Revision Bariatric Surgery
Bariatric Surgery Revision
Bariatric surgery is one of the most effective long-term weight loss solutions for those suffering from excess weight and obesity. It is however possible to start regaining some weight several years after a successful weight loss surgery procedure.
Whether reasons for seeking revision weight loss surgery are due to inadequate weight loss/weight regain, unresolved co-morbidities and/or medical complications, there is likely a revision solution to these problems.
Bariatric revision operations often convert the failed procedure to one that is better suited for the patient. In these cases, revision surgery may result in a tremendous improvement for the patient. These procedures can usually be done laparoscopically (with small incisions).
Revisional bariatric operations, regardless of the previous surgery, are always challenging for a surgeon. They require adequate expertise to achieve desired results.
