My results are more than I imagined was possible. I'm down 155 pounds in 6 months. I went to an annual screening that my employer requires and the numbers were the best in 30 years. The staff was professional and efficient 6 months ago as well. My biggest regret is that I waited so long to get the surgery!

Types of Bariatric Surgery Revisions

The type of revision surgery you need depends on the type of bariatric surgery you originally had and the issues you are facing post-operation. You will discuss any complications you are having with one of our weight loss experts so they can determine which surgical option is right for you.

Gastric Sleeve Revision

A gastric sleeve, also known as sleeve gastrectomy, is a surgical procedure in which the stomach is dramatically reduced in size, making the remaining stomach look like a sleeve. If a previous gastric sleeve procedure has failed to produce your desired results, our bariatric surgeon will start by further reducing the size of your stomach. This conservative approach is typically enough to promote dramatic weight loss. However, if re-sleeving is not a suitable option, a gastric sleeve can be changed into a gastric bypass or duodenal switch (combination of gastric bypass and sleeve). 

Learn More About Gastric Sleeve
Gastric Bypass

Gastric Bypass Revision

Gastric bypass is similar to sleeve gastrectomy in that it reduces the size of your stomach. However, gastric bypass also reroutes your small intestine, which reduces food absorption. If you are not seeing the desired results from a gastric bypass, our bariatric surgeons will start by performing a minimally invasive distal bypass (a gastric bypass variant) to further reduce calorie absorption. If a distal bypass is not a suitable option, they may suggest a duodenal switch or another bariatric procedure. 


LAP-BAND Revision

LAP-BAND surgery has one of the highest revision rates of any bariatric procedure. Patients are prone to regain weight, the band can slip, and the surrounding tissue can become infected. Because of the potential complications surrounding the LAP-BAND bariatric procedure, our surgeons will often recommend removing the LAP-BAND and performing a sleeve gastrectomy or gastric bypass instead. The type of bariatric surgery our surgeon recommends will depend on which one they think will best suit your needs and help you reach your weight loss goals. 

Dramatic Weight Loss Can Have Life-Long Benefits

After Bariatric Surgery
When previous bariatric surgery has failed, our skilled surgeons can give you the results you need.

I did numerous hours of research before considering ALO Bariatrics because of the dangers of medical tourism. Once I convinced my mom (a 20+ year RN) that I had done enough research and that he was licensed and had a great record I had the gastric sleeve performed in Puerta Vallarta and it was an amazing experience.

Revision Surgery Recovery What To Expect

Your recovery will greatly depend on the type of revision you undergo. During your free consultation, we will give you an overview of what your recovery will be like and how long it is expected to take. You will be closely monitored post-operation to ensure a safe recovery with no complications. In general, this is the timeline you can expect:
Follow your surgeon's post-operation instructions to ensure a safe recovery and lasting results.
Follow your surgeon's post-operation instructions to ensure a safe recovery and lasting results.

First Few Days

Immediately after surgery, you will be closely monitored in our hospital so we can watch for any potential complications. Once you are discharged, you will return to your hotel to recover. The hotel is very close to the hospital, so if any complications or issues arise, we can give you immediate attention.

First Few Weeks

Within the following four to six weeks, patients will have a transitional diet, much like they did during their first bariatric surgery. You will start with an all-liquid diet and then slowly transition into solid food. This transitional diet helps patients learn their limits, aids in healing, and helps patients lose excess weight. It is recommended that you walk a few times each day to promote circulation.

Lifestyle Changes

Strenuous activity should be avoided for the first few weeks following your surgical procedure. As you heal and your strength increases, you can start doing light physical exercise and return to work. When you are fully healed, you can incorporate a regular exercise routine to promote and maintain weight loss. Bariatric surgery is a tool to help kickstart a healthy life. Staying physically active and maintaining a healthy diet is the best way to ensure the results of your surgery last. 

Conservative Techniques To Give You the Best Results

Our experienced bariatric surgeons always use the least invasive laparoscopic techniques possible when performing a revision. Laparoscopic surgery allows for smaller incisions, a quicker and safer recovery, and minimal scarring. We are also experienced in working around scar tissue from a previous surgery.

We take your safety and recovery very seriously. To ensure the revision surgery lasts, we take extra safety measures during the procedure, like suturing staple lines to prevent leakage and other complications.
