What is Gastric Sleeve SILS Surgery?

SILS surgery is an advanced form of bariatric surgery where only a small incision, about 5-12 mm in size, or ½ inch, is made above or just at the belly button. This procedure differs from the traditional surgery method where large or multiple incisions are needed to perform surgery.

Gastric sleeve SILS surgery is done laparoscopically. All instruments are inserted through this small incision reducing the scarring. The surgeon will use a camera inserted through the incision to navigate precisely and utilize other instruments to do the surgery.

After the procedure, the surgeon stitches up the incision before bandaging it. Since SILS requires a small incision, you do not end up with so many stitches. In most cases, the doctor will only use small strips of sterile tape. Most people won’t even know you had surgery.

Procedure for Gastric Sleeve SILS Surgery​

Gastric sleeve SILS surgery is typically done in four steps.

A typical gastric sleeve SILS surgery takes 30 – 60 minutes. Most patients go home the same day of the surgery and resume their normal activities within a day or two. However, taking one week off is the most recommended option for better recovery.

After the procedure, you’ll have to stay on mashed food and liquids for two to three weeks. Then, you can start adding soft foods slowly before transitioning to regular food in your diet. The final transition normally occurs six weeks after the surgery.

The Traditional Laparoscopic Procedure

With the traditional laparoscopic procedure, the surgeon makes several small incisions, where four to six laparoscopic instruments get inserted. A special tool, known as a trocar, is then inserted to reduce the stomach by 80%.

After the stomach has been reduced in size, it is stapled close. The surgeon removes the unwanted stomach tissue and performs a leak test to ensure the stomach is properly sealed. The surgeon then closes the four to six incisions made.

“I had a wonderful experience with Renew Bariatrics. Everything was neatly organized and the entire process ran smoothly. The only hiccup had to do with our pickup to head back to the US, due to delays we left at 2:30 rather than noon. We knew something like that could happen though, so planned ahead and there were no real issues. I would absolutely recommend this group to friends and family, it’s very much worth it!”

About SILS Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Benefits of Single-Incision Gastric Sleeve Surgery

SILS comes with a ton of benefits over traditional laparoscopic bariatric surgeries.

These include:

Minimal invasiveness – Gastric sleeve SILS surgery is minimally invasive since only a small incision is required. You also don’t end up with a large incision or scar.

Improved surgical experience and recovery time – since SILS is less invasive, you typically get a shorter recovery time. There’s also a reduced risk of complications and minimized discomfort.

Significant weight loss – most gastric sleeve SILS surgery patients achieve dramatic weight loss. According to the Journal of Laparoendoscopic & Advanced Surgical Techniques, more than half of the patients lose 70.06% of their excess weight.

Is SILS Right for Me?​

Not everyone is a candidate for single incision gastric sleeve surgery.

The following factors make you more eligible:

A BMI between 34 and 39 – Candidates who have a BMI above 40 may require more extensive surgery. If you have a BMI of 32 and certain co-morbidities, you may qualify for the procedure.

No more than two abdominal surgeries – If you’ve had more than two abdominal surgeries, you’re more likely to suffer complications from gastric sleeve SILS surgery. A different procedure may be recommended.

Total commitment to weight loss – gastric sleeve SILS surgery is not a magical way of achieving weight loss. You still have to commit to a proper exercise regime and a proper diet to see the full results.
