What You Must Know About Laparoscopic Surgeries

The most common and safe approach to a Gastric Sleeve Surgery is done laparoscopally, which is a type of surgical procedure that allows a surgeon to access the inside of the abdomen (tummy) and pelvis through small incisions 

In a laparoscopy surgery there will make about five small cuts in your belly. He or she will do the surgery using a thin, long, telescope with a tiny camera at the end. 

The surgeon then uses a laparoscope. This is a small tube that has a light source and a camera, which relays images of the inside of the abdomen or pelvis to a monitor, where the surgeon has an optimal view to perform the surgery. This usually translates into a shorter hospital stay, a faster recovery time, less pain and reduced scarring.

LSG surgery takes about 2 hours. Most people stay in the hospital for about 2 days after surgery.

Weight-loss benefits of LSG
  • In the first 2 years after LSG, most people will lose between 40% and 50% of their body weight. If your BMI before surgery is 60 or more, you may lose about 125 pounds.
  • Studies also show that if you have obesity-related problems like diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, or high cholesterol, you have about a 75% chance that these conditions will also improve.
