What Is Bariatric Revision Surgery?

Bariatric revision surgery is performed to correct issues that may have arisen after a primary weight loss procedure. Although bariatric surgery typically results in a successful outcome with the patient losing weight and maintaining a healthier lifestyle, in some cases, clients need a revision because their results are no longer viable or didn’t go far enough to achieve their initial goals.

Reasons for undergoing revision surgery include the following:

  • Weight gain
  • Ruptured gastric bands
  • Staples that have been compromised
  • An enlarged gastric pouch
  • GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease)
  • Dysphagia
