Risks and Complications

The same as any surgical procedure, complications could happen. A few potential complications of cholecystectomy can include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Bile duct injure – the tube that transport bile from the gallbladder to the small intestine.

During the course of laparoscopic cholecystectomy, insertion of the instruments into the abdomen could cause an injury to the intestines or blood vessels.

Treatment Procedures

Your surgeon may perform cholecystectomy if your bladder contains gallstones (cholelithiasis), is inflamed or infected (cholecystitis) or is cancerous.

There are two ways to remove the gallbladder.

One method uses a big incision (6 inches approximately) in the upper right-hand side of the abdomen. Your surgeon then cuts through the fat and muscle and locates the gallbladder for removal. This method is called open cholecystectomy.

The Gallbladder

The gallbladder is a small pear-shaped organ situated under the liver. The liver makes about three to five cups of bile every day. Please refer to the figure below.

Gallbladder and Cholecystectomy

Bile helps in the digestion of fats and is stored in the gallbladder.

When fatty foods are eaten, the gallbladder squeezes bile out through the bile duct and into the small intestine.

Recovery and Downtime

You will be encouraged not to sit for one week following the surgery. The majority of patients are able to get back to work after two weeks, as long as they avoid prolonged sitting.

Rigorous activities must be avoided at a minimum of 4 to 6 weeks.

It is crucial that your surgical wounds are not subjected to too much pressure, nor exposed to injury within this period.

How It's Done:

Anesthesia Is Administered

You will be given medications for your comfort during the surgical procedure. Typically, general anesthesia is given so you will be sleeping and painless during the procedure.

A butt lift is often performed using a combination of local anesthesia and intravenous sedation. Your surgeon will suggest the ideal choice for you.

Pre-Operative Considerations

The cosmetic surgeon will normally request pre-op laboratory tests to determine your health status.

Your surgeon will require you to regulate, stop, or start taking some medications a week or two before your surgery, which may include eliminating aspirin, many anti-inflammatory drugs, and natural supplements, for a couple of weeks before surgery.

Smokers will be required to stop smoking before surgery.
