Bariatric Revision Surgery

If you had weight loss surgery but are experiencing weight gain or issues like gastric reflux, bariatric revision surgery may be necessary.

The board-certified bariatric surgeons of ALO Bariatrics are highly skilled at performing many kinds of revision surgeries.

Learn why patients travel to ALO Bariatrics' Guadalajara, Puerto Vallarta, and Tijuana, Mexico, surgical facilities for their surgery...

Reasons to Get Revision Surgery 

When a weight loss surgery patient undergoes an outdated technique, or a procedure like gastric sleeve surgery or gastric bypass surgery was performed by an inexperienced surgeon, complications can develop. In other cases, the stomach can become stretched due to overeating or a failure to follow post-operative instructions. Your doctor might recommend a revisional procedure for:

Weight Gain

Thousands of bariatric surgery patients don't experience enough weight loss after their gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, or another weight loss surgery. Some of these patients actually gain back the weight they lost.


Gastroesophageal reflux disease causes food and acidic juices from your stomach to flow into your esophagus. This complication from weight loss surgery can result in intense heartburn or damage to the esophageal lining. 

Other Medical Issues

Complications related to gastric bands can also occur over time. If the band slips, you may need it replaced or repositioned. In extreme cases, the stomach tissue can erode or become infected.

Minimally Invasive Techniques for Precise Repairs

We use minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques whenever possible to revise a LAP-BAND®, gastric bypass, gastric sleeve, and more. Surgical tools and an endoscopic camera are inserted through a few small incisions, reducing scarring and recovery times.

Our team is highly skilled at working around scar tissue left by a previous bariatric surgery. And we add an extra safety measure by suturing staple lines to prevent leakage

We Excel at Revision Techniques Other Practices Aren't Capable of Performing

We have performed thousands of successful gastric bypass, gastric sleeveLAP-BAND, and other weight loss procedures, giving us a unique insight into the bariatric revision surgery process. Two types of methods that set us apart include:

Distal Bypass Revision

This low-risk procedure revises a patient's first gastric bypass, resulting in more successful weight loss. The pouch created during the original gastric bypass surgery is redone to correct current weight loss issues. We also shorten the small intestine to decrease calorie absorption. We are one of the few teams to perform this gastric bypass revision procedure.

Gastric Sleeve to Distal Bypass

We also perform distal bypass revisions to correct the size of the gastric sleeve created during previous gastric sleeve surgery. This can provide better long-term weight loss results and prevent complications like GERD and weight gain.
