Flymedi- Abud Alielah

I found flymedi based on a recommendation by a friend of the family, I was given Abud contact with high recommendation of his service and I was not disappointed at all ! From day one Abud was very helpful and professional. Abud found for me the suitable medical center and the perfect surgeon! He was always available day and night and on weekends as well and very patient with my unlimited questions and inquiries :) and very clear with provided information. After agreeing on the price, place, doctor and dates of the surgery, Abud took care of and planned everything from the day of arrival until the departure, including the hotel, driver, dates of surgery, consultations and more. I am very satisfied, everything was great 👍🏻 I would definitely use his services again I definitely recommend ✅ ✅ ✅

Never expected such a great hospitality…

Never expected such a great hospitality from Flymedi as a foreigner. From the time I landed in Turkey to the time I come back in my country I was treated as a friend. Thank you Yasmin for guiding me all the way. As you promised, I was not placed on the wait list.

Made my trip overseas so much easier!

Yasmin was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! She told me how to get a travel visa and luckily warned me of any travel restrictions that were going on! I had to rebook my trip twice due to covid & restrictions and Yasmin handled everything on the hospitals end. One of the times I had to rebook it was because my layover was in london and Turkey banned all incoming travel from the UK. The airline never notified me so if it wasn't for Yasmin warning me I would have gotten on the plane and been stuck in london! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Yasmin made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

Recommended For Gastric Bypass Surgery

Gastric bypass surgery is recommended for patients suffering from obesity or morbid obesity. As a rule of thumb, patients with a BMI (body mass index) over 40 are considered morbidly obese. Individuals who still struggle to lose weight although they tried all other weight loss methods, such as diet and exercise are also good candidates for the gastric bypass surgery.

Patients suffering from the following can also benefit from gastric bypass surgery: 

● Type 2 diabetes 

● Insulin resistance
● Sleep apnea 
● Hypertension 

● Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)
● Asthma 
● Other comorbid conditions associated with a high body mass index

Number Of Trips Abroad

1 trip

Discharge From Hospital

Patient is required to stay 4 nights in the hospital

Duration Of Operation

2 to 4 hours

Overview

Gastric bypass surgery, also known as weight loss surgery or obesity surgery is a type of bariatric surgery often used to treat morbid obesity. There are several types of gastric bypass surgery, depending on the different techniques used to reconnect the small intestine to the stomach. The goal of the surgery itself is to reduce the volume of the stomach, giving the sense of being “full” and change the patient’s physical and physiological response to food. 

Other bariatric surgery procedures include: 

● Gastric Band Surgery 
● Sleeve Gastrectomy

 

Patients who are considering weight loss surgery, they should talk to their surgeons about the different techniques to decide which is best for themselves.

 

Gastric bypass surgery is also one of the preferred procedures in the field of treatment abroad as in almost every procedure. Countries such as Turkey, by offering affordable private treatment cost packages and best prices as well as by having best doctors and clinics in Europe, are chosen often by the patients.

Preparation

The patient should stop smoking at least 3 weeks before undergoing surgery, as smoking can increase the risk of complications and endanger the healing process. The patient also should stop the intake of vitamin E, blood thinners such as aspirin and ibuprofen at least 2 weeks before surgery.

How It Is Performed

The patient is first administered general anesthesia before the procedure can begin, making it painless. 

The gastric bypass surgery can be divided into two main parts: 

In the first part, the surgeon will create the smaller upper stomach and the larger lower stomach by using staples, effectively dividing it into two. The top section of the stomach (called the pouch) is where the food patients eat will go and helping them feel “full” with very little effective food intake. This will help the patient eat less and lose weight. The upper stomach can hold about 1 ounce (oz) or 28 grams (g) of food before it goes into the small intestine.

The second step is the bypass. The surgeon will connect the small intestine to the smaller upper stomach. The ultimate goal of the surgery is to help the patient’s body will absorb fewer calories.

There are two main techniques which can be applied during the gastric bypass surgery: 

 

There are a few advantages of laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery technique, as it is a minimally invasive procedure: 

● Faster recovery and a shorter hospital stay 
● Less discomfort and pain during recovery
● Much smaller scarafter the surgery 

In both cases, the surgery lasts anywhere between 2 and 4 hours, and the gastric bypass surgery recovery timemay begin.

Recovery

Most of the patients stay in the hospital for 3 to 5 days and may return to normal activities in 3 to 5 weeks.

Risks

Gastric bypass complications can include the following: 

● An allergic reaction to certain drugs 

● Anesthesia risks
● Blood loss 
● Blood clots 
● Stroke or heart attack during surgery 
● Different types of infection 

● Infections in the stomach 

● A blockage of the intestine or stomach

Side Effects

Gastric bypass side effects can include: 

● Moderate swelling and bruising

● Constipation 
● Developing gallstones 

● Mild to moderate discomfort or pain
● Infection of the incision site 
● Dumping syndrome

Success Rates

Based on 513 gastric bypass surgery reviews sets the satisfaction rate at 96%. 

Before And After

Patients can expect to lose anywhere between 4 to 9 kilograms every month after the procedure. On average, gastric bypass weight loss is around 60% of the patient’s extra weight – this results in a healthier lifestyle with reduced risk from comorbidities. If the patients follow the aftercare and dieting instructions carefully, they can reach their best outcome and maintain it more easily. 

Faq

Is There A Gastric Bypass Alternative?
Yes, there are many types of bariatric surgery, including lap band surgery and gastric sleeve surgery as alternative treatments to gastric bypass procedure. 

Gastric Bypass Vs. Gastric Sleeve – What Is the Difference?
In gastric sleeve surgery, a large part of the stomach is surgically removed and the surgeon gives the new stomach the appearance of a "sleeve." 

Gastric Bypass Vs. Lap Band – What Is the Difference?
Gastric lap band surgery uses a band to divide the stomach into two portions. In this procedure, the stomach is not stapled or changed in any way - the lap band creates a blockage in the upper stomach, helping the patient eat less.
