After a procedure like a gastric sleeve, RNY gastric bypass, or gastric banding, reaching the goal weight is not guaranteed. Many corpulent and heavyset people enjoy their weight loss surgery with the joy of a slender body, great health, and renewed spirit; some people have unfavorable outcomes. Revision weight loss surgery in Tijuana is a less expensive alternative for people who could not maintain a healthy weight despite having undergone a former bariatric surgery.
The previously operated persons are already concerned about their failed attempts and are hesitant to spend more money on repeat/second surgery. They would benefit from choosing a medical trip to Tijuana, where they can receive revision surgery to figure out their overweight issues.
Revision Bariatric Surgery
Revisional Surgery is a remedy to help patients who are not achieving the proper weight or have undesirable complications. It is approved for patients who have already undergone a Bariatric surgical procedure but experienced:
- Complications after the former surgery
- Inadequate weight loss
- Recover of weight (about 40%) after the Bariatric surgery
While analyzing patients’ suitability for the Revision Bariatric Surgery, the patient’s age weight is considered to determine the cause of failure of the preliminary surgery.
If it is determined that the surgery failed due to the patient’s unwillingness to lifestyle changes, a more healthy diet, and workout routine are advised. The experienced doctors will decide which revision surgery would best suit a patient, depending on the type of preceding surgery and the reasons for its failure.
