When should I choose a bariatric revision procedure?

You need to discuss with a weight loss surgeon in order to understand if you are a suitable candidate for a revision procedure.

Your doctor will advise you and help you choose the most appropriate solution. Generally, there are two situations when you might need to consider revision procedures:

  • you suffer from complications after the initial weight loss intervention
  • you still fight overweight (due to unsatisfactory weight loss or weight regain)

Based on your specific circumstances and your general health, we will determine what procedure is most suitable. Of course, it’s up to you to decide if you want to have a revision intervention or not.
