What Is Revision Surgery Surgery?

Revision Surgery in Mexico offers a crucial second opportunity for individuals who have undergone previous bariatric surgery but have not seen significant weight loss or have encountered complications. This type of surgery is typically performed using laparoscopic techniques, which involve smaller incisions, less pain, and quicker recovery times. However, for those with extensive scarring from previous surgeries, open surgery may be necessary.

As the number of bariatric surgeries increases globally, so does the need for high-quality revision procedures. Our specialized approach ensures that each patient receives a tailored surgery plan, addressing specific issues from earlier surgeries and aligning with current health goals.

FAQs of The Revision Surgery Mexico surgery

Q: How much weight loss can I expect after converting my failed gastric sleeve to a mini gastric bypass? A: The amount of weight loss after converting a gastric sleeve to a mini gastric bypass can vary, but many patients experience significant improvement. On average, patients may lose up to 75-80% of their excess weight within the first year post-surgery. This procedure not only reduces stomach size but also alters digestion and absorption, enhancing weight loss outcomes.

Q: Is it necessary for the surgeon to specialize in revision surgery for this procedure? A: Yes, it is crucial that the surgeon performing the revision surgery has specialized training and experience in bariatric revision procedures. Revision surgeries are generally more complex than initial bariatric surgeries and require a surgeon who understands the unique challenges and techniques involved in correcting or converting a previous surgery.

Q: Are the surgeons at Bariatric Mexico certified and specialized for revision surgery? A: The surgeons at Bariatric Mexico are highly qualified and hold certifications that demonstrate their expertise in bariatric surgery, including revision procedures. They have extensive experience dealing with complex cases and are trained to perform advanced surgical techniques necessary for successful outcomes in revision bariatric surgery. It’s always recommended to review the credentials and success rates of your surgeon prior to proceeding with surgery.

Q: Will I experience the same gas and nausea after the mini gastric bypass as I did with the sleeve? A: Post-operative symptoms such as gas and nausea can occur after any bariatric surgery, including a mini gastric bypass. However, these symptoms may vary in intensity and duration compared to those experienced after the initial gastric sleeve surgery. The mini gastric bypass changes the digestive process differently, which might reduce these symptoms for some patients. Your medical team will provide medications and dietary guidelines to help manage any discomfort during the recovery period.

Q: What are the risks of having a non-specialized revision bariatric surgeon perform the procedure? A: Choosing a surgeon without specialized training in revision bariatric surgery can significantly increase the risk of complications. These complications might include:

  • Poor Outcome: Inadequate weight loss or unresolved health issues.
  • Surgical Complications: Increased risk of leaks, infections, or improper connections within the gastrointestinal tract.
  • Need for Further Revisions: A non-specialized approach may result in the need for additional surgeries to correct or adjust issues not properly addressed.
  • Longer Recovery Time: Improper surgical techniques can lead to prolonged recovery times and more severe postoperative discomfort.

It is crucial to select a surgeon with specific training and experience in bariatric revision surgeries to minimize these risks and ensure the best possible outcome.

"Well, I’ve been bustin’ my britches working on my weight loss journey since my surgery a month ago, and let me tell y’all, Dr. Verboonen and his team are as good as grits! Sometimes we get our wires crossed with the language, but they treat me better than I ever got treated back home. Dr. Verboonen is like the neighbor who’s always there with a helping hand, cheering me on, never letting me lose heart. Feels like he’s practically family now, watching over my progress. Thinking about shedding some pounds? Don’t just sit on your porch swing—mosey on over to Dr. Sergio Verboonen at his Obesity Good Bye Center in Tijuana. You’ll be saying ‘howdy’ to a brand-new you faster than a hen on a June bug! Give 'em a call and start your own success story. Tell 'em I sent you and get ready for a hearty welcome!"

"Lord have mercy, where do I even start? Before I met Dr. Jeffry Romero and the fine folks at Bariatric Mexico in Cabo San Lucas, I felt like I was fighting a losing battle with my weight. But honey, let me tell you, that all changed the day I decided to take a leap of faith and head on down to Mexico. Dr. Romero, he's been nothing short of a blessing. Not just a doctor, but a true guardian angel. And his team? Sweet as peach pie, every single one of them. They took such good care of me, made me feel right at home, even though I was miles away from Tennessee. Since my surgery, it's like I've been given a brand new lease on life. I’ve shed the weight that's been holding me down for years, and I’m enjoying things I never thought I could again—like hiking through our beautiful Smoky Mountains with ease, or chasing my grandbabies around the yard without getting winded. So, from the bottom of my heart, I just wanna say thank you to Dr. Romero and everyone at Bariatric Mexico. Y'all changed my life, and I’m forever grateful. If you’re out there wondering if it’s worth it, believe me, it is. Give them a call, and maybe soon you’ll be feeling top-notch, just like me!"!"
