What is Obesity?

Obesity is that ratio of body weight to length becomes above the desired level as a result of an increase in the ratio of body fat to fat-free mass. Obesity by the World Health Organization is defined as excessive accumulation of fat in the body to the extent of impairment of health.

BMI (body mass index) is commonly used to determine obesity based on the World Health Organization’s obesity classification. BMI is a value obtained by dividing the individual’s body weight (kg) by the square of the height (in meters). Person with a body mass index calculation value above 30 is considered to be obese, and over 40 is considered to be morbid obese.

When Is

Obesity Surgery Applied?

If the BMI value is 40 kg/m2 or there are additional diseases (type 2 diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, hyperlipidemia, severe joint problem) together with BMI, if there is acceptable risk of surgery or if non-surgical treatments fails, surgical treatment can be applied.

The operations performed for obesity are examined in 3 main groups:
– Restrictive operations
– Operations disrupting nutritional absorption
– Operations that are restrictive and disrupt nutritional absorption

Our team has many skills so we’re able to offer a wide array of services. Far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Contia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Booksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean.

It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life.

Stomach Balloon

In this method, a hollow balloon is placed into the stomach from the mouth under mild anesthesia with endoscopy. Then the balloon is inflated and feeling of satiety is provided with a fullness in the patient’s stomach.

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Sleeve surgery is an obesity surgery performed by surgical removal of approximately 80% of the stomach. The newly created stomach causes less food intake due to the significantly reduced volume compared to normal stomach.

Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass is an older type of surgery than other obesity surgical methods. First, a small stomach with a volume of 30 ml is created. For this, stomach tissue is used near the esophagus stomach junction.
