What is Revisional Surgery?
Bariatric surgery is an effective tool for combating obesity and weight gain. However, some patients may need a secondary, or revisionary, procedure.
If you are having trouble with your original weight loss surgery or are struggling with weight regain, a revisionary procedure could be an appropriate option for you.
A revision or second procedure will depend on your specific needs, health problems and the nature of the previous procedure, but options include Sleeve Gastrectomy and Mini Gastric Bypass. Our surgeons will discuss potential treatments with you and help you decide the option best suited to your circumstances.
Other weight loss surgery procedures
You should have access to all surgical options, as determined by your unique needs. Both surgeons are highly experienced general surgeons with sub-specialty training in bariatric and upper gastrointestinal surgery. Both trained in high-volume specialist bariatric centres in Brisbane as well as interstate and overseas.
This means they are able to perform the full range of weight loss surgeries, as well as revision surgery. It’s about determining which procedure is right for you and your body.
Your surgeon will perform your weight loss surgery at the Mater Hospital in Pimlico. While your chosen surgeon will be your primary surgeon, both surgeons will attend. This means you get the unique benefit of two qualified specialist surgeons during your operation
