Bariatric Revision Surgery

Bariatric surgery that fails to achieve your weight loss goals can be incredibly frustrating however there is a way we can help.

Thankfully, it is possible to undergo surgical bariatric revisions to fix complications and reach your weight loss goals and dreams. 

Board Certified Surgeon Dr. Sandy Martinez performs powerful bariatric revision surgery in Tijuana, Mexico starting at $5,300 (Re-Sleeve). 

Dr. Martinez Is Especially Renowned For Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Revisions

Why It Is Necessary

Gastric bypass surgery (also called Roux-en-Y) can help patients lose drastic amounts of weight and lessen the risk of life-threatening conditions. Unfortunately, a gastric bypass you received elsewhere may have failed to achieve its intended weight loss effects, or may have resulted in complications like stomach perforations, malnutrition issues, acid reflux, and more. 

Many international patients come to Dr. Martinez for her talent and expertise in correcting faulty gastric bypasses. She can perform gastric bypass revisions that are too complex for other surgeons. For example, she can access a seemingly impenetrable abdominal cavity using advanced techniques.

What Dr. Martinez Can Achieve

First, she clears the surgical field surrounding your bypass and liberates the scar tissue. Next, she identifies the gastric pouch and determines if it should be reduced in size to create more restriction and better weight loss results. She will then check for any hernias that may have developed and closes the hernia gap to avoid acid reflux and promote stomach restriction.

Dr. Martinez can complete the surgery by creating a new bypass of another segment of your intestine to improve malabsorption. These corrections to your gastric bypass surgery can address complications and result in significant weight loss.

Dr. Martinez Offers Many Revision Surgery Options At Her State-of-the-Art Tijuana Hospital

Lap Band Removal & Replacement

Many patients who receive the once-popular Lap-Band® surgery struggle with complications like poor weight loss, food intolerance, severe pain, and food becoming stuck in their esophagus due to the gastric band. Thankfully, the procedure is totally reversible. Dr. Martinez uses laparoscopic techniques to remove the Lap Band and replace it with more effective options like gastric sleeve surgerymini gastric bypass, duodenal switch, or R&Y bypass. 

Gastric Sleeve Alternatives

Gastric sleeve surgery is often a powerful solution for patients in need of drastic weight loss. However, not all gastric sleeves achieve their intended effect, and some can even result in acid reflux issues that must be resolved. Dr. Martinez can convert your gastric sleeve into a mini gastric bypass or a full gastric bypass. She can also convert it into a duodenal switch. The duodenal switch combines a gastric sleeve and gastric bypass and is known as an extremely effective weight loss surgery.

Maintaining Your Results 

Adopting a healthy lifestyle after a revision bariatric surgery is necessary for successful results. Our Tijuana bariatric surgeon suggests the following:

Follow Your Nutritional Guide

Eating healthy foods like vegetables, fruits, and lean protein is essential for keeping an ideal weight. The nutritional guidelines recommended by Dr. Martinez and her team will help prevent weight gain. 

Take Supplements

Bariatric procedures can make it difficult for your stomach to absorb nutrients. Vitamins and supplements can help meet the nutritional needs that you may not get from food. 

Exercise Regularly 

When paired with a healthy diet, exercising and staying active can keep you from gaining excess weight. Even walking a few miles a week can help you maintain your body goals. 

Stay Hydrated

Drinking plenty of water can help you control your appetite. Keeping your body hydrated will also help it work efficiently, and can even help burn more calories. 

Support Your Mental Health

Bariatric procedures are more than just physical transformations. After undergoing bariatric revision surgery, you will likely feel some strong emotions and may have some mental strain. Talking with friends, family, and mental health professionals can be key to successfully maintaining your desired weight.
