What is revisional bariatric surgery?

Revisional bariatric surgery is a procedure that changes or fixes a former weight loss surgical procedure. The bariatric surgeons at Murrieta Valley Surgery Associates perform this procedure for patients who fail to get long-term results from their original surgery.

Revisional bariatric surgery may involve correcting or repairing the original procedure or doing a new procedure.

Can revisional bariatric surgery help me reach my weight goals?

The goal of revisional bariatric surgery is to enhance your weight loss so you reach your goals and stay there.

The team at Murrieta Valley Surgery Associates performs revisional bariatric surgery for patients who regain weight or fail to lose significant amounts of weight as expected following weight loss surgery. 

The bariatric surgeons also recommend revisional bariatric surgery if you have complications from your original procedure, such as gastrointestinal ulcers, reflux, or enlargement of the stomach pouch.

Revisional bariatric surgery is also recommended for patients with a loose or shifting gastric band (LAP-BAND). 

What happens during revisional bariatric surgery?

Your surgeon at Murrieta Valley Surgery Associates customizes your revisional bariatric surgery, so you get the best possible outcomes. When designing your plan, they consider the original procedure performed, the problems you’re having, and your weight loss goals. 

Revisional bariatric surgery is more complex than weight loss surgery and requires surgeons with specialized skills and expertise like those at Murrieta Valley Surgery Associates. 

During revision surgery, they may repair the original procedure or do another weight loss surgery, such as gastric bypass or gastric sleeve. 

Do I follow a special diet after revisional bariatric surgery?

After revisional bariatric surgery, you must follow a diet similar to your original surgery

Like the diet after your original surgery, you need to follow a high-protein liquid diet and slowly advance to a regular diet as your stomach heals.

Murrieta Valley Surgery Associates has you work with their registered dietitians for your weight loss surgery diet and nutrition plan.

Results after revisional bariatric surgery vary, but you can expect to get closer to your desired weight.
