WHO IS THE OPERATION APPLIED TO?
Gastric reduction surgery performed by Promed Clinic specialists is generally preferred not for aesthetic concerns, but for the elimination of life-threatening health problems. However, after the surgery, a large amount of weight loss is experienced in the person, and this can satisfy people. After sleeve gastrectomy, people may also request a tummy tuck or similar surgery, and this can be discussed with the specialist doctor for a later period.
Like other types of surgery, sleeve gastrectomy surgery can be applied to people between the ages of 18-65. It is generally applied to people who have been diagnosed with severe obesity (morbid obesity) and whose body mass index is over 40. Apart from this, it can be preferred in type 2 diabetes, metabolism disorders, sleep apnea.
