Single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) is a technique that uses just one small incision to perform gastric sleeve surgery and more.
Dr. Alejandro López can minimize your risks, downtime, and scarring by using this technique when performing your bariatric surgery.
Our Tijuana, Mexico-based practice invites you to learn more about how SILS can benefit you.
How SILS Works
Can I Have SILS? Candidacy for Single-Incision Weight Loss Surgery
Although the benefits of using this laparoscopic surgery technique to perform gastric sleeve surgery and other bariatric surgery procedures are attractive to most patients, it's not right for everyone.
For example, SILS may not be recommended if you:
- Have dense scar tissue resulting from previous abdominal surgeries. (Note that our technology can allow us to provide SILS in some of these cases).
- Have a BMI higher than 40.
Your safety is our first concern, so you can expect to undergo a detailed evaluation to determine if SILS or another technique is best in your case. We provide services in Tijuana, Guadalajara, and Puerto Vallarta.
Why Choose ALO Bariatrics?
Training & Education
Our bariatric surgeons have studied and trained in some of North America's most prestigious institutions. Dr. López completed fellowship training in bariatric surgery at Chicago's Cook County Hospital.
We use the best technology for SILS in order to accommodate special cases involving umbilical hernias or previous tummy tuck surgeries. Our aim is to help as many patients as possible safely experience the benefits of SILS.
How Much Does Bariatric Surgery Using SILS Cost?
The cost of a gastric sleeve incorporating SILS will add $1,500 to the cost. However, if the SILS is booked at the same time as the surgery (as opposed to deciding to incorporate SILS after booking your surgery), you can save $500.
