Below, we provide a comprehensive overview of revision surgery, so you can learn how it will either reverse your existing bariatric procedure or revise it to help you achieve significant and sustained weight loss. We encourage you to connect with us for a free consultation to discuss your specific needs and to address any questions that you may have, and to find out if revision weight loss surgery is your best option.
Revision Surgery refers to procedures performed on patients who have already had Bariatric Surgery performed by another physician (ie: Vertical Banded Gastroplasty or VBG, Gastric Band, Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, Gastric Sleeve) and have either had complications, or have regained or failed to lose weight successfully from the initial surgery. In some cases, patients seek revision surgery for a bariatric surgery procedure that used techniques or technology that are now outdated and need to be upgraded.
It takes specialized skills to redo a procedure performed by another physician. Our bariatric surgeons have extensive training in performing weight loss surgery and specialize in achieving superior results to ensure your revision weight loss surgery helps you achieve the results you want.
Your SmartShape surgeon will help you decide which Revision Surgery will best suit your needs. Depending on the initial bariatric procedure, the Gastric Sleeve, Mini Gastric Bypass, or LAP-BAND® may be recommended. There are many options available depending on the specific reasons why Revision Surgery is being considered.To determine the path forward, including the type of revision surgery you may need, it is important to set up a consultation with your surgeon to review your options.
The SmartShape Weight Loss Centre is happy to offer free consultations about our advanced weight loss procedures with a surgeon for patients from across Canada.
