Weight loss surgery is a wonderful solution to morbid obesity, but it is not a miracle procedure. Thankfully, most patients are successful after undergoing a bariatric operation.
However, in a small number of cases, there are instances where revision weight loss surgery (changing from one bariatric surgical solution to another) is necessary.
This can be as a result of:
• Inadequate weight loss • Weight regain • Unresolved co-morbidities and/or medical complications as a result of the surgery, such as gastrointestinal complications • Issues related to the implantation of the gastric band
In these situations, it may be necessary or beneficial to change from one type of bariatric procedure (for example, the Lap Band) to another in order to restart weight loss and reach a healthy weight.
If you are faced with this situation, there are solutions. Talk with Dr. Seun about the newest and least invasive bariatric (lap band) surgical solutions.
