Revision Bariatric Surgery for Weight Regain
Many people undergo bariatric weight loss surgery for long-term weight loss. Most enjoy sustained and long lasting weight loss. But despite these excellent results, some may regain their lost weight with time, or fail to lose the amount of weight they need. Sometimes people re-adopt their old habits by abandoning diet and exercise regimes prescribed by their doctors. Sometimes the pouch created by the original restrictive surgery may stretch. Sometimes the lack of aftercare is the problem. We can help! Our office offers both surgical and non-surgical options for these problems.
Can Revision Bariatric Surgery help me?
Dr. Cribbins at the Texas Center for Obesity and General Surgery has had extensive experience in performing these revision surgeries. I have treated many other patients of other surgeons from the metroplex and around the country. Consider consulting Dr. Cribbins if you think your surgery might need to be revised.
Please bear in mind that all surgeries carry risks. The most common risks of bariatric surgery include leaks, blood clots, infections and respiratory problems.
