What is Mini laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy?

This is the chosen procedure if you are seeking surgical weight loss with the best cosmetic outcome. Mini laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy leaves your body with no obvious scars even port-site ones.

Dr. Shabana initiated this new emerging way to do the formal sleeve gastrectomy through the mini laparoscopic tools, so the surgical intervention has become not only minimal but the least intervention. 

How is Mini-Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy performed?

It would be hard to tell whether you did surgeries at all. This is achieved by using one incision (about 1 cm in size) within the fold of your belly button and three 2mm incisions, which would hardly show soon. Yet the challenge remains in using such precise laparoscopic surgical instruments that require advanced laparoscopic skills and the experience in using them.

Why should I choose Mini-Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy?

There are so many advantages of mini sleeve surgery, like:

  1. NO SCARS.
  2. NO PAIN.
  3. NO NEED FOR A DRAINAGE TUBE.
  4. LESS ANESTHESIA AND OPERATION TIME.
  5. SHORTER RECOVERY PERIOD.
  6. SHORT HOSPITAL STAY.
  7. FASTER RETURN TO LIFE.

The consistent basis in the science of surgery is that the larger the wound, the greater the side effects resulting from that surgery.

Therefore, it has been necessary for the development of this science to search for new surgical methods that reduce the need for large incisions in surgical intervention.
