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
