Revision weight loss surgery is a second or corrective weight loss surgery procedure.
Occasionally revision surgery may be necessary for patients who have not lost as much weight as intended.
It can also be necessary to correct complications from the original surgery such as ulcers, protein malnutrition, persistent vomiting or acid reflux.
Revision surgery is associated with greater risk than the original weight loss surgery, but it can be safe and effective when performed by experienced weight loss surgeons supported by a multidisciplinary team, such as found at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton.
