    What Is Revisional Weight Loss Surgery?

    Before explaining revision surgery, it would be useful to give information about bariatric surgery. The main purpose of bariatric surgeries is to solve the problem of excess weight.

    People who have not been successful despite trying to lose weight with regular exercise and diet can meet these expectations with weight loss surgery. The body mass index of the person is taken into account in suitability for these surgeries.

    Revision surgeries, on the other hand, are an innovative medical method applied when ideal results cannot be achieved in the first or previous operations.

    If the patient,

    • has not reached the expected weight range,
    • regains lots of weight,
    • is experiencing various complications after the first weight loss surgery,

    at the point of solving all these, a revisional procedure can be applied.

    Bariatric Revision Surgery Process

    It is important to start by stating that revisional operations can be complicated. The patient is observed first. Original bariatric surgery results and recovery process are evaluated. Also, the patient’s medical background, current health status, and weight loss rate are under observation. It is checked whether the desired result can be achieved with natural methods such as regular nutrition, diet, and sports. If the surgeon decides that the result cannot be achieved with all these, the revision surgery process is started.

    The main purpose is to enable the patient to lose the weight they have regained after bariatric surgery. This operation is the most suitable for people who had gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy. This is mostly an outpatient procedure. That means the patient can go home after the operation. It is done under sedation. The anesthesia method and the duration of discharge from the hospital may vary from patient to patient and of course according to the doctor's decision.

You should follow your healthcare provider’s instructions and recommendations for getting better results. Also, it is essential to go to follow-up appointments, live a healthy life, and use vitamin supplements as ordered.
