Revision weight loss surgery in a nutshell

Revision bariatric surgery is performed after the initial weight loss procedure to modify, enhance, reverse, or alter the original procedure. The annual number of primary NHS bariatric surgeries in England peaked in 2011/2012 with 8,794 operations performed, compared to 6,627 in 2017/18 (latest figures available). decreased slightly to In addition, it is estimated that up to 5,000 major procedures are performed on UK patients in the private sector in the UK and abroad. The UK National Bariatric Surgeon Registry estimates that 11% of all weight loss surgeries performed on him in 2015/16 were revision bariatric surgeries.

Revision surgery is rarely planned in advance when the two procedures are performed separately and at planned time intervals. This happens in certain situations. A biliopancreatic conversion is followed several months later by a duodenal conversion. In general, revision surgery is defined as surgery performed more than 90 days after the original surgery.

Reasons for revision surgery for weight loss

There are nearly as many reasons for revision surgery as there are people who need it, from revision gastric bypass surgery for ulcers to dislodged gastric bands. However, most of the reasons for undergoing a second obesity treatment following him fall into five categories.

  1. Complications from the first procedure

  3. Related conditions such as diabetes and heart disease do not improve or recur
  4. Any combination of the above factors
  5. Very rare but sometimes accompanied by excessive weight loss, malnutrition, or persistent diarrhea

A 2014 study of a small number of patients revealed the following frequency of reoperation:

  • For patients with original gastric band surgery: 20% to 60%
  • Patients with original gastric bypass surgery: 9% to 17%
  • Patients with initial gastric sleeve surgery: 9%–11%
