Sleeve Gastrectomy: what to Know?
Sleeve gastrectomy or "vertical gastroplasty calibrated with gastric resection", is the most popular cosmetic intervention in the world to treat obesity. It involves permanently removing part of the stomach (the left two-thirds of the stomach) thus forming a calibrated narrow tube. This operation has three objectives: to reduce the quantity of food consumed by the person, to act on the fat hormone that is responsible for hunger, and to change the perception of tastes.
Surgery Procedure in Turkey
Before a few weeks of the intervention of sleeve gastrectomy, a detailed report is obligatory containing the consultations with the surgeon to evaluate the state of patient, a meeting with the psychiatrist, nutritional consultations with the nutritionist doctor, a consultation with the cardiologist, a blood test,...
