Gastric sleeve in Turkey / Antalya
The gastric sleeve in Turkey / Antalya is generally aimed at reducing the size of the stomach contents. A part of the organ is completely removed by an experienced surgeon. As a result, the volume of the stomach is reduced by an average of 80 to 90 percent.
What remains is a tubular stomach with a size of two to three centimeters and a capacity of 85 to 150 ml. If you compare this sleeve stomach with an ordinary stomach, it is noticeable that this type of stomach reduction in Turkey / Antalya has had promising success.

The first-mentioned ghrelin in particular plays a decisive role in reducing the size of the stomach. Unlike its competitors, it is mainly formed within the gastric mucosa. Cortisol, on the other hand, is formed in the adrenal cortex, orexin primarily in the hypothalamus, and leptin primarily in fat cells.
