Bariatric surgeries are weight-loss procedures done in obese patients with a high body mass index aimed at preventing or decreasing weight-loss-related complications like high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart diseases. Because the prevalence of obesity is increasing worldwide, the number of bariatric surgeries performed is also rising. As a result of this, the number of revisional procedures performed to combat the acute and chronic postoperative complications of these surgeries are also increasing.
Revisional Bariatric Surgery is a second surgery performed on patients who underwent Bariatric or weight-loss surgery before but didn't experience its benefits or are facing complications due to it. For example, if you've had previous bariatric surgery and have not been successful with your weight loss, revising that and doing a second surgery would be a revision. Or, if you've had previous bariatric surgery and are having complications, revisional surgery is a second surgery to fix those complications. The complications include stomach pains, discomfort while eating or sleeping, and regain of the weight lost as a result of the Bariatric Surgery procedure.
As revisional surgery is a second surgery, it becomes much more complicated and challenging to do because of previous scar tissue and incisions. However, we welcome such patients to our hospital.
