If you undergo a gastric sleeve surgery, your stomach will be significantly reduced in size and formed into a tube-like organ so that you can only eat a small amount of food.
The procedure is more complex than, for example, gastric band and therefore also involves higher costs.
The gastric sleeve surgery in Turkey costs about £3,500. This includes the preliminary examination, hospital stay and follow-up examinations, which consist among other things of several gastroscopies.Find out More

Depending on the clinic, the cost of the gastric balloon in Turkey is between £2,500 and £3,500 with the cost of inserting the balloon and removing it being included in the price.Find out More
Gastric band surgery does not actually reduce the size of the stomach. The surgeon places a band of silicone or plastic around the top of the stomach, creating a narrow passage for food to pass through.
Due to the bottleneck, you can only eat very small amounts of food with a gastric band and are thus supported in losing weight. After the gastric band is removed, the stomach is still about the same size as before, which is why many patients quickly gain weight again.
The gastric band in Turkey costs around £3,000 to £3,500. This includes the actual procedure, but also the preliminary examination and aftercare.Find out More
