Bariatric Revision Surgery

When a bariatric weight loss procedure does not result in long-term weight loss, a bariatric revision procedure can give patients a second chance at success. East Cooper Bariatric Surgery can provide bariatric revision surgery in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. In some instances, a previous bariatric surgery will not completely correct the issues it was intended to fix, or it can even cause more issues. If you have had complications from a gastric band or ring or from a previous bariatric procedure, make an appointment to discuss how we can help you.

There are a number of different reasons why a bariatric weight loss surgery can fail to produce long-term results, and our bariatric surgeon can diagnose the cause and provide solutions to help our patients get back on track.

In some instances, a patient may have temporary weight loss after their bariatric surgery, but then start to regain the weight. In other cases, a patient may find success in losing weight after a bariatric weight loss surgery, but experience acid reflux as a result of the surgery.

While the weight loss results may not be as dramatic as those from the initial procedure, it is still important to see a bariatric surgeon for a consultation to discuss whether a revision is appropriate. Bariatric weight loss procedures can help patients maintain a healthy weight, helping them to avoid other obesity-related health problems such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, sleep apnea, and more.
