Revision Weight Loss Surgery in Tijuana Mexico

by Dr. Sergio Verboonen

Studies have shown that between 5% to 50% of patients who have undergone a bariatric procedure will require revision surgery in the future. There are many different factors that might contribute to weight regain.  Revision surgery may be performed because you did not obtain the results you expected from your original surgery or because the original surgery has failed, and also because your anatomy has changed over time.  

Patients come to Dr. Verboonen for help because they have gained weight related to behavioral changes or new stress in their lives such as work, children, etc.  Some of Dr. Verboonen’s patients had gastric band procedures and now see their family members, friends or other people on the web reporting better results after the had a gastric sleeve or gastric bypass and now desire these benefits.

Bariatric Surgery Revision is a perfect alternate weight loss treatment option for the patients who are unable to experience the similar remarkable outcomes that other patients may accomplish following their bariatric treatment.



Types of Bariatric Surgery Revision in Tijuana

The Obesity Goodbye Clinic offers different forms of Bariatric Surgery Revisions against different bariatric procedures for their patients who did not experience a significant weight loss after the first bariatric surgery, are experiencing a post-surgery complication or are regaining the lost weight. Here are a few types of Bariatric Surgery Revisions that our skilled and experienced surgeons can perform:

Bariatric Surgery Revision for Gastric Bypass

At times, the patients of gastric bypass surgery may experience trouble in maintaining a long-term weight loss. For such patients, there are further bariatric solutions that can help them to continue with the weight loss and maintain a healthy weight.

In the first gastric bypass surgery, a new link is created between the newly formed stomach and lower part of small intestine and it is possible that some medical complication may arise in this new link after the surgery. In such situations, a Bariatric Surgery Revision for gastric bypass by creating another new link between the stomach and small intestine can help the patient to enjoy the full advantages of the gastric bypass surgery. In some patients, the first bypass may fail to deliver sufficient long-term weight loss. In such circumstances, extending the length of the bypass can be effective.

Bariatric Surgery Revision for Gastric Sleeve Surgery

The gastric sleeve surgery is meant to deliver a long-term weight loss solution, however, there is a possibility that the patients may start to regain the weight if they are not adhering with the strict diet plan and lifestyle changes. The newly formed sleeve-shaped stomach can get stretched out and weaken the effect of the surgical procedure which leads to the regaining of weight. At the Obesity Goodbye Clinic, we offer different options to help patients continue with the weight loss. These options may include further reduction of the stretched stomach or changing it to a gastric bypass.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery to Duodenal Switch Surgery

Another Bariatric Surgery Revision option for gastric sleeve surgery is to change it to duodenal switch surgery. Both gastric sleeve surgery and duodenal switch surgery reduces the size of the stomach, however, the duodenal switch surgery also regulates the way body absorbs the nutrients, which further enhances the possibility of substantial weight loss.

In case you had undergone a bariatric surgical procedure, but you are still experiencing weight gain or other medical complications, then you can be a suitable candidate for the bariatric surgical revision. The best way to evaluate your options for an appropriate Bariatric Surgery Revision is to consult with our bariatric experts at the Obesity Goodbye Clinic.
