Band Removal in Turkey

Band removal refers to the process of having a gastric band, a type of weight loss surgery, removed by a surgeon in Turkey. The gastric band is a device that is placed around the upper part of the stomach, creating a small pouch that limits the amount of food that can be eaten. The band is adjusted by injecting or removing saline solution through a small access port under the skin, which tightens or loosens the band.

Band removal is typically done when the patient is no longer losing weight, or is experiencing complications from the band such as erosion, infection, or slippage. It is a surgical procedure that is typically performed under general anesthesia and takes about 1-2 hours to complete. Recovery time varies, but most people are able to return to normal activities within 2-4 weeks. After all, it is recommended to have a thorough consultation with a surgeon and have a clear understanding of the risks and benefits before making a decision.
