Laparoscopic Surgery and Weight Loss
If you are over 350 pounds, you will not be able to endure a laparoscope. This is because the incisions will not be able to be made properly and it will be hard to see if the right area is being worked on. The second reason why you would not be able to use this type of surgery is if you have had abdominal surgery in the past. This will stress the particular area out too much and cause risk factors to be higher.
If you are considering weight loss surgery, knowing the type of incisions that you want to have and what type of technology is best to use should also be considered. Laparoscopic surgery is one option that can be looked into. Depending on what types of incisions you are comfortable with, as well as your bodies ability to handle this type of surgery can also be looked at. By speaking with your surgeon, as well as knowing what you are comfortable with will help you in easily making the decisions for your weight loss surgery.
