Revision Bariatric Surgery

Revision weight loss surgery is a surgical procedure that is performed on patients who have already undergone a form of bariatric surgery, and have either had complications from such surgery or have not achieved significant weight loss results from the initial surgery.

Why is revision surgery performed?

A small number of patients who have weight loss surgery relapse years later. How much depends on the procedure they originally had to address their obesity. These individuals may benefit from an additional procedure, called revision surgery, to help them lose weight again and treat specific symptoms.

There are many different factors that might contribute to weight regain. Revision surgery may be done because the patient’s anatomy has changed over time and needs repair. Patients may also have gained weight due to behavioral changes or some new stress in their lives. Other patients may have had the gastric band procedures and now see their friends or family members getting better results after having the sleeve gastrectomy or the gastric bypass done.

Types of revision scenarios

Many patients who previously underwent the gastric lap band procedure have found that it did not work, or that the complications were significant and now seek to have it removed. Also, some patients who had their initial surgery performed by an inexperienced bariatric surgeon may now live with unacceptably high complications.
