Questions and answers

What is a gastric band?

Gastric banding (adjustable gastric band) is a reversible weight loss surgery that allows the patient to significantly reduce appetite and the amount of food taken, and effectively lose excess weight.

In contrast with other bariatric procedures, the stomach band is less invasive and requires less time to recover.

Who is the best candidate for an adjustable gastric band?

This procedure is intended for overweight people with a body mass index (BMI) of 35 and over. However, this operation is not suitable for people with very high body weight, because the bandage requires constant adjustment.

It is also a suitable option for people with a body mass index of 30+ suffering from serious diseases (diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, metabolic syndrome, etc.) and for those individuals who tried to lose weight with the help of diet and regular exercise, but the results were not achieved.

The gastric band is also not suitable for people under the age of 18 and over 55 or people with alcohol or drug addiction. The best weight loss option for you can be chosen only after the consultation with an experienced specialist in bariatric surgery.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of stomach banding in Turkey?

Compared to other bariatric procedures, gastric banding in Turkey has the following advantages:

  • less risk of complications
  • non-invasiveness
  • possibility of adjustment
  • does not affect digestion
  • faster recovery.

However, the surgery has also some disadvantages as:

  • slower weight loss
  • the requirement of band adjustment.

Read more about pros and cons of gastric band here.

What is preoperative preparation?

Preparation starts from the complete body examination that includes:

  • blood and urine tests
  • electrocardiography (ECG)
  • chest X-ray
  • abdominal ultrasound 
  • blood test for viral infections (AIDS, hepatitis, syphilis, etc.) 
  • coagulogram (blood clotting test)
  • consultations with a nutritionist and anesthetist.

A very important step in preparation is a special diet. It aims to quickly and efficiently burn fat in the liver cells. A week before the operation, the patient should stop taking any medication that affects blood coagulation.

6-8 hours before the procedure, the patient stops taking fluid and food. At this time, the specialist performs cleansing enema. The operation is carried out in the morning on an empty stomach.

What is the gastric banding process in Turkey?

Around the upper part of the stomach, the bariatric surgeon installs a special adjustable bandage that narrows the part of the stomach reducing the passage for food. That’s why, food comes in more slowly and the patient is saturated much faster with less amount of food.

The bandage can be adjusted even after installation to meet your weight loss requirements. The surgeon makes are left under the skin, through which the gastric band is adjusted by injection of liquid.

Gastric banding in Turkey is a minimally invasive surgery and is performed laparoscopically (through small incisions in the abdomen). The procedure takes an hour. The patient is under general anesthesia. After gastric band surgery, the patient stays in a hospital for 1 day

How long is the rehabilitation period after the operation?

The recovery period takes 3-4 weeks. During the first week after the procedure, the patient should stay at home and not work. 

During the first few days after gastric band surgery, the patient must keep a liquid diet (learn more about eating after the procedure here).Semi-liquid and soft foods can be taken in 3 days after the operation. 

In 3-4 weeks, the patient can come back to the usual lifestyle. The gastric bandage does not affect the digestion, so the patient will not need to take additional mineral and vitamin supplements.

What are the risks of the gastric band?

Like any other operation, gastric banding surgery in Turkey involves certain risks. The most common complications after the operation are:

  • bleeding
  • inflammation
  • scarring
  • numbness of the skin and other tissues
  • band rejection (only in 0.002% of cases).
