Single port sleeve performed with the laparoscopy method, since the operation is a closed surgical technique, allows the patient to recover faster, a smaller scar tissue remains and the post-operative period is more comfortable for the individual. Read on to learn more about single port sleeve surgery, which is a very modern technique with many advantages.
What is Single Port Sleeve?
In the laparoscopy technique used in standart gastric sleeve operation, 4-5 incisions are made for the individual, while there is only 1 incision in the single port gastric sleeve operation which is also known as bikini sleeve.
The operation, which is performed under general anesthesia, is started by making a very small incision on the belly button. Its size is determined to be about 1 cm. Gastric sleeve surgery is performed with a camera using the laparoscopy technique. The stomach is reduced to a volume of 70 – 80 cc. By using a special medical device, the stomach is sutured so that there is no leakage. It is checked whether there is leakage by sending physiological saline fluid to the stomach. After making sure of everything is OK, the belly button is reshaped. There is no scar after the operation in any region on the body of the individual. This is the biggest advantage of starting the operation as a single port technique.
