If you have recently undergone a weight loss procedure that has not been successful, revisional bariatric surgery from Texas Endosurgery Associates could be the answer. There are many reasons why a previous procedure could have yielded poor results. Our team will help you evaluate all of your options, and determine a surgical plan that will work for you.
Whether you are looking into a revisional procedure or are reviewing your options for an initial procedure, it's important to understand how bariatric surgeries work. They are procedures that help men and women achieve rapid weight loss. It is most often recommended for people who are extremely overweight or obese and require drastic measures to change their lives. There are several types of weight loss surgeries available, but the overall goal is restricting or changing the size of the stomach.
There are several issues that can lead to revisional bariatric surgery. The most common problems experienced by patients are unsatisfactory weight loss and regaining initial weight lost. Some bariatric surgeries are unsuccessful in resolving health problems associated with being overweight, such as diabetes or hypertension, even if the weight loss goal is achieved. Post-surgical complications can also hinder progress and results.
It is important to note that revisional bariatric surgery is an elective procedure and not every potential patient is approved for revisional. There is additional risk when you undergo the operation for a second time. To find out if you may be eligible for this procedure, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Bonnor at Texas Endosurgery Associates. We will review the results of your first procedure and discuss your candidacy for surgery. Call us today at (281) 579-5638.
