When & Why Should You Consider Revision Weight Loss Surgery?

There have been many new advances in technology and surgical techniques in recent years. These advances have significantly improved bariatric surgery and led to better bariatric results. Long-term weight loss success is possible. Not all weight loss surgery or bariatric surgeons are the same. Dr. Cribbins's 20 years of experience, advanced training, skill, and expertise set him apart.

Improved Results

If gastric band surgery, gastric bypass surgery, or gastric sleeve surgery did not produce the results you wanted, or if you gained weight after some time, bariatric revision can help you achieve better results or restart your weight loss.

Better Overall Health

By reducing or even reversing comorbidities such as type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, and high cholesterol, a successful weight loss procedure can help you improve your overall health. If you suffer from acid reflux, a gastric bypass can be used to redirect acid away from the esophagus, reducing symptoms like heartburn.

Superior Quality of Life

Bariatric surgery revision gives patients a second chance to lose excess weight. In some cases, this means a new lease on life. The confidence that comes from greater comfort often translates to every part of your life.

Dr Cribbins and his team went above any beyond. I was scared of the surgery at first especially since I’ve never had any surgery but Dr cribbins and his team were really nice and guided me through everything. Once I woke up I didn’t even realize it was over. Would recommend anyone interested to go talk to him because he is pretty honest and will guide you down the right path. Thanks again Dr Cribbins for the life changing experience! Also ask for Marty! He will definitely take care of you as well!

Reasons to Consider Revision Surgery

Weight Regain

Whether your weight regain occurred years later or soon after your initial procedure, revision can help. If you suffered a weight regain it is important to understand thatthere are options. Several different factors could have caused you to gain weight, including; improper post-operative instructions, deviations from your weight loss plan, anatomical changes, behavioral changes, lifestyle changes, stress, or pregnancy.

Complications

Although the risk of complications from gastric bypass, LAP-BAND®, and other surgeries is low, complications can occur. If youroriginal procedure was not performed correctly, our board-certified doctors can help.

We use careful planning and state-of-the-art technology with Da Vinci Xito ensure safe, successful outcomes each time.

Updated Procedures

Weight loss surgery has evolved dramaticallyover the past few years. Many patients from Plano, Dallas, and other parts of Texas come to us for the latest procedures like gastric bypass or gastric sleeve that could help them lose weight more efficiently and effectively. Some patients who received a gastric band in the past now require revision surgery to address reflux, weight regain, or a slipped band.

There are also many patients that come to Texas Center for a re-sleeve or a sleeve to bypass to achieve greater weight loss results that were not achieved from their first surgery. Dr. Cribbins uses the Da Vinci Xi surgical system, which provides him with 3DHD vision and increased accuracy during the surgery, resulting in better patient outcomes.

Which Revision Surgery Is Right for You?

Texas Center Surgeons take several factors into account whendeciding which surgery to perform:

Your Health and Lifestyle

Before performing revision bariatric surgery, our doctors want to find out why the relapse or complications occurred so that we can find a procedure that is better suited to your needs. We will examinegenetics, nutrition, behavior patterns, and environmental factors at homethat could be influencing your weight.

Which Procedure You Initially Underwent

We will also takeinto account which procedure you underwent the first timeto decide which revision bariatric surgery is right for you.

WhatAre Your Surgical Options?

VerticalSleeve Gastrectomy to SADI-S, also known as an "Enhanced Sleeve"

People who have had a VSG and did not achieve their desired weight loss goals are able to have their sleeve enhanced. With this procedure the surgeon is able to patients achieve their desired weight loss.

Gastric Band Removal & Revision

Many patients who received a gastric band in the past choose bariatric revision because of weight regain or band slippage. Their options include:

  • Band to Gastric Sleeve
  • Band to Gastric Bypass Surgery

Sleeve Revision/Re-Sleeve

Gastric sleeve/vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG) is a highly effective type of bariatric surgery, but it is normal for the stomach pouch to expand over time, causing weight regain at times. If you are unsatisfied with the results of your gastric sleeve, you can choose:

  • Gastric Sleeve to Gastric Bypass
  • Re-Sleeve

Gastric Bypass Revision

Gastric bypass surgery reduces the size of the stomach and reroutes the intestines, so it is a highly effective form of weight loss surgery. But if you failed to lose a sufficient amount of weight, regained weight, or suffered complications after a gastric bypass, it may be time to consider a revision to yourgastric bypass surgery.

Gastric Band Revision

Many patients from Plano, Dallas, and other parts of Texas come to us for gastric band revision, port replacements, and routine band adjustments/fills. Texas Center for Bariatrics & Advanced Surgery has an in-house LAP-BANDfill and maintenance program. Patients who received a gastric band in the past may now require maintenance or revision surgery to address: reflux, weight regain, or a slipped band.
