Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery – Bariatric Surgery without the Scars – An Immediate Advancement in Patient Care!
Single incision laparoscopic surgery involves less pain and little or no scarring. Since there is no need to cut through the stomach muscle, recovery time is significantly shorter, while the cosmetic results are amazing. Most patients have no visible scars after this surgery.
Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery
Mexico Bariatrics is proud to be among the few bariatric centers in Mexico that now offer virtually scarless single incision laparoscopic surgery, performed completely through the umbilicus.
This results in improved cosmesis and quicker recovery when you choose sleeve gastrectomy. Another benefit to vertical sleeve gastrectomy is that most patients usually spend only one night in the hospital, while the recovery time for bypass surgeries is longer. Ask your surgeon if you qualify for the new virtually scarless SILS sleeve gastrectomy.
Dr. Jaime Ponce de Leon is proud to be one of the selected surgeons in Mexico to offer single port access surgery.
Patients in Mexico Bariatrics benefit from their surgery and live longer healthier lives. In addition, they are supported by a team of experts that works to ensure each patient has a comfortable, positive, and supported journey from the first phone call to their success at hitting their health and weight loss goals.
What is Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery?
When Dr. Ponce de Leon uses the SILS technique, it means he makes one small incision in the belly button. This results in a surgery that is virtually scarless.
Single incision Lap Band and sleeve gastrectomy surgery generally involve less pain and little or no scarring. The actual operation is the same as it is during a typical laparoscopic band or sleeve gastrectomy.
The difference is just in the number of incisions made. Since there is no need to cut through the stomach muscle, recovery time is shorter. SILS is different from a typical laparoscopic Lap Band or gastric sleeve, because in those operations our bariatric surgeons generally make about 5 small incisions.
Although these operations are also considered minimally invasive and the scars are quite small, SILS gives an even more advanced option, which includes an often unnoticeable, single scar in the belly button.
