Obesity surgery is the most effective treatment method for overweight people in the long term. However, despite advancing technology and surgical techniques, obesity surgery cannot guarantee the desired weight loss, even if weight loss is achieved, that this will be maintained. Revisional Bariatric Surgery can be an effective solution in cases of not reaching the desired weight and re-gaining weight.
The operations performed within the scope of Revisional Bariatric Surgery are more difficult and require more mastery than normal obesity surgery operations. The patient's previous operation, eating habits, lifestyle, current and pre-existing health problems are scrutinized and surgery planning is performed accordingly. Regarding the operations performed within the scope of Revisional Bariatric Surgery:
Gastric Band Revision
Gastric band revision is more simple than other Revision Surgery operations because it does not perform a cutting procedure in the stomach and intestines.
After the gastric band is removed, the patient may undergo Gastric Sleeve or Gastric Bypass operations.
Gastric Sleeve Surgery Revision
After gastric sleeve surgery, the stomach may expand over time or the size of the stomach may be left large during surgery.
In gastric sleeve revision, the stomach may be reduced again or converted to Gastric Bypass.
Gastric Bypass Surgery Revision
After gastric bypass, enlargement of the gastric pouch and enlargement of the connection of the gastric pouch to the small intestine may occur.
In gastric bypass revision, gastric reduction and narrowing of small intestine connection can be done by endoscopic or closed surgery methods. Gastric bypass can be converted to gastric sleeve, duodenal switch or trans bipartition.
