiratory complications, including thrombosis; intestinal obstruction, adhesive bowel disease and internal hernia; development of abdominal hernia; insufficiency of the anastomosis; risks associated with general anesthesia; The risk of mortality associated with weight loss surgery is low, less than 0.5%.

Do not drive until you are able to quickly and vigilantly follow the traffic and are no longer taking post-operative medications. This is usually a period of about a week or two after the intervention.

In most patients, the skin sags, but this is usually only a temporary condition. From the 6th to the 18th month after surgery, many changes occur. Individual results depend on body weight, age, hereditary factors, physical activity, or smoking. Some patients opt for plastic surgery to remove excess skin. Doctors recommend that you wait at least 18 months after surgery with this solution.
