Having weight loss surgery in Cyprus is ideal as we can accommodate every personal situation, offering not only the common gastric sleeve but also the mini gastric bypass, gastric balloon and even the state-of-the-art stomach Botox® procedure. Below you will find a little more information to help you decide which weight loss surgery in Cyprus is best for you.
Weight Loss Surgery Cyprus Options
A gastric sleeve is usually the first thing that comes to mind when patients begin to think about weight loss. To qualify for the gastric sleeve procedure usually your body mass index (BMI) needs to be over 40 however this can be reviewed on a case by case basis. It is one of the longer operations with weight loss surgery in Cyprus as you need to stay in the hospital for 4-5 days after the procedure and in Cyprus for a total of 10-11 days. This is to ensure there are no complications post-surgery and so we can provide you with high quality aftercare and dietary advice. The gastric sleeve procedure takes no longer than 45 minutes to an hour and is performed via keyhole surgery where around 75% of your stomach is removed. This reduces the amount of food that can be consumed and provides satiety much quicker leading to an approximate loss of around 30kg.

Mini Gastric Bypass
A second weight loss surgery option with us is the mini gastric bypass and similarly to the gastric sleeve it provides excellent weight loss, around 30kg. However, unlike the gastric sleeve operation, with the mini gastric bypass operation, the stomach is only divided and not removed so it can be reversed. The additional part of this surgery is the “bypassing” of several feet of intestines. There are two benefits to the gastric bypass surgery, your smaller stomach means it will reduce the amount you eat and the bypassing of intestines will reduce the absorption of food to your body. With weight loss surgery Cyprus, this procedure is quick and easy, completed via keyhole surgery and again takes only around 45 minutes to complete.

A gastric balloon procedure is also available with weight loss surgery and the gastric balloon is currently our most popular weight loss treatment. After having a gastric balloon, the stomach feels fuller more quickly and therefore patients change their eating habits and subsequently eat less over the period of 10 months to a year with the added benefit that after this time the balloon is removed. At weight loss surgery Cyprus, there is no invasive surgery and the balloon is inserted into the stomach using an endoscope and the procedure lasts only 10 minutes and only requires a small amount of sedation for your comfort. Patients who have this procedure with weight loss surgery Cyprus, have lost around 15-25kg of weight in the 10 months that the balloon is kept in the stomach.

A new innovation for weight loss surgery is stomach Botox® and for patients who are looking to lose around 8-12kg of weight, this is the perfect option. Again the procedure with weight loss surgery Cyprus is done via endoscope and the stomach is injected around 14 times with Botox® slowing digestion and making you feel fuller for longer. This procedure is very quick and has no need for an overnight stay in hospital.
