You can have your stitches in small incision sites removed 8-10 days after surgery.

Is there a risk with the surgery?

Every surgery has its own risks. In this surgery, we remove 2/3 of the stomach with devices called staplers and make a small stomach. 0.5% risk of leakage from the stapler line can occur worldwide.
