Revision Weight Loss Surgery
At Beverly Hills Physicians, we understand that a weight loss procedure that fails to achieve the needed results can be a truly upsetting experience. Patients are disappointed because their weight has not sufficiently declined after a surgery; they may also be dealing with the symptoms of a failed operation that may include repeated vomiting after meals, severe acid reflux, and chronic gastric pain. Sometimes, stomach capacity may actually seem to increase. When you come to us for revision weight loss surgery, we believe it is our role not only to perform the best possible surgery to fix the problem, but to restore your hope in your ability to make the lifestyle changes that will lead to permanent, healthy weight loss.
As complex procedures, bariatric surgeries may fail for a number of reasons, necessitating revision weight loss surgery. In some cases, mechanical complications such as pouch stretching or slipped bands can occur during a procedure; in other cases, the initial operation was simply insufficient to a patient’s needs. Sometimes, a patient may not be making the necessary changes in eating habits, possibly due to ineffective aftercare. Even the oldest bariatric procedures can go wrong because of a doctor’s error or unfortunate circumstances. When a gastric bypass revision is needed, obtaining the services of one of the world class bariatric surgeons of Beverly Hills Physicians may be the best possible favor you can do for yourself.
A number of options are available for all types of failed bariatric procedures. For example, lap bands can be redone or converted to a gastric bypass. Gastric bypasses can be recreated, lengthened, or resized. Gastric sleeves can be redone or converted to Roux-en-Y bypasses, and so on.
Gastric bypass revision surgery or any other bariatric revision should always be performed by a highly skilled and experienced medical professional, as these procedures are often more challenging than other procedures. Our revisional bariatric surgery specialists are all board certified and widely acclaimed by industry professionals and patients alike. Plus, the Beverly Hills Physicians team sticks with our patients long after the surgery, comforting them during trying times and assisting them with diet and exercise regiments.
