Obesity surgery is a treatment method in which surgical procedures aimed at weight loss are performed on individuals who are excessively overweight. These surgical interventions aim to accelerate weight loss and reduce health problems associated with obesity.
Gastric bypass surgery is a surgical procedure used for the treatment of obesity. In this procedure, the size of the stomach is reduced to decrease the amount of food a person can consume, and the digestive system is reconfigured.
Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) is a very common surgical method in the treatment of obesity. In this method, the size of the stomach is reduced and the millimetre is reduced. This allows some nutrients to be excreted without being absorbed.
Mini Gastric Bypass (MGB) is a method used for the treatment of obesity. With MGB, a significant portion of the stomach is rendered inactive, aiming to keep it unused in the body without removing any part of the stomach.
Biliopancreatic Diversion (BPD) is a surgical procedure used to treat obesity. Part of the stomach is removed and the small intestines are reorganised. It enables weight loss by limiting food intake and reducing nutrient absorption.
Gastric ballooning is a type of weight loss treatment. In this method, a medical balloon is inserted into the stomach and partially fills it. Thus, the person experiences a feeling of satiety faster by consuming less food.
Gastric banding is a surgical method used for the treatment of obesity. In this procedure, a band (ring) that restricts the stomach is placed around the stomach. This band shrinks the upper part of the stomach and creates a smaller stomach pouch, allowing controlled food consumption.
This type of surgery is a minimally invasive technique in which small incisions are made to perform a surgical procedure and images are obtained with a thin camera called a laparoscope. With this method, which is a closed surgery, many health problems can be diagnosed in advance.
Liposuction is not usually used for weight loss. Instead, it is a preferred surgical operation to reduce stubborn fat deposits in certain parts of the body and to give a more desirable appearance.
