“Scarless” Weight Loss Surgery
Essentially No Post-Surgical Scars Visible to the Eye
Gastric sleeve surgery dramatically reduces the size of your stomach, resulting in a feeling
of fullness. This procedure may also work by decreasing your body’s
production of Ghrelin, a hormone that induces hunger.
The Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (also called Sleeve or VSG) is one of the
most successful surgical options for weight loss. Using the novel “scarless”
technique, Dr. Quebbemann is able to make one incision that’s hidden
in your belly button, sometimes with tiny additional incisions. This is
in stark contrast to the 5 or more incisions typically needed for the
standard laparoscopic surgery. When the procedure is completed and the
instruments removed, there is almost no visible scar. Hence, virtually
“scarless” weight loss surgery.
Dr. Quebbemann continues to demonstrate why he has a reputation as one
of the nation’s leading bariatric experts in minimally invasive
procedures. He is the first surgeon in the U.S. known to successfully
perform a single-incision gastric sleeve through SPIDER® Surgical
System. Currently, he uses GelPOINT® technology alongside MICRO-laparoscopy
to provide weight loss surgery that results in essentially no scars for patients.
How the “Scarless” Procedure Works
A small incision must first be made through the belly button. Following
this, the GelPOINT device will be inserted through this incision so that
the surgeon can begin the procedure. When additional surgical instruments
are needed during the surgery, small, micro-incisions may also be made.
When the surgical operation is completed, the micro-incisions can all be
simply sealed with glue and the bullet button incision re-sealed, leaving
practically no visible scars behind.
