A revision operation is used to correct prior weight loss surgery that has failed. If you have unresolved complications or if you have not achieved your desired weight loss, a revision operation might be right for you.
Revision operations often convert the failed procedure to one that is better suited for the patient. In these cases, revision surgery may result in a tremendous improvement for the patient. These procedures can usually be done laparoscopically (with small incisions). However, in some cases a large incision must be made in order to complete the operation safely. Revision operations are usually higher risk operations than first time operations.

I get excited every time I look at the scale and it's dropping. I'm happy that it's starting to be noticeable by friends and family. Each time my body goes through a change I can tell. The doctors here are great and definitely would highly recommend them. Especially my surgeon Dr. Alvarez. Overall the staff, the other doctors have been wonderful. I wouldn't change anything. Tough road I am going through but would do it again if I had to. -Maria C. 5/28/16
More EnergyThe surgery was successful. The healing first month was hard but once the sickness feeling went away I felt much better with more energy. About 3 months after surgery I started to have extra energy and was able to run for the first time in 20 years. Even though it was a short run, I was able to do it. The feeling of being able to pick up my heavy legs and go was awesome. -Heidi B. -5/26/16
I’m Finally LivingEvery day I am excited. I cannot pinpoint an exact moment because I am thrilled to be living the life I am. I have such a different outlook on life. I am happy to feel like I belong and not judged because of my weight. I used to only exist in this world, but now I feel as if I'm finally living. So many doors have opened up since surgery and I'm excited to see what my future holds for once! Going into this process I was nervous. I didn't know what to expect. The staff, program, and doctors practically held my hand every single step of the way. They always made me feel important. I am so happy I chose the doctor I did and the program. They are all so kind. -Rebecca M. 5/26/16
