The team at LIMARP International Center of Excellence for Obesity offers revision bariatric surgery in Tijuana, MX, to correct failed weight loss surgery. Unfortunately, poor technique or insufficient follow-up can undermine the success of a surgery and sometimes lead to regained weight. Dr. Liza Maria Pompa González can work with a patient to figure out the best solution.
Revisional bariatric surgery is done when a patient already had another bariatric procedure and it failed because of a bad technique, because of a bad follow-up. So revisional bariatric surgery is converting a procedure to another one that is effective or to the same one, but that is effective. When we can convert a patient that had a lap band to a gastric sleeve or to a gastric bypass, or we can redo a bypass. That's what we call a bypass tuneup.
