For many patients, weight loss surgery provides long-term weight loss with an improvement of health and quality of life. For some patients, however, their weight loss surgery does not always provide the desired results. For these patients, revisional bariatric surgery may be an option.
What is Revision Weight Loss Surgery?
Revisional bariatric surgery is performed on patients that have undergone previous weight loss surgery but have not experienced the desired weight loss outcomes. There can be several reasons for this such as:
- Insufficient weight loss
- Weight regain after achieving weight loss goals
- Unsuccessful resolution of co-morbidities such as diabetes and high blood pressure for example
Revision weight loss surgery is not for everyone. The risks and benefits should be thoroughly discussed with your surgeon. The decision to undergo revision weight loss surgery is significant because it is considered to have more risks than the initial weight loss surgery.
Each individual patient circumstances are unique. It is recommended to speak with your surgeon regarding your particular situation based on previous surgeries and the safe options available for revision.
