Dr. Fernando Garcia  Explains the Types Of Bariatric Revision Surgeries

Tijuana Bariatrics provides bariatric revision surgery for patients whose surgery has not been successful or has failed to help a patient maintain long-term weight loss. Dr. Fernando Garcia commonly revises the LAP-BAND® Surgery, which can be revised with gastric bypass or gastric sleeve, also known as a sleeve gastrectomy. They can also revise a sleeve gastrectomy with gastric bypass surgery.

BARIATRIC REVISION SURGERY METHODS

Tijuana Bariatrics works with a network of highly trained bariatric surgeons who can perform revision bariatric surgeries of virtually any type including, but not limited to:

LAP-BAND Surgery


In some cases, band slippage has resulted in patients needing revision surgery to replace or reposition the device following their original LAP-BAND® surgery. Often, LAP-BAND slippage is detected when a patient discovers that they are failing to lose weight following surgery or they begin gaining weight in the months and years following surgery.

Infection may occur in your stomach if the device erodes. When erosion takes place, a hole within the lining of your stomach is created and exposed. To correct the complication and resume your weight loss journey, your surgeon can perform a revision, including gastric sleeve surgery or gastric bypass surgery, to mend the hole and put your health back on track. And if you simply fail to see the results you had expected when undergoing LAP-BAND surgery, you may have other bariatric surgery options in addition to the gastric sleeve and gastric bypass methods, such as a Duodenal Switch procedure.

Gastric Sleeve

Even though gastric sleeve surgery is one of the most effective forms of weight loss treatment, the method may require bariatric surgery revision if the stomach stretches.

Over time, your stomach may expand, and it will need to be "re-sleeved" to prevent future weight gain. Some patients may not see desirable results following gastric sleeve surgery and could benefit from revision surgery, such as gastric bypass surgery. Another revision surgery for gastric sleeve is the Duodenal Switch.

Gastric Bypass and Mini Gastric Bypass

Stretching of your stomach may require reshaping and trimming in order for you to continue to lose weight. Through the gastric bypass or mini gastric bypass bariatric surgery, the upper portion of your stomach can be revised to achieve a better gastric bypass result. A re-sized, smaller pouch will help you to once again lose excess weight and keep it off.

Gastric Sleeve Plication

Plication surgery patients who do not experience long-term weight loss can find hope with revision surgery. Sometimes a sleeve revision may be the right solution, although a gastric bypass is often the most suitable procedure to safely achieve a healthy weight.
