What is revision bariatric surgery?
Revision bariatric surgery has become more and more common and necessary for patients who have already undergone a weight loss procedure and are now experiencing weight regain. Our team at the Weight Loss and Wellness Center offer individualized weight loss surgery plans that can be tailored to meet your exact needs. Revisional bariatric surgery can often be done using minimally-invasive laparoscopic techniques. Because obesity is a disease, it can be difficult to overcome and may need a new treatment approach. We’re here to guide you through your weight loss and health journey.
Why is revision bariatric surgery used?
Bariatric revision surgery might be recommended for you if you previously underwent bariatric surgery and one of the following situations occurred:
- You were not successful in losing sufficient weight
- You lost weight but later regained it
- The surgery was done incorrectly

What does revision bariatric surgery involve?
Before your surgery, you’ll have time to speak with one of our knowledgeable weight loss physicians. You’ll be able to ask any questions you might have about the procedure, learn more about the revision process, and discuss any personal health needs or concerns.
Once you’re ready for revision surgery, you can schedule your procedure with one of our experienced bariatric surgeons, who will be with you throughout your surgical process. The exact surgical process varies greatly depending on your specific concerns and experience. In some cases, bariatric revision might involve your surgeon using laparoscopic surgery to decrease the size of your stomach pouch.
After surgery, your surgeon will discuss what to expect during recovery, which might include making diet or lifestyle changes. Then, we’ll develop a long-term weight loss plan with you, which might include one or more of the following non-surgical weight loss treatments:
