Lap-Band Revision Surgery

Lap-Band® surgery was once a common procedure for obese patients all over the world, however, Lap-Bands sometimes cause problems.

If your Lap-Band isn't getting you the results you desire or is causing issues, you may be better suited to a different bariatric surgery.

Jet Medical Tourism® in Tijuana, Mexico, can provide you with Lap-Band revision surgery to aid in your weight loss.

Why Would I Need
Bariatric Revision Surgery?

Many patients have experienced problems after receiving their Lap-Band, including:

  • Failure to lose weight
  • Band slippage or erosion
  • Daily vomiting, coughing, or heartburn
  • Breathing-related problems
  • Abdominal pain

If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, you may benefit from the removal of your gastric band and the transition to a different bariatric procedure.

What Revision Weight Loss Surgery Entails

During revision surgery, your bariatric surgeon removes your ineffective Lap-Band and provides you with a different bariatric surgery. Our surgeons in Tijuana can provide you with a:

Gastric Sleeve

The most common bariatric option after revision surgery, gastric sleeve surgery removes about 80% of the stomach. This permanently restricts your food intake and controls your appetite. The gastric band removal and sleeve gastrectomy can be completed in about 2-3 hours.

Gastric Bypass

During gastric bypass surgery, the stomach is divided into two sections and the small intestine is rerouted to connect to both. This weight loss surgery controls how much food you can consume and the calories absorbed by your body, helping you achieve your weight loss goals.

Mini Gastric Bypass

Mini gastric bypass is similar to gastric bypass but involves less rerouting of the small intestine. This means that the bariatric surgery has a lower chance of complications, takes a shorter amount of time to complete, and can result in a shorter recovery time.

If you are in good health and are simply suffering from band erosion or slippage, your revision bariatric surgery can be performed right after removing your Lap-Band. Otherwise, your revision surgery will typically be scheduled 5-6 months after the Lap-Band removal to let your stomach heal from the complications induced by the band.

What to Expect After Your Procedure

Hospital Stay

If you simply had your Lap-Band removed and there were no complications, you'll be free to leave the hospital on the same day. If your stomach has sustained any damage from the Lap-Band or you've received another weight loss surgery, you'll have to stay in the hospital for 1-2 days after your procedure.

Recovery at Home

Lap-Band revision surgery typically requires two weeks of recovery time, and patients will have to recover at home for about 10 days. Be sure to follow all post-op care instructions and directions on your new diet.

Jet Medical was spectacular from my first contact with them. Every individual I worked with was quick to respond, courteous, and beyond helpful... The staff checked on me regularly, the doctor and his entire team eased my nerves before bringing me into the operating room, and I felt very comfortable being in their hands... If you’re in the fence, take the leap and go for it, I’m so happy I did!

Had an amazing experience! Everyone from the driver, nurses, and doctor were comforting. The hospital staff were competent and knowledgeable about the procedure and made sure I got all my questions answered... The hospital was comfortable and cozy. I had my own room with TV and bathroom. I would recommend Jet Medical to everyone! Truly had one of the best experiences.
