Myth: I will have a big scar on my body after surgery

Fact: Bariatric surgery can be done with small cuts that leave very little scars.

Nowadays, most bariatric surgeries can be done laparoscopically. This means that the surgeon will make very small cuts on your tummy through which the surgery will be done. As these cuts are quite small, they heal quickly and do not leave big scars on your body.1
