For many people, rapid recovery after surgery is very important. Generally, the less scarring there is, the quicker the return to normal activity.
This photo shows what it looks like 4 weeks after single keyhole or scarless surgery for removal of the gallbladder.
As you can see, no scars are really visible.
This type of scarless surgery may be suitable for lap bands, gastric bands, sleeve gastrectomy, bowel surgery or hernia surgery.
Scarless surgery is not suitable for everyone. If you are undergoing weight loss surgery, gallbladder, hernia or bowel surgery, contact our clinic on (02) 4323 7000 to schedule an appointment to see whether scarless surgery may be suitable for your particular situation.
