Revision Surgery in Tijuana Mexico

Revision surgery is a surgical procedure for patients that have experienced an unsatisfactory result from a previous bariatric procedure; either had complications or have not successfully achieved weigh loss results from the initial surgery. 

When is Revision Surgery appropriate?
  • Weight was re gain after previous weight loss surgery: Research shows that up to 20% of patients who were morbidly obese prior to their initial surgery and up to 35% of patients who were super obese have gained back more than 50% of their excess weight after 10 years..
  • Not enough weight-loss: Patient wants to achieve greater weight loss results... Results may vary after weight loss surgery according to the patient; healthy and effective weight loss depends on following the post operatory diet and guidelines, remember that the sleeve is only a tool to reduce and limit the food intake, but is up to you to choose the type of food you are putting in to your body to reach long term weight loss results.
  • Irregular shaped sleeveThe success of the surgery or failure of the surgery is mostly based on the surgeon’s technique.
