Bariatric Surgery: Laparoscopic Surgery as an option
Benefits of Laparoscopic Surgery
- Less postoperative pain.
- Shorter hospital stay - 2 to 3 days.
- Less incidences of hernias, infections and seromas.
- Fewer surgical complications due to less time under anesthesia.
- Ability to return to work and normal routine sooner than with open surgery. Most patients return to work in one to four weeks.
- Less incisional scarring - by six months the trocar site scars are barely visible.
