What is the Bikini Line Sleeve Gastrectomy?
The Bikini Line Sleeve is one type of sleeve gastrectomy, a surgical procedure that reduces the size of the stomach without leaving any visible wounds, just two small incisions at the bikini line or what's known as the Cesarean section line below the abdomen, in addition to a small opening at the navel where a camera is inserted to access the stomach.
Learn about the difference between the traditional sleeve gastrectomy and the Bikini Line Sleeve Gastrectomy:
The traditional Sleeve Gastrectomy
in Egypt is performed through 4-5 surgical openings through which the laparoscopic tools are inserted to perform the surgery. These openings are very small in size, not exceeding 1 cm, but they leave visible surgical scars in the abdominal area.
On the other hand, the Bikini Sleeve follows the same steps as the traditional sleeve gastrectomy but through only two small incisions below the abdomen and an opening in the navel area. It is considered more difficult for the surgeon than the traditional sleeve gastrectomy.
