How do I know if I
There are two main reasons why someone would consider a revision Bariatric Surgery.
- You have a problem with your initial surgery. Complications are uncommon after bariatric surgery, but some may require a revision surgery. The most common reason why people require revision bariatric surgery after a Gastric Bypass is for the treatment of a chronic ulcer. The most common reason that people require a revision after a Sleeve Gastrectomy is heartburn (GERD) or frequent vomiting.
- You’ve regained weight or did not lose enough weight initially after surgery. Our non-surgical program and online nutrition program is an excellent place to start if you are struggling with weight regain or inadequate weight loss. If you’ve had a Sleeve Gastrectomy, you have two revision surgery options available to help with additional weight loss – a Gastric Bypass and a SADI procedure. If you’ve had a Gastric Bypass surgery, there are not any great surgical options for helping with weight regain, but GLP-1 medications may be helpful.
