The size of a SILS incision is between 15 to 20 mm and is usually near your navel.
The scar from SILS is often less noticeable compared to traditional laparoscopic surgery, which requires multiple incisions. It is important to note that scarring varies from person to person and individual factors such as your healing ability and skin type may influence the appearance of the scar.
The duration of SILS procedure varies depending on the specific condition being treated and the complexity of your case. The length of the procedure may range from approximately 30 minutes to a few hours, depending on the intricacy of the surgery.
Both the SILS and traditional laparoscopy are considered keyhole surgeries. However, the SILS procedure only involves one single incision while a traditional laparoscopy procedure involves 3-5 incisions ranging from 3-20 mm in length.
