Reasons for Revising Bariatric Results
While highly effective, weight loss surgery of any kind requires rigorous compliance for longterm success. You may need a revision surgery if:
- Your initial bariatric surgery was successful, but you have stopped losing weight
- You have regained weight lost after your bariatric procedure
- You did not lose weight after bariatric surgery
- Your stomach pouch has enlarged due to poor diet following surgery
- Your first bariatric surgery was done incorrectly and requires adjustment
Incorrectly performed bariatric surgery in particular can lead to serious symptoms, including dumping syndrome, intolerance to solid foods, and severe constipation. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms after surgery, you should seek professional help immediately.
