Before After Photos

Before and after photos of obesity surgery are among the most researched topics on the internet by people considering obesity treatment. Particularly before and after photos of gastric sleeve surgery are frequently examined. These photos help to have an idea about the results of bariatric surgery.

We adopt a meticulous approach to sourcing and publishing before and after photos. We take high-quality photographs of our patients from different angles before surgery. For postoperative photos, it usually takes between 6 months and 1 year for the results to appear and to reach the desired point. During this time, we keep in touch with our patients and ask them to send us photos. However, photo sending is entirely at the discretion of our patients. In this way, we photograph the entire process and create a reliable source for both our hospital and our patients.

With the permission of our patients, we publish photos before and after bariatric surgery on our page. Publication is entirely voluntary and the confidentiality and privacy rights of our patients are respected. Before and after photos of bariatric surgery are an important tool that helps us visually understand the effects of surgery. However, it is important to remember that each individual's surgical outcome may be different and the results may vary from person to person. It is therefore important to consult a specialist doctor and make a personal assessment when reviewing the photos.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What does obese mean? How do I know if I am obese?

Obese is a term used for people with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 and above. BMI is a measure calculated based on a person's height and weight. Obesity is a condition that carries serious health risks and can cause many diseases. To calculate BMI, a person's weight (kg) is divided by the square of their height (meters). BMI = weight (kg) / height x height (m) (kg/m2)

2. What are the health problems caused by obesity?

Cardiovascular Diseases: Obesity can cause various cardiovascular diseases such as heart disease, coronary artery disease, stroke, peripheral artery disease.

Type 2 Diabetes: Obesity can cause type 2 diabetes, linked to factors such as insulin resistance and high blood sugar levels.

High blood pressure: Obesity can cause high blood pressure (hypertension), which can lead to heart and kidney problems.

Sleep Apnea: Obesity can cause sleep apnea problems such as respiratory arrest (apnea) during sleep.

Hyperlipidemia: Obesity is associated with high levels of triglycerides and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol.

Joint Problems: Obesity can cause joint problems such as knee, back and neck pain.

Cancer: Obesity can cause many cancers, including breast, colon, prostate, uterine, ovarian and kidney cancer.

In addition, obesity can reduce self-confidence, cause psychological problems such as depression and anxiety, and negatively affect social life.

3. I can't lose weight even though I'm on a diet. Am I eligible for bariatric surgery?

You are eligible for bariatric surgery if your body mass index is 35 and above, you are between the ages of 18-65, and you do not have a disease for which surgery is risky.

4. How is it decided which of the obesity surgery methods to be applied?

Health problems caused by obesity, especially metabolic problems such as diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular diseases, are determined by preoperative tests. As a result of these tests, your metabolic status and health characteristics are taken into account to decide which surgery would be more appropriate. These surgeries include options such as "Sleeve Gastrectomy" or "Gastric Bypass".

In addition, non-surgical treatments such as "gastric balloon" and "stomach botox" can also be applied for people who are not suitable for surgery or who do not want to undergo surgery. However, it should be noted that surgical methods are more successful and have a longer duration of effect.

5. Can I get rid of diseases caused by obesity after surgery?

After the surgery, the need for medication is significantly reduced in metabolic disorders that are difficult to control with diet and exercise treatments, especially in cases that require medication such as diabetes and hypertension. In addition, many pathological conditions caused by obesity are significantly reduced after surgery.
