Gastric Band Surgery (Lap Band)
to Gastric Sleeve Surgery
Bariatric Revision Surgery in Tijuana, Mexico
The most common cause for the of a Gastric Band (Lap Band) Surgery is the patient’s overall lifestyle. Patients start to experience different symptoms such as vomiting or general discomfort caused by the amount of food they take and how often they do.
After every Bariatric Surgery, patients are recommended to follow a proper diet and practice a type of exercise to accomplish their weight loss goals. If they fail to do so, they aren’t able to track their food intake and they are not aware that they are overeating. If not caught on time, it can cause band slippage.
The safest and most effective solution to weight regain would be recommitting to your post-surgical diet and exercise plan. However, once the patient is experiencing band slippage, this is no longer an option. Revising to a Gastric Sleeve is the best solution since it offers a higher rate of success in weight loss than a Gastric Band.
