Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, Single Incision Bariatric Surgery is major surgery, however, it is usually very safe if performed by a well-trained and experienced bariatric surgeon at a well-equipped medical facility. The procedure involves lifestyle changes which include dietary and regime changes.

The procedure is done laparoscopically whereby 4-5 small incisions are given and thus has relatively shorter downtime than open surgery.

All surgeries have some degree of pain involved. You may experience moderate amounts of pain after a Single Incision Bariatric Surgery surgery, however, each patient has individual levels of pain tolerance. You may have some discomfort at the incision site or as a result of how your body was positioned during the procedure.

If your pain stops you from moving, let your doctor know. Oral drugs are used to treat pain, and they function best when taken regularly, maintaining a consistent amount of medication in the bloodstream keeps pain well under control.

Yes, though there is scarring after a Single Incision Bariatric Surgery surgery, however, the scars are quite small. Since Single Incision Bariatric Surgery surgery is performed laparoscopically, where tiny incisions in the range of 0.5-1.5cm are given, the scars also are very small.

Any Laparoscopic surgery has a faster recovery and relatively shorter downtime as compared to open surgery. Stay at the hospital after a Laparoscopic Single Incision Bariatric Surgery surgery is generally 2-3 days and most patients return to normal activities within 3 to 5 weeks.

Yes, Single Incision Bariatric Surgery surgery can be reversed, however, reversing it would necessitate a procedure of equal or even higher magnitude. It is a complex procedure not commonly performed.

Dumping syndrome, also known as Rapid gastric emptying, occurs when food, particularly sugar, passes too quickly from the stomach to the small intestine.

The common signs and symptoms of dumping syndrome include abdominal cramping and diarrhea. Most persons with dumping syndrome experience these symptoms 10 to 30 minutes after eating. Some people even have symptoms one to three hours after eating, while others experience both early and late effects.

Though not everyone, a large number of patients face dumping syndrome at some stage after a Single Incision Bariatric Surgery surgery. The signs and symptoms might be mild to modest. Poor eating choices are the most common cause of dumping and can be controlled by making dietary changes.

Modifying your diet after surgery can help prevent dumping syndrome. Taking smaller meals and a reduction in high-sugar foods are the most effective ways of avoiding dumping syndrome. The other measures that can be taken include avoiding liquids around 30 minutes before and after surgery, choosing complex carbohydrates over simple carbohydrates, having a high protein diet, etc.

You may need medicine or surgery if you have a more significant case of dumping syndrome.

Single Incision Bariatric Surgery is a very effective weight loss surgery procedure and gives excellent long-term results, however, a lot of it also depends on the patient's compliance, age, BMI, overall health, etc.

Statistics have suggested that most individuals lose weight quickly after surgery and continue to do so for another 18 to 24 months. Patients may lose 30 to 50 percent of their excess weight in the first six months after surgery, and 77-80% percent of their excess weight as early as 12 months.

Studies have also shown that individuals might sustain a 60-70% weight decrease 10 to 14 years following Single Incision Bariatric Surgery surgery. The other major benefits of Single Incision Bariatric Surgery surgery are the resolution of comorbid conditions like Diabetes, Hypertension, Respiratory problems, sleep apnea, etc.

I recently traveled to Mumbai for a lower body lift and breast lift. As an American nurse living in Saudi Arabia I was apprehensive at first and did months of research. I chose IndiCure because of Dr. Jagannathan. I traveled alone and spent almost 3 weeks there undergoing 2 separate procedures. I was pleasantly surprised. The surgeries both went flawless. All of the hospital staff was amazing. Read Michelle Williams's Review About IndiCure Here
