What is it?
Revision bariatric surgery is a procedure completed on patients who have already received bariatric surgery in Perth previously and are thus undergoing revisional surgery to either alter the type of weight loss surgery – from a reversible procedure such as Lap Band Surgery to a non-reversible procedure like Gastric Sleeve Surgery.
The reasons for undergoing a revisional procedure can be dictated by many factors such as weight regain or complications of previous surgery. Typically a patient will return to the same bariatric surgeon with whom they underwent their first procedure, but this is not necessary. What is most important is that the surgeon who is conducting the bariatric revision understands the requirements of the individual and conducts the surgery with care.
