Revisions

If you had weight loss surgery and it wasn’t as successful as you’d hoped, you can get a revision surgery. It doesn’t matter where the original surgery was performed or why it hasn’t worked. An unsuccessful weight loss procedure may be marked by:
  • Weight loss less than 50 percent of excess weight
  • Weight regain
  • An intolerance to normal foods
  • Signs that the overall quality of life is diminishing
  • Additional health issues caused by the surgery

We offer three types of revision surgeries.

  • Band to gastric bypass: The surgeon removes the Lap-Band and performs Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.
  • Band over gastric bypass: A Lap-Band is applied over the gastric bypass for patients who need additional restriction. 
  • Band to vertical sleeve gastrectomy: The surgeon removes the adjustable band and converts the stomach to a vertical sleeve gastrectomy.
