Lap band and other weight loss surgeries have improved the lives of millions of people by helping them lose a significant amount of weight and keep it off long-term. However, there are times when surgery might fail or require further attention in the future. At LoneStar Bariatrics, we are dedicated to health and well-being of all of our patients, even after their surgery has been completed. If you require after surgery revision for any reason, our dedicated surgeons are available to provide you with the surgical correction you need to maintain the results of your initial surgery and stay healthy.
No matter how successful your initial surgery might be, there are a number of reasons a lap-band surgery may eventually fail or require additional surgery. At LoneStar Bariatrics, our surgical staff can provide you with the intervention you need to continue living a happy and healthy life. Some of the most common reasons after surgery revision is required include band intolerance, band slippage, dysphagia, gastroesophageal reflux disease, pouch dilation, and esophageal dysmotility. These issues can all be addressed surgically to support the success of your initial procedure.
Patients who have undergone a weight loss surgery may regain weight after a period of time has passed. We can provide help and support for patients who have had surgery previously and have gained weight due to changes in their life or anatomical adjustments such as stretching of the stomach. The type and extent of any revision surgery will depend on the initial procedure you had performed. Patients who have previously undergone lap band surgery may require a conversion to a sleeve or bypass.
Patients who have undergone a sleeve or bypass surgery initially will require revision less frequently than those who have had a lap band surgery, though it does happen. For these types of revisions, options include conversion to bypass or duodenal switch, re-sleeving, attaching a band to the stomach, or sleeving the bypass, which involves reducing the stomach pouch and the passageway to the intestines. These are not the only options for after surgery revision. The exact procedure you may require will depend on a number of factors and can vary from person to person. That is why it is important to choose a surgeon who can provide you with the insight and experience necessary to help you make the decision that is right for you and your body.
Because a revision surgery will require dealing with scar tissue and other factors, your recovery may take longer than after your original surgery. For most patients, a hospital stay of 2-3 days is required, with at-home recovery taking a couple of weeks. Revision surgeries on average have very positive outcomes, allowing patients to recoup all of the benefits of their initial surgery and continue leading a healthy lifestyle.
If you have previously had weight loss surgery and find that you have regained weight or encountered other complications that are negatively impacting your life, contact LoneStar Bariatrics in Plano, TX today. Our experienced surgeons can help you decide whether a revision surgery may be the right next step for you.
