Revision bariatric surgery

surgeryMost patients have heard terms like “bariatric surgery,” “weight loss surgery,” “gastric bypass surgery” or “gastric sleeve surgery.” Occasionally, they may come across the words, “revision surgery,” and wonder what the expression means. Revision surgery refers to any surgical procedure that is performed to reverse or correct a previous operation. Revision bariatric surgery is performed on patients who have had a form of weight loss surgery in the past, and have either had complications or have not achieved significant weight loss results from the initial surgery.

Revision surgery following weight loss surgery procedures is uncommon, but it does occur, especially in cases where older technologies like the gastric lap band were used. You can read about these procedures in our past article, “What is Revision Surgery?
