Revision Bariatric Surgery

After a patient undergoes Bariatric Surgery, it may happen that the weight loss is not according to the expectations or the patient has regained weight after a few years. Here comes Revision Bariatric Surgery which gives another chance to such patients to lose weight. However, this surgery is undertaken only after ascertaining the below mentioned details:

  • When was the surgery performed
  • Where was the surgery performed
  • Postoperative instructions
  • Reasons for weight regain
  • Complications in the surgery

It is very important to know as to which bariatric surgery was initially performed because a few bariatric surgeries limit revisional surgeries. It is also essential to determine the operative report for the operation performed. If this is not available, then time and place of the surgery are enough to determine that. Postoperative instructions play a major role in losing weight post the operation. If a patient is not given proper guidelines, then he/she may face complications and might not reduce as much weight as expected. While performing Revision Bariatric Surgery, it is important to ascertain as to why the patient had regained weight after the initial operation. If it was a technical glitch while performing the operation, the revision Bariatric Surgery should be able to fix it. Complications faced during or after the initial surgery may fix the reason as to why there was no or minimal weight loss. Some complications like ulcers, profuse vomiting and infections may cause the technical glitch, hence failing the patient. At our Weight Loss Clinic in Dubai, we find out as to what is going to help our patients in losing weight successfully and only then perform. We stress on the patient’s medical history and only then revisional surgeries are performed.

Post Bariatric – Weight Regain

After the patients undergo a weight loss surgery in Dubai, it is necessary to follow strict diet control and pursue an active lifestyle, including walking, regular exercise, etc. to ensure that the weight lost is not regained. Healthy eating habits and postoperative instructions should be followed to make sure that no complications occur. These complications include nausea, profuse vomiting, headaches and giddiness. A regular follow-up with the doctor is also required. If proper care is not taken, it is possible that the patient puts on the weight again, negating the effects of the surgery initially performed. Bariatric Surgery is a lifestyle change inducing surgery and requires a strong will-power and determination to have the desired results.

However, a 10% weight regain is not worrisome.
