Questions & Answers

Gastric Balloon is suitable for candidates with a BMI between 27 and 40, and the individual should be 22 years or older.

Gastric Balloon and Gastric Sleeve are distinct procedures catering to different BMI ranges. Gastric Sleeve is reserved for individuals with a BMI of 40 or higher and involves surgery, carrying inherent surgical risks. In comparison, Gastric Balloon is considered safer with minimal complications, making it a favorable choice for those with a BMI between 27 and 40.

Patients have been shown to lose up to 47% of their excess weight in six months after the gastric balloon. This is an average and it can be more or less according to your diet, exercise and lifestyle.

The initial four weeks following a gastric balloon procedure involve a specific diet. The first two weeks focus on a clear liquid diet, followed by the gradual introduction of soft pureed foods in the subsequent two weeks. Solid foods are reintroduced afterward.

Gastric balloon treatment is generally safe, with minimal complications. Potential side effects include nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. These reactions are natural responses to the presence of the balloon and often subside within a few days.

No, a gastric balloon will not burst. Although resistant to stomach acid, there is a slight risk of puncture. In the event of a rupture, the balloon is removed from the stomach.

While individuals do not feel pain during the sedated procedure, some may experience discomfort during balloon inflation. Mild discomfort lasting 3-4 days is reported by about one-third of people after balloon insertion.

The duration varies between 4-6 or 12 months, depending on the type of gastric balloon.

Gastric balloon insertion is not recommended during breastfeeding due to potential impacts on milk quantity and quality from the post-balloon diet.

Individuals typically return to daily life and work within days.

I first visited Clinic Antalya in November 2023 to have a gastric sleeve through the excellent tests I discovered I had a cancerous lump in my kidney and had to return home to have that removed and treated. The support and guidance from Dr Namik and Jolanda was amazing. I returned to the Clinic in May 2024 to have my gastric sleeve and the service and support was second to none I was welcomed by Jolanda checked in and settled as feeling very anxious was made to feel good by the staff. Checks completed and then to the operation I felt in safe hands all the time.Recovery was tough but you are encouraged and helped all the way.Antalya is a beautiful place and once you check into the hotel you can relax but you are still looked after by Dr Namik and Jolanda they are fully supportive from the start and ongoing.The service and after care is very good and guidance from home is always there you are cared for all the way I would highly recommend the clinic to everyone this has been an amazing journey and changed my life I am very grateful

Everything was explained so well. Before I was asked for any money, I felt I had undergone a full health check and was confirmed fit for surgery. This is primarily about you and your health. Great care, constant contact with the coordinator. Everything went great. I feel great. 5 months after surgery is great. I give this clinic 5 stars and I definitely recommend it to everyone.

I came to Clinic Antalya in May 2024 and iI had the most amazing experience!!! Me & my friend traveled together to have a gastric sleeve, and from start to finish we had such a positive experience. We were greeted by the amazing Jolanda who explained everything and put us at ease. We then went to see all the doctors and the service was amazing. I found out more about my body in one day than I had ever done before!! We then met Dr Namik who was so kind and reassuring. The hospital was like a 5* hotel & the nursing staff were fabulous. Very caring & helpful! Recovery in the hospital as great, they can’t do enough for you. You then went on to a hotel to rest after a few days. We were picked up for appointments and follow ups. Everything happened on time and to the book. We even had a day lounging by the pool! I can’t recommend this clinic enough. They have changed my life for the better & I would tell anyone looking for a Clinic to go to Dr Namik! Thank you so much!

Clinic Antalya was recommended to us, as we were looking for a gastric sleeve surgeon. We got pretty fast an appointment in the beautiful looking office with view to the Antalya beach. Dr. Namik is a really nice and welcoming person, we felt comfortable the second we got the consultation. He explained the whole process (we chose english, because thats what we all understand, but he can also speak german) and made an appointment 2 weeks later.At the Medstar Hospital I got all the needed check-ups done and as soon as everything got approved by different doctors, the surgery was about to take place.I also want to mention Alexandra and her husband Nusret, who were always available and checked on me at any time! Even if you met them in private they stop for a nice talk.The surgery went perfectly fine, I had no pain and stayed in the hospital for 3 days in total. The nurses in the hospital only speak turkish but they try to communicate as good as possible.I stayed in turkey for 2 more months, Dr. Namik and Alexandra checked on me several times.I can recommend Clinic Antalya to everyone who wants to have a bariatric surgery, its the best care I ever had ♥

From booking to sitting around the pool four days post op, I have never experienced such kindness, professionalism and passionate people. Yolanda was like a mother to me, she held my hand, breathed with me and has answered absolutely every silly question I’ve asked. And Dr Namik is the absolute best surgeon, he put me at ease, made me laugh. Made me smile. I’m feeling so excited for the future and I’ve found family here at clinic Antalya. Love you all and will be forever grateful for the care I’ve received. X
