Who is it for?
If you are not contented with the results of your first operation even after complete healing, it’s time to consider a second bariatric surgery. To be precise, a revision surgery can be used for following problems:
- Weight gain. One study found that about 60% of patients undergoing bariatric surgery gained weight after three to four years. This surgery-related weight gain can be incredibly managed with a second operation
- Cosmetically unappealing outcomes. People may choose a second surgery to overcome their dissatisfaction with the cosmetic results.
- Long-term side-effects. You can regain your health and confidence by getting rid of the side effects of previous surgery. Coughing, bloating, fistula, or heartburn, revision surgery can fix almost anything
Note: Folks who are not in good overall health are not good candidates
Types of Revision Bariatric Surgery:
Here are four procedures people choose to optimize the results of their first bariatric surgery:
- Gastric bypass revision surgery
- Sleeve gastrostomy revision
- Lap band revision surgery
- Mini gastric bypass revision surgery
How it is Done?
The procedure will depend on the issue that needs to be addressed and the type of the bariatric surgery performed previously
For instance, for weight gain from lap band surgery, the surgeon will either perform transoral outlet reduction, increase Theroux limb length or add a lap band
Sometimes, the right fix is the re-sleeve, which is effective for people who have gained weight after sleeve gastrostomy.
If the patient experiences weight gain after gastric bypass surgery, the surgeon may be able to address it with some simple revisional measures. It is important to consult with your surgeon to find the right treatment plan for desired results
