If you have already undergone bariatric weight loss surgery, but have since regained too much of the weight you lost, you may be frustrated and discouraged. Don’t lose hope. You still have a chance to get back to a healthy weight and lifestyle. Our board-certified bariatric surgeon Dr. Irfan Wadiwala is fully qualified to perform the laparoscopic revision bariatric surgery that can give you the second chance you need.
Dr. Wadiwala performs several types of revision surgeries for patients who have had bariatric surgery performed elsewhere. As a board-certified bariatric surgeon, with over 1,500
patients, he can perform revisions for gastric bypass, LAP-BAND, vertical banded gastroplasty, molina band, and more.
The most common reason why people need a second bariatric surgery is because they slipped up on their diet and exercise plan. Bariatric surgery, such as gastric bypass surgery, creates a small stomach pouch so that you feel full faster. However, if you make a mistake and continue to overeat, that pouch can stretch and allow you to eat more than you should before you feel satisfied. As a result, you gain weight.
If this has happened to you, a second chance at a healthy life is still possible. Dr. Wadiwala can shrink your stomach pouch using minimally invasive procedures. These high-tech laparoscopic surgical procedures are quite effective at giving you a second chance to finally defeat obesity.
If you need revision bariatric surgery, it is absolutely crucial to maintain realistic expectations for your future weight loss goals. If you were not able to stick to your portion control plan the first time, revision bariatric surgery can give you a second chance, but resisting temptation will not get any easier.
If you had a previous bariatric surgery, but have since gained too much weight, please contact our Houston bariatric surgeon Dr. Wadiwala for a revision bariatric surgery consultation at our office in Spring, Texas right outside of Houston and the Woodlands.
