Bariatric Surgery Revision After the Gastric Sleeve Procedure

If the gastric sleeve procedure was your initial option for weight loss surgery, a considerable portion of your stomach was permanently removed. The remaining portion of your stomach is similar to the shape and size of a banana. It is considered a gastric sleeve. The main goal of gastric sleeve surgery is to reduce the size of your stomach so that you are forced to consume smaller amounts of food each time you eat. In most cases, it works well.

One of the most common issues is an increase in the size of your sleeve over time. Your stomach may expand as it stretches. As a result, you may start consuming more calories than you should. Weight gain could occur. Dr. Nunez will discuss your options for bariatric surgery revision. He may recommend that your original sleeve is modified, reducing its size. Otherwise, conversion surgery in Tijuana Mexico may be best for you. Dr. Nunez can offer you other solutions, such as a mini gastric bypass or gastric bypass surgery.


Bariatric Revision Options After a Gastric Bypass

If you have had a gastric bypass or a mini gastric bypass, the main goal was to create a small pouch to reduce the size of your stomach, ensuring you consume fewer calories. Your small intestine is connected to your small pouch, sending a much smaller amount of food on for digestion. While these procedures typically have a high success rate, problems do occur.

You may develop ulcers, a bowel obstruction, begin to vomit, suffer from gallstones, or have perforation of the stomach. Regardless of what issues you may experience after any type of gastric bypass surgery, Dr. Nunez can help you with bariatric surgery revision or conversion bariatric surgery in Tijuana Mexico.
