Gastric Sleeve Revisions

The gastric sleeve or sleeve gastrectomy has swiftly become the most popular weight reduction surgery in the United States (by 2013 ASMBS figures). It is not only a straightforward procedure but an exceptionally effective one. However, much like any treatment, there is the potential for the process not to provide the expected amount of weight loss the patient or their surgeon expects.

Patients who consume too much food too quickly may get responses from their band (in the form of irritation or vomiting) or bypass (in the form of dumping syndrome – what is dumping symptoms?), however, not using their sleeve often. Therefore, if patients aren’t tracking their food intake, they might not know they are overeating.

For that reason while others, the most typical cause of failing in the gastric sleeve procedure usually revolves round the patient’s lifestyle. A lack of proper diet and consistent exercise is often the culprit of poor weight loss or weight regain. If not caught soon enough, there is a chance that the sleeve-shaped gastric pouch will start to expand and enlarge.

This allows patients to eat more at every sitting and, subsequently, gain weight. The much longer this goes untreated, the more excess weight an individual might regain. Rarely, a gastric sleeve may fail to offer sufficient weight loss because insufficient of the stomach was removed through the first surgery. The safest & most effective way to overcome weight regain is by recommitting to the recommended post-surgical exercise and diet plan. However, if the gastric sleeve is stretched, this may no more be considered a practical option.

Since procedure-related weight regain more often than not revolves across the stomach pouch extending, operative revisions are straightforward relatively. The sleeve can be revised to a gastric bypass or a duodenal switch also. This stepped method of weight loss adds a malabsorptive component that can provide another pathway to weight loss.

This plan of action would be considered a final resort as both the bypass and duodenal change have added eating limitations and are more complex. Wish to know the difference between your gastric sleeve and gastric bypass? The gastric sleeve can be revised by performing another sleeve treatment to re-shrink the gastric pouch and remove surplus volume.

This is named a re-sleeve and is performed in a quite similar way as the first treatment. Much like any revision, it is important that we evaluate each possibility fully. Revisional surgery includes additional risk and really should not be studied lightly. As such, a consultation with one of our bariatric cosmetic surgeons is the ultimate way to understand whether a revision is the right option.

That’s right, 100 pounds. It just happened without changing some of my food anything or behaviors else significantly. I did a lot. It was fought by me with everything I possibly could think of. I gained 25 lbs. WHILE doing all that exercise and being on Weight Watchers. During this time period, I visited the doctor a couple of times and they examined my thyroid levels.
