SILS

Are you considering bariatric surgery for weight loss, but are overwhelmed by invasive procedures and lengthy recovery times?

Single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) can produce the same results as traditional bariatric procedures through just one incision.

See how Jet Medical Tourism® in Tijuana, Mexico, can save you money and help you achieve a healthy transformation.

The Unique Benefits of SILS

In addition to weight loss and health benefits after laparoscopic surgery with our Tijuana surgeons, SILS provides patients with:

Improved Comfort

Bariatric procedures often require multiple incisions in the abdomen for a surgeon to access the gastrointestinal tract. With single-incision laparoscopic surgery, patients can expect a more comfortable procedure performed through just one incision.

Minimal Scarring

Traditional bariatric surgery requires several incisions, which leave scars following the procedure. With single-incision surgery, the incision will be placed discreetly around the navel. The scar can be easily concealed with clothing and onlookers may not notice it at all.

Shorter Procedure

Because this laparoscopic surgery requires just one incision, our bariatric surgeons can often complete the procedure in about 90 minutes. This means you'll spend less time under anesthesia and lower your risk of anesthesia-related complications.

Faster Recovery Time

Because just one incision has to heal, recovering from SILS is easier and faster than traditional bariatric surgery. Many patients report recovering in about one week.

Comparable Results

Though the surgery is performed through a single incision, the results are the same as traditional methods. For example, a gastric sleeve can be successfully completed through one incision instead of having a patient endure a traditional surgery that requires 5-6 incisions.

What to Expect During SILS

Our affiliated medical teams in Mexico have helped thousands of patients from the United States, Canada, Bahamas, and other parts of the world achieve better health and body confidence.

Anesthesia

You will first be placed under anesthesia. Although SILS is less invasive than traditional methods, your surgeon may still prefer general anesthesia. In certain cases, they may decide to perform the surgery using only local anesthesia and IV sedation.

Bariatric Surgery

Your gastric sleeve surgery or other bariatric procedure will begin with the placement of a single incision around your navel. Your surgeon will insert a tiny camera in the incision and perform your weight loss surgery while viewing it on a monitor.

Close Incisions

Once the surgery is complete, your bariatric surgeon will close any incisions made in your GI tract. The surgical instruments and camera will be removed through the incision. Then, the incision will be closed with dissolvable sutures.
