It is one of the most preferred bariatric operations today. With this operation, the stomach is turned into a tube, and a large part of the stomach is removed. This operation takes about 2 hours. As a result of this 2-hour operation, the patient’s food intake is restricted, preventing weight loss and health problems caused by being overweight.
Like all surgical procedures, there is a risk of obesity surgery, even if it is tiny. However, since the success rate is above 98%, this low risk does not affect the operation decision of the patients much.
Since eating and drinking are restricted after obesity surgeries, patients lose weight from the 1st month following the operation. However, the perception that weight will never be gained after the surgery is wrong. If patients ignore their diet after surgery, they will continue to gain weight for a while.
