This operation, which is popularly referred to as a Tube Stomach, is the surgery most frequently used by obesity surgeons. It is performed by laparoscopic method and the abdomen is entered through 4 small incisions, approximately 80% of the stomach is removed. The ghrelin hormone, which we call the appetite hormone, is removed from the fundus part of the stomach, where it is mainly secreted, so that the appetite of the individuals is cut after the operation. However, the volume of the stomach decreases and the food portions are also reduced thus, after the surgery, you begin to lose weight quickly. The patient needs to eat less because she/he will feel full constantly. You will have a full check-up before the operation. After the full control, your suitability is approved and you will be operated.

Stomach reduction surgery is based on the principle that approximately 80 percent of the stomach is separated and reduced in size. The position of the intestines is not changed and the absorption of oral nutrients is not affected.
In gastric bypass surgery, a sac of approximately 60 cc is created at the top of the stomach. With this stomach pouch formed, the small intestines are brought and combined in a way that the first part of the small intestine that absorbs the most is skipped. Thus, both a small stomach pouch is provided and the absorption of orally ingested nutrients is reduced.
The biggest difference between gastric reduction surgery and bypass is that absorption is not impaired in stomach reduction surgery. Therefore, since vitamin and mineral deficiencies can be seen in patients with gastric bypass, they may have to use supportive drugs for life. This is not the case in stomach reduction surgery. Vitamin and mineral support may be required from time to time only in case of insufficient nutrient consumption.
Another difference between gastric reduction surgery and bypass surgery is that gastric bypass surgery has a higher complication rate than gastric reduction surgery, as more than one anastomosis is performed. In addition, there is no significant difference between the two methods in terms of weight loss in the studies. Although gastric bypass is one step ahead in diabetes control, diabetes and hypertension control can be achieved with stomach reduction treatment.
Another difference is that if weight gain after gastric bypass, the chance of performing a new surgery is almost eliminated. In case of gaining weight after stomach reduction surgery, second operations such as omega bypass can be easily performed.
For this reason, sleeve gastrectomy, ie stomach reduction surgery, is more frequently preferred as the first-line treatment than bypass.
