"I wish I'd gone with Healthier Weight for my gastric band"


As more people have weight loss surgery it’s inevitable that more people will need revision surgery. This is the term we use when referring to the surgery that either corrects a problem with the first weight loss (primary) procedure or that converts the primary procedure into something more powerful (possibly a gastric band to gastric bypass revision). 

As someone who has had a weight loss surgery procedure you’ll know about the risks and benefits of surgery. It is likely that you also know that revisional surgery is more specialist and technically challenging than primary surgery. For this reason, far fewer providers and surgeons have the experience necessary to do these procedures safely and effectively. As the UK’s largest, specialist weight loss surgery clinic we specialise in revisional surgery.

Revisional surgery is more complex than primary surgery. The main reason is that the anatomy will have been disturbed when you had, and recovered from, your primary procedure. More specifically, adhesions (scar tissue) will have formed in the abdomen and around the stomach. The adhesions need to be dissected, which is a delicate process, in order to expose the stomach and complete the revisional surgery safely. The presence of adhesions and the increased unpredictability of what the surgeon will be presented with in the abdominal cavity mean that revision surgery is more technically challenging, and requires greater expertise to perform safely and effectively.

Due to the specialist nature of this work we focus all our revision procedures on a select group of 4 surgeons, all of whom are specialists and do high volume revision work, both privately and in their NHS practice. Read why this is important and read more about our surgeons here.

Surgeon Rishi Singhal
"As a bariatric surgeon, revision surgery is the surgery I enjoy most. We never know quite what to expect as it's impossible to know what state the abdomen will be in following the primary procedure. I see an increasing number of patients in clinic who want revision and I expect the trend to continue. Thorough pre-operative assessment, focusing surgery on only those surgeons who do a lot of cases and paying careful attention to outcomes are important attributes of the Healthier Weight programme."
