Why Gastric Banding Revision in Mexico?​

Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB or Lap-Band) was widely known as one of the first bariatric procedures. Lap-band was sought to be safe and effective in the treatment to obesity. Lap-band had lower mortality and had the an added advantage of being reversible. During it’s peak in late 2000s, the gastric band was performed hundreds of thousands of times. 

However, the procedure’s demise was the result of its constant failure, which required a revision surgery, and its poor expected weight loss. Today, thousands seek revisional surgery on their Lap-Band surgery to help with their weight loss goal.

“I am exceptionally pleased with my experience with Renew Bariatrics. I had gastric sleeve surgery with Dr. Perez and from the moment of my initial contact to the present they have offered everything which has far exceeded my expectations... They were attentive, professional, and responsive... I am beyond thrilled with my decision to choose Renew after deciding against another one that seemed to be a surgery mill churning tons of people through. Everything promised ... no hidden fees, and they were thorough with all check ins and preliminary tests.”

Cost of Gastric Bypass Surgery Revision

The cost of bariatric surgery revision is dependent on may factors including when your lap-band was placed, whether it was performed laparoscopically or open, and several other factors. 

Renew Bariatrics is one of the leading bariatric centers in Mexico, who can perform nearly all types of gastric banding revisional surgeries. Renew Bariatrics strives to offer all of it’s surgical packages at attractive prices, while still providing high quality care. That is why there are things we don’t compromise like your own private hospital room or being all-inclusive, including take-home medications.

Other Cost Considerations

When looking at the cost it’s important to also factor in the expertise of the bariatric surgeon. Renew Bariatrics only works with the best bariatric surgeons in Tijuana and Cancun, Mexico – those with the highest skills, experience, and professionalism.  

Any revisional bariatric surgery is going to be more complex than standard bariatric surgery, so it’s vital to choose a bariatric surgeon who has performed this procedure numerous times before.

Causes of Gastric Banding Failure

The causes of gastric band failure include; anterior slippage of the band, symmetric pouch dilation, posterior slippage, and erosion of the band into the stomach wall. Patients considering revision due to these issues should be informed about the gastric band cost and gastric banding recovery time. Available options for revision include re-banding, which can be referred to as gastric band revision, conversion to gastric sleeve, conversion to gastric bypass, and duodenal switch. For those looking for cost-effective solutions, lap band revision Tijuana might be an option to consider, where the cost of gastric band procedures may be more affordable.

For those contemplating conversion from lap band to gastric bypass, Renew Bariatrics offers a seamless transition with expert care. We discuss all aspects of the procedure, from the expected outcomes to the potential for complications, ensuring patients understand the process and costs, particularly for lap band revision in Tijuana.

Conversion of Lap Band to Gastric Bypass

In this procedure, the band is removed, which may involve gastric band revision, followed by the roux-en-y gastric bypass. This has the advantage of being a restrictive as well as a malabsorptive procedure. 

The disadvantage of this revisional surgery includes the potential recovery time and the patient now stands a chance of developing the complications of gastric bypass such as dumping syndrome, dehydration, gallstone formation, etc. For those concerned about expenses, the gastric band cost or the cost of gastric band revision, especially in areas like lap band revision Tijuana, might be a consideration. The potential weight loss following the conversion of lap band to gastric bypass is the same as for primary gastric bypass surgery.

At Renew Bariatrics, we recognize the complexity and expense of the duodenal switch surgery. Our team is well-equipped to discuss alternatives to this procedure, providing comprehensive care and support for those seeking less invasive and more cost-effective weight loss surgery in Tijuana after failed gastric banding surgery.

Conversion of Lap-Band to Gastric Sleeve Surgery

This involves the removal of the gastric band and resection of the stomach. In gastric sleeve surgery, about 80% of the stomach is resected leaving a banana shaped 20%. This significantly reduces the amount of food the stomach can hold. The greater impact, however, seems to be the effect the surgery has on gut hormones that influence some factors including hunger, satiety, and blood sugar control (“Bariatric Surgery Procedures – ASMBS,” 2017).

Lap-Band to Gastric Sleeve Revision is the one of the most popular bariatric procedures today. Undergoing gastric sleeve surgery revision in Mexico is a popular choice for the affordable option and quick turnaround time. 

Conversion of Gastric Banding to Duodenal switch

Duodenal switch or biliopancreatic diversion + duodenal switch (BPD-DS) is a highly complex and most expensive of all bariatric procedures, often more costly than a gastric band. This is a form of restrictive and malabsorptive procedure. It produces the best result regarding weight loss and resolution of other comorbid conditions. It is commonly referred to as biliopancreatic diversion. It involves sleeve gastrectomy and refashioning of the small intestine with or without gallbladder removal. The percentage loss in BMI after 2 years can be as high as 73%. An additional benefit of this procedure is the resolution of other comorbid conditions associated with obesity such as diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and sleep apnea.

Though one of the easiest and safest bariatric surgeries, lap-band is not without its complications and failure, and revision surgery, such as gastric band revision, may be required. This could involve additional costs and gastric banding recovery time, especially if seeking affordable options like lap band revision Tijuana.

Renew Bariatrics understands that lap band surgery may not be the final step for every patient. Our surgeons are skilled in lap band revision procedures and provide transparent information about the potential costs and recovery times for patients seeking revisions or alternative surgeries in Mexico.
