Revisional Bariatric Surgery at Southcoast Health
Bariatric surgery, or weight loss surgery, can help obese adults lose weight, feel full, and improve conditions like type 2 diabetes or sleep apnea. In addition to non-surgical weight loss options, Southcoast Health offers bariatric surgeries such as roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery and laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy.
The success rate for weight loss surgery is very high, but there are several risks of bariatric surgery, including weight gain, weight regain or inadequate weight loss. In these situations, it may be possible for gastric bypass patients to receive a follow-up procedure called bariatric revision surgery in Fall River or Wareham, MA at Southcoast Health. This surgery can alter or repair your initial bariatric surgery.

Why You May Need Revision Surgery
Bypass surgery has become increasingly common and is typically recommended for individuals with a body-mass index of 40 or higher, or those with a BMI of 35 or higher with weight-related health conditions.
If after surgery you experience weight regain, common issues include an enlarged stomach outlet to the small intestine or stretched stomach pouch. Prior to any revision procedure, your surgeon will want to rule out diet and exercise
