Effective and safe solution to improve your health
In this context, Dr. Hernán Fraga, a prominent certified bariatric surgeon in Monterrey, offers his expertise to those seeking effective and safe solutions to improve their health and quality of life after unsatisfactory results or complications from previous procedures.
Bariatric revision surgery is a procedure performed to modify or repair a previous bariatric surgery. This intervention is considered when the results of an initial operation, such as gastric sleeve or gastric bypass, have not been effective, or complications have arisen.
Revision surgery is not only a physical correction but also represents a restart on the journey toward weight loss and a healthy life.

In each case, Dr. Hernán Fraga individually assesses patients to determine the best revision strategy, ensuring that the revision procedure is personalized to address the specific needs and goals of each patient.
Bariatric revision surgery can take different forms, depending on the original operation and the specific needs of the patient:
Sleeve Gastrectomy Revision
In cases where the gastric sleeve has not been effective, revision surgery may involve further reduction of stomach size or, in some cases, converting the gastric sleeve to gastric bypass to enhance weight loss.
Gastric Bypass Revision
If the original gastric bypass has caused complications or insufficient weight loss, the revision may include adjusting the size of the stomach pouch or the length of the bypassed intestine.
Each of these revision procedures comes with its considerations and risks. Dr. Hernán Fraga carefully evaluates each patient to determine the most suitable type of revision, using his experience and knowledge to maximize the safety and effectiveness of the procedure.
Treatment of Bariatric Complications
Bariatric revision surgery not only focuses on improving weight loss outcomes but also on treating complications that may arise after previous bariatric surgery. These complications may include nutritional problems, dumping syndrome, ulcers, intestinal obstructions, or hernias. Treating these complications is crucial for the long-term health of the patient and requires a specialized surgical approach.
The goal of this process is not only to correct issues arising from previous surgery but also to put the patient on the path to sustained success in their health and well-being.
