  • Revisional Bariatric Surgery

    This procedure consists of a patient who has been previously submitted to a bariatric surgery. The main reasons for revisional surgeries are:

    • Significant weight gain
    • Less than expected weight reduction
    • Secondary complications to the previous procedure.

    Revision surgery is a procedure with a high degree of technical difficulty on account of the scar tissue formed by the previous surgery.  Although most of it is performed laparoscopically, there is a risk of conversion to a larger open incision to complete the procedure.
