Israel’s leading team of surgeons performs various surgeries to treat breast cancer, including lumpectomy, mastectomy and reconstructive breast surgery. In addition, the plastic surgeons utilize a wide range of techniques to perform breast enlargements, reductions, and mastopexy (breast lift). The medical staff consults directly with patients to ensure the most effective treatment to achieve the desired appearance, with optimal results and the shortest recovery period.
Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique suitable for various operations in the abdominal cavity, for example, removal of the gall bladder and the treatment of stomach cancer.
Laparoscopic surgery offers patients significant advantages, including smaller incisions, which means reduced pain and a shorter hospitalization and recovery period.
The surgical staff possesses broad experience in laparoscopic surgery, and applies the technique whenever possible to benefit the patient.
Israel’s Bariatric Surgery Units provide a variety of surgeries for the effective treatment of obesity. Obesity is a growing problem throughout the Western world, and may cause many health problems, such as high blood pressure, high blood fats, heart problems, sleep apnea, stroke and asthma.
Sleeve Gastrectomy – This laparoscopic procedure reduces the stomach to approximately 15% of its actual size by surgical removal of a significant portion. The surgery ensures the patient is full after eating small portions of food, resulting in substantial weight loss.
Gastric Bypass Surgery – Gastric Bypass is performed in Israel and throughout the Western world on patients who are morbidly obese. It is a laparoscopic operation with approximately 65-70% weight reduction in the year following the operation. The surgery entails the creation of a small pouch from the upper stomach with a bypass to the remaining stomach, and reconstruction of the digestive tract to allow drainage to the intestines from both sections of the stomach. Following surgery, the patient can consume only small amounts of food, resulting in drastic weight loss and a reduction in the health problems associated with morbid obesity.
Plastic Surgery after weight loss – Plastic surgeons offer a range of body sculpting for patients after major weight loss. These include liposuction, abdominoplasty, lower body lift and upper body lift. These procedures are carried out under general anesthetic, and involve the removal of fat pockets and/or extra skin. Body sculpting surgery is an important final step for patients, both aesthetically and psychologically, after bariatric surgery and extreme weight loss.
