What should I expect from a bariatric revision procedure?

Your doctor will tell you what the potential outcome of this surgery is based on your preoperative weight.

The results of bariatric revision procedures vary greatly based on the patient’s initial procedure and his or her ability to respect the doctor’s guidelines after revision. The outcome of revision surgeries is generally good and losing weight requires less effort now than it did after the first surgery.

Many patients who have had weight loss surgery relapse after a period and need a revision procedure. Despite the revision’s positive outcome, you will still have to follow certain guidelines after the intervention and take into account certain restrictions.
