With a team of experienced professionals, we are here to partner with you throughout your journey – we want to help you achieve your weight loss and health improvement goals.
Revisional weight loss surgery is a surgical procedure that is performed on patients who have already undergone a form of bariatric surgery, such as Gastric Band or Gastric Sleeve and have either had complications or have not had a significant weight loss.
Typically a Gastric Bypass would be the preferred option for revisional surgery. However, patients that have previously had a bypass, but who have subsequently regained weight can opt to have an adjustable Gastric Band on top of their bypass.
What are the risks?
There are a small number of complications associated with the surgery which can be serious including; leaking, blood clots and haemorrhages. We at The Bariatric Group have some of the leading surgeons in the country whose professionalism and skill has allowed our patients to have minimal, if any, complications.
Gastric Band on top of Gastric Bypass
Gastric Banding operations typically take an hour unless you have adhesions and some scarring from your previous weight loss surgery, then more time will be required.
The procedure involves the surgeon placing a silicone band around the top section of your stomach. To loosen or tighten the gastric band, fluid is injected into or removed through a filling port (that sits underneath your skin) this is connected to an inflatable ring which sits along the inner part of the band. This element of the procedure can be performed easily in any of our eight local clinic locations and only takes a few minutes.
Prices start at just £6,795.
Gastric Band to Gastric Bypass
You will be asked to have a barium swallow (medical imaging procedure) prior to your surgery being agreed – this is to help the surgeon determine if your operation can be completed in a single stage – meaning removal of your Gastric Band and converting to Gastric Bypass in a single operation. You will be in theatre for around two and a half hours and you will spend two nights in hospital after the weight loss procedure.
Prices start at just £11,995.
