Specialists in Band, Sleeve and Bypass Revision Surgery

Revision surgery

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). 

Specialists in weight loss revisions

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. 

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. 

From this page we aim to provide all the information you will need to inform yourself about the revision surgery options that are available to you. Our team members are experienced and are ready to answer your questions and help you decide upon the best option for you.

My gastric band had started to cause me pain and I’d started to regain weight so I did not want to regain the weight I’d lost with the band so I looked around for options to get revision surgery. The procedure was brilliant. Within a day I was on fluids, by the end of the week I was at home and the following week I was back at work.

Prior to the bypass I was 18.5 st and now I’m just under 13 st. This is the lowest BMI I’ve been since I was married 25 years ago.

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.
