Re-Sleeve Revision

Here at Renew Bariatrics, our team of leading bariatric surgeons have made the ethical decision not to perform this type of revisional surgery. The data of re-sleeve surgeries is poor, resulting in many failing revisional surgeries. Renew Bariatrics advises its patients to perform either the gastric bypass or the mini gastric bypass if your gastric sleeve is failing.

Gastric Sleeve to Gastric Bypass

Converting your gastric sleeve surgery to gastric bypass surgery is a great option if your weight loss isn't measuring up. Gastric bypass surgery can provide extra weight loss through its malabsorptive properties.

Why Gastric Sleeve Revision May Be Necessary

There are a number of reasons why a patient may need a follow-up procedure.

Not losing the amount of weight expected – This could be due to the stretching of the sleeve over time, typically due to increased food intake. Some people gain a little “rebound weight” after surgery because they don’t stick to their diet and exercise program.

However, if you’ve been following your diet and exercise regimen but you’re not losing the expected weight, you may be experiencing complications.

Regaining weight after losing it as expected. This may indicate that the stomach has stretched out and needs to be surgically reduced again.

Experiencing unpleasant side effects such as chronic acid reflux, vomiting, or nausea that can’t be relieved with medication or dietary changes.

Options for Gastric Sleeve Revision

When the stomach becomes stretched, it can be rectified by either a pouch reset or a revisional surgery. A pouch reset is a way of returning the stomach to the size it was immediately after surgery by returning to the immediate postoperative diet. This approach isn’t backed by research. However, there is scientific support for revisional surgeries.

Candidates for Gastric Sleeve Revision in Tijuana

It’s essential to meet with one of our surgeons to discuss any gastric sleeve revisional requirements to determine if you’re a good candidate any procedure. Patients with a BMI of over 30 are generally considered good candidates. You must also be between the ages of 18 and 65 to be considered for gastric sleeve surgery.

Your previous bariatric surgical history, along with any surgical history, is also taken into consideration. Your coordinator will ask you detailed questions including when you had your prior surgery, the method of surgery, your weight loss results, and more.

Health status is another factor in your candidacy for gastric sleeve revisional surgery. While they don’t automatically exclude you from the procedure, certain health conditions need to be carefully evaluated before going ahead. That includes severe lung and heart conditions, the inability to walk on your own, and alcohol or drug addictions.

Risks and Side Effects of Revisional Gastric Sleeve Surgery

retrospective study that included the outcomes of 32 patients who underwent revisional surgery. They were taken from a group of 500 patients who received primary laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomies.

The revisions were most commonly necessitated by weight gain, poor weight loss, and gastroesophageal reflux disease. Twenty-three patients received a revisional laparoscopic gastric sleeve procedure while nine underwent a revisional laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.

The researchers found that the average operation time, duration of hospital stay, and rate of complications were all significantly higher than in the total cohort. They determined that even though these revisional procedures appear to be safe and effective, they are associated with increased complications.

Following your post-operative and recovery care directions very closely is the best way to reduce the risk of any of these issues. Most gastric sleeve revisions are done without incidence and are generally successful. However, it pays to stay on top of your recovery so that you can address any problems that arise before they get worse.
