Bariatric Revision Q&A

  • What is bariatric revision surgery?
  • A bariatric revision surgery may be necessary if you have complications or aren’t satisfied with results from a previous weight-loss surgery. Dr. Dyslin can convert a lap band to a sleeve gastrectomy or gastric bypass. He can also remove a lap band that isn’t working for you.
  • Why should I consider bariatric revision surgery?
  • Bariatric revision surgery may be necessary if complications of a previous surgery cause persistent vomiting, difficulty swallowing, or severe acid reflux. You may also benefit from a bariatric revision if you have difficulty maintaining your weight loss after a lap band surgery.
  • What bariatric revision surgery options are available?
  • Dr. Dyslin offers minimally invasive surgery options, including laparoscopic and robot-assisted surgical techniques, to repair damage from a previous surgery. For instance, if you’ve already had a lap band surgery, Dr. Dyslin may recommend a laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass to help you lose more weight. By restructuring your digestive system, the gastric bypass surgery limits your ability to eat large portions and the number of calories absorbed by your body. Gastric bypass surgery is also effective at reducing weight-related side effects, such as Type 2 diabetes. A sleeve gastrectomy is a surgical procedure in which Dr. Dyslin reduces the size of your stomach to limit your food intake. This type of surgery is effective at helping you lose excess weight and reducing your risk of certain weight-related medical problems, such as high blood pressure. Both gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy procedures are permanent and can’t be reversed.
  • What are the risks of bariatric revision surgery?
  • Like with any surgery, there are risks associated with a bariatric revision. Reversing a lap band may increase your risk for internal bleeding, especially if you have scar tissue from a previous surgery. Dr. Dyslin creates a custom treatment plan and discusses what you can expect following a bariatric revision. He also determines if you’re willing and able to make lifelong changes to your eating and exercise habits to maintain your weight-loss results. To ensure you’re healthy enough for surgery and general anesthesia, Dr. Dyslin reviews your medical history and performs a physical examination.
