Unsatisfied with the results of your bariatric surgery? The Texas Center for Bariatrics & Advanced Surgery in Plano, TX, can help you...
Why Should You Consider Revision Weight Loss Surgery?
If gastric band surgery, gastric bypass surgery, or gastric sleeve surgery did not produce the results you wanted or if you gained weight after some time, bariatric revision can help you achieve better results or restart your weight loss.
Better Overall Health
By reducing or even reversing comorbidities such as type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, and high cholesterol, a successful weight loss procedure can help you improve your overall health. If you suffer from acid reflux, a gastric bypass can be used to redirect acid away from the esophagus, reducing symptoms like heartburn.
Superior Quality of Life
Bariatric surgery revision gives patients a second chance to lose excess weight. In some cases, this means a new lease on life. The confidence that comes from greater comfort often translates to every part of your life.

What Patients Are Saying about Us
Thank you Dr Cribbins for making my Christmas wish come true. For many years I have wanted to visit my family in California for Christmas, but I have not been able to do so because I did not fit in an airplane seat. I have lost 325 pounds thanks to having weight loss surgery with you. I was able to fly home this Christmas and see my family! Not only did I fit in an airplane seat I fit in a coach seat. Thank you for the life changing surgery! I can now go anywhere I want and not worry if I will fit in a seat on a plane, at the movies, in a restaurant or ANYWHERE else. I have my life back and I loving my life again. Thank you Thank you Thank you !
I was referred to Dr Cribbins by 3 different colleagues and am so glad I chose his office. The process for my insurance to cover my gastric sleeve was long and confusing but his office has helped with every step. I am not 12 days post op with zero complications and so excited for my new life! Dr Cribbins, Dr McCallum, Keisha, Barbara and Crystal are all life savers! Thank you so much!!
What Are Your Surgical Options?
Gastric Band Removal & Revision
Many patients who received a gastric band in the past choose bariatric revision because of weight regain or band slippage. Their options include:
- Band to Gastric Sleeve
- Band to Gastric Bypass Surgery
Gastric Sleeve/Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG) is a highly effective type of bariatric surgery, but it is normal for the stomach pouch to expand over time, causing weight regain at times. If you are unsatisfied with the results of your gastric sleeve, you can choose:
- Gastric Sleeve to Gastric Bypass
Gastric Bypass surgery reduces the size of the stomach and reroutes the intestines, so it is a highly effective form of weight loss. But if you failed to lose a sufficient amount of weight, regained weight, or suffered complications after a gastric bypass, it may be time to consider a revision to your gastric bypass surgery.
Gastric Band Revision
Weight loss surgery has evolved dramatically over the past few years. Many patients from Plano, Dallas, and other parts of Texas come to us for: gastric band revision, port replacements, and routine band adjustments/fills. Texas Center has an in house LAP-BAND fill and maintenance program. Patients who received a gastric band in the past now require maintenance or revision surgery to address: reflux, weight regain, or a slipped band.

Worried about the Cost of Revision Weight Loss Surgery?
If you are worried about the cost of revision surgery, you are not alone. Many patients who already invested in bariatric care once are hesitant to pay for a second procedure and its associated costs.
However, most weight loss procedures are partially or fully covered by insurance. We also offer financing options.
