What Is Bariatric Surgery Revision?

In many cases, patients who undergo surgery for the treatment of obesity achieve superb weight loss results. However, some obese individuals experience unsatisfying results in the months following their bariatric surgery. Some patients even regain weight or encounter medical complications over time.

Bariatric surgery revision can be an ideal treatment for patients who may not have experienced the desired results following their weight loss surgeries. The Tijuana Bariatrics network of bariatric surgeons can review your health history and evaluate your medical needs to recommend a weight loss method that will work best in your case.

When suggesting the right form of treatment, the bariatric team will educate you on what to expect at every stage of treatment and will explain the benefits and risks associated with a revision. They will also answer any questions you may have regarding surgery. With thorough patient education, you will be able to make a more informed, confident decision regarding the path you want to take in achieving your weight loss goals.

Bariatric Revision Surgery

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. They can also revise a gastric sleeve with gastric bypass surgery.

BARIATRIC REVISION SURGERY METHODS

Highly trained bariatric surgeons can perform revision bariatric surgeries of virtually any type in Tijuana, Mexico, 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, 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.

Tailored to Your Needs

In all cases, your revisional procedure will be tailored to your needs, and your surgeon will work closely with you to determine which approach can provide the greatest benefit. Your revision procedure may involve a different surgical option or technique than you originally received, depending on your health, weight loss goals, and lifestyle.

Effective Treatment
at a Lower Cost

Unfortunately, revision procedures can be a great financial burden north of the border. These types of surgeries can cost as much as $30,000 or more in the U.S., meaning they are simply too expensive for many patients in need.

Fortunately, Tijuana Bariatrics can provide you with a low-cost revision bariatric surgery that is about 20 percent of the price you can expect to pay in the U.S. Tijuana Bariatrics is proud to offer low-cost weight loss surgeries of virtually any type. However, it is important to remember your revision operation may require a different surgical approach than your original procedure.

Achieving the Results You Want after Revision Surgery

The Tijuana Bariatrics teams in Tijuana and Monterrey understand that candidates for revision treatment might be especially anxious about life after bariatric surgery. While choosing a more appropriate procedure can certainly improve your results, we will also be careful to look at the big picture: providing support so you can establish – and maintain – healthy lifestyle habits.

Every individual is unique and we believe your treatment plan should reflect that throughout every stage. Losing weight is a lifelong commitment and a nutritionist and other specialists will be available when you need them most.
