Sometimes, an initial procedure may need to be revised. Surgical weight loss procedures done in the past were not as effective as those done today. Often times the older surgeries failed to achieve adequate weight loss.
Reasons for revision include:
- Mechanical failure of surgery
- Regaining original weight lost
- Intractable nausea & vomiting
Our surgeons have performed hundreds of revisional surgeries, giving our patients successful outcomes. Many times, a revision is exactly what a patient needs in order to be successful in their weight loss goals.
Talk to your surgeon if you think a revision is right for you. Your surgeon will do testing to see exactly what your past surgical procedure looks like to make sure a revision can be done safely.
