Revision surgery is a secondary surgery following the original bariatric surgery and can be necessary for two reasons:
Bariatric surgery is not guaranteed to be the cure for obesity. A careful, lifelong regimen of diet, exercise, nutritional supplements and regular doctor's visits are required to work towards a successful outcome. If you are not satisfied with your weight loss, or if you have plateaued, you are not automatically a good candidate for revision surgery. Revision surgery will be carefully considered by your physician and you will need to meet specific criteria before qualifying for a second procedure.
