About Bariatric Surgery Revision

In most cases, patients who undergo surgery for the treatment of obesity obtain superb weight loss results. However, many obese individuals face unsatisfying results in the months following their bariatric surgery and some patients, over time, even regain weight or encounter medical complications. Bariatric surgery revision is an ideal treatment for patients who may or may not have experienced outstanding results following their weight loss surgeries. Dr. Garcia can review your health history and evaluate your medical needs and recommend a weight loss method that will work best for your case.

Bariatric surgery revision is an ideal treatment for patients who may or may not have experienced outstanding results following their weight loss surgeries.

When suggesting a more optimal form of treatment, our bariatric team will educate you on what to expect before, during and after treatment, benefits, and risks associated with the procedure, and answer any questions you may have regarding surgery. Through thorough 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.

Revision Surgery Types

We 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. 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 band erodes. When erosion takes place, a hole within the lining of your stomach is created and exposed. To correct the complication and further your weight loss journey, Dr. Garcia can perform other bariatric surgery procedures including gastric sleeve surgery or gastric bypass surgery to mend the hole and put your health back on track. Both bariatric procedures can be performed, as well, if you fail to see the results you had expected when undergoing LAP-BAND® surgery.   

Gastric Sleeve

Even though gastric sleeve surgery is one of the most effective forms of weight loss treatments, the method may require bariatric surgery revision at our Tijuana clinic 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 a different form of bariatric treatment, such as gastric bypass surgery.

Gastric Bypass and Mini Gastric Bypass

The stretching of your stomach may require reshaping and trimming in order for you to continue to lose weight. Through this form of bariatric surgery revision at our Tijuana hospital, the smaller, upper portion of your stomach can be restored to the original gastric bypass anatomy. 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 benefit from long-term weight loss can find hope with a revisional surgery. Sometimes a sleeve revision may be the right route, although a gastric bypass is often the most suitable procedure to safely achieve a healthy weight.

In all, your revisional procedure will be individualized to your needs, and we will work closely with you 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. 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% of the price you can expect to pay in the U.S. Dr. Garcia is highly experienced performing bariatric revision surgeries, even for patients who are not considered candidates at other practices.

Tijuana Bariatrics is proud to offer low-cost revision weight-loss surgeries of virtually any type. However, it is important to remember your revisional operation may require a different surgical approach than your original procedure. Our experienced team will work closely with you to determine which procedure is most suitable for your case.
