What are the Advantages of Gastric Sleeve Surgery compared to RNY Gastric Bypass Surgery?
- Duration of Operation
Sleeve Gastrectomy surgery takes 20 minutes. While RNY Gastric bypass surgery takes approximately 1.5 hour.
- Vitamin - Mineral and Medicine Usage
No medication or vitamin - mineral supplements are used for life after sleeve gastrectomy. However, due to the nature of RNY Gastric bypass surgery, lifelong vitamin - mineral values should be monitored and supplements should be used.
- Postoperative Weight Loss and Risk of Re-Weight Gain
There is no difference in the long-term weight loss rate or weight gain after both operations.
- Revision Surgery
The second Obesity Surgery operation performed after the first obesity surgery due to surgical error or due to weight gain is generally called Revision Surgery.
After Gastric Sleeve Surgery, you always have the chance to have Revision Surgery if needed. However, it is very risky to perform Revision Surgery after RNY Gastric Bypass surgery. After a successful RNY Gastric Bypass surgery revision, excessive vitamin - mineral deficiencies occur. This deficiency is at a level that will cause vital risk.
Considering all possibilities in the first surgery, a revision possible and relatively risk-free operation should be preferred.
