Revised Gastric Sleeve Surgery
What Is It?
Weight-loss surgery is very effective with the proper dietary approach and an established exercise program, yet some individuals fail to reach their goals or gain back the weight after surgery.
Even though returning to a diet with excessive caloric intake can increase the risk of weight gain, the failure to lose the weight does not automatically mean the individual is at fault. Every body is different and may not respond well to certain obesity treatments. One medical reason could include gastro gastric fistula. This condition occurs when the stomach pouch is reconnected with the bypassed stomach. Other complications include marginal ulcers, strictures and severe dumping syndrome.
If a weight-loss procedure has been determined ineffective, Dr. Umbach may consider a Gastric Revision. These types of procedures may reverse many of the problems associated with bariatric surgery. Blossom Bariatrics will consider all factors and work with each individual to determine the best option for success with their surgery.
