Basically the procedure is performed laparoscopically , which means that instead of making a large incision in the abdomen, the surgeon makes small incisions through which passes a camera and specially designed instruments for this surgery.
These instruments allow the surgeon to make very precise operations, which is less traumatic for the patient.
The laparoscopic technique allows a faster recovery, reducing the chances of complications and post-operative discomfort to the patient.
Operation can get to take an hour to an hour and a half.
The stomach will no longer support the same amount of food as before and satiety appear much more early.
