Bariatric surgery is a powerful treatment to resolve obesity. Unfortunately, failure can result in about 5% to 35% depending on the weight loss procedure. The good news is that bariatric surgery revision options are common!
Whether it was ineffective or complications, revision surgery may be the best option to stop weight regain or overcome anatomic complications. There are 3 categories of weight loss surgery revision options;
- Conversion Surgery
- Corrective Surgery
- Reversal Surgery
With the growing number of bariatric surgeries performed, an increasing portion of patients requires a second surgery due to the undesirable results of their first-time procedure. Patients who do not reach their goal weight should not feel a failure. Weight loss surgery is a tool and does not work 100% of the time for everyone.
