Some patients who have undergone gastric bypass either have not had the expected result, or over time, have once again begun gaining excess weight. Gastric bypass revision surgery may be necessary if the stomach pouch has enlarged, or if the original surgery did not produce the dramatic weight loss expected from gastric bypass surgery.
Weight Gain after Gastric Bypass Surgery
If you have had gastric bypass surgery in the past, and are now regaining the lost weight, it may be associated with changes in your stomach and intestine that make it possible to consume more food – and calories. A revision surgery may be necessary.
At New York Bariatric Group, our team of professionals is often called upon to perform gastric bypass revision surgery to assist those who are not experiencing the dramatic weight loss expected from gastric bypass surgery, or over time, are regaining the weight they lost after the surgery.
