With bariatric surgery becoming a more common primary treatment to manage severe obesity and its health-related issues, there is a slight chance (around 5-8%) of a failure of a chosen operation and the need for a revisional surgery. Most common reasons for a revisional bariatric surgery are an inadequate weight loss or weight relapse.

For example, if you have had a gastric band surgery, during the revisional operation it can be removed and converted into a gastric sleeve or gastric bypass. Or if you have had a gastric sleeve, your surgeon may offer to carry out its revisional surgery or create a gastric bypass instead.

The choice of revisional surgery is made together with a patient and the surgeon and tailored to address each patient’s personal needs.
