Conversion or Revision Surgery
As it is implied in the name, a revision or conversion surgery will revise your first bariatric surgery in some way. Patients look to revision surgery when a problem occurs that can be related directly to the first bariatric procedure. Another reason people consider revision surgery is due to the fact that they are unable to reach their weight loss surgery goals after the first procedure. Revision surgery is a surgical procedure performed on patients who have already undergone a form of weight loss surgery. They have had the lap band or the gastric sleeve or the gastric bypass and are having troubles with their procedures or they have inferior weight loss post surgery.
Most times when the bariatric patient has their surgery and follows the post op nutritional guidelines, they will lose a great amount of weight. What we forget to realize is that treating obesity can be identical to treating other diseases – at times one treatment just isn’t enough. If this is where you are right now, please do not feel uncomfortable or ashamed or consider this your failure. This is when it is time to contact the experts in revision surgery.
