Bariatric Revision Surgery
It is possible to start regaining some weight years after successful weight loss surgery. Weight regain after bariatric surgery can occur for a multitude of reasons. For some, mild weight regain may be corrected with diet modification and renewed emphasis on exercise. Others anatomic changes, such as stretching of the stomach pouch, may need a revisional bariatric procedure in order to correct it. Some patients who have had suboptimal results with a lap band choose to switch to either a sleeve or gastric bypass.
