Why Did My Original Procedure Fail?
All medical procedures have some risk of failure or complication, and each weight loss surgery procedure has unique vulnerabilities. For example, a Lap-Band® can stretch over time, resulting in weight gain. Similarly, because the stomach is a living, responsive organ, overeating or some other factor may result in pouch dilation and weight gain many years after the procedure. A few other factors can make a revision necessary, and all of these will be evaluated by your physician.
Why Are Revisions Complex?
The complexity of a revision is higher than it would be for an original procedure because the surgeon must reverse the original procedure and then carry out the new procedure with scarring present. LAP-BAND® to Gastric Sleeve revisions are relatively simple and the degree of complexity is totally dependent on each patient’s individual case.
