Magnetic Surgery in Weight Loss Procedures
Magnetic Surgery eliminates the abdominal incision just below the middle of your ribcage and lifts your liver to expose your stomach for the procedure.
In traditional laparoscopic surgery, a tool is typically inserted through this incision to lift your liver. This incision is associated with post-operative pain, interferes with a woman’s bra-strap during recovery and results in visible scarring.
