Revision Surgery

Sometimes a weight loss surgery fails because it wasn’t done correctly. In other cases, it was not the best treatment for the patient and sometimes we will never know why the treatment did not work. Whatever the case, it is perfectly reasonable for anyone who tried one treatment without success, to have the chance to try a different obesity treatment. Every case is different, so we’ll work with you to evaluate your medical history, reasons for weight regain, lifestyle, and treatment preference. If you have regained weight after bariatric surgery or the weight loss balloon, please get in touch with us and hear about your options for finding the weight loss, health, and energy you’re looking for. “The staff and surgeons at the International Metabolic Bariatric Center are great!

Dear Dr. Obesity Control Surgeon. Revision Surgery. Bariatric Surgery in Mexico. Allison Weight Loss Surgery Journey Gastric Sleeve. Obesity control surgeons.. INTRAGASTRIC BALLOON. The largest study to look at the effectiveness of the intragastric balloon was conducted in Brazil where 323 patients with an average BMI of 43kg/m2 had balloons inserted between November 2000 and February 20041.


The patients in this study lost on average 48% of their excess weight. Overall this study showed a high degree of efficacy of the balloon, together with a low risk of death (there were none) or major side effects. Overall, studies published and presented to date show the excess weight loss after a balloon to be between 25% and 44%. You should not consider a balloon if you suffer from: - Inflammatory disease or previous surgery of the gastrointestinal tract. - Alcoholism, drug addiction or psychiatric disorders. - You are unwilling to participate in a supervised diet and behaviour modification programme. - You are pregnant or breast–feeding - Intestinal obstruction by the balloon (which could cause death) when a partially deflated balloon passes into the small bowel.

Duodenal Switch Surgery

It does so by combining two surgical techniques: restrictive and malabsorptive. The restrictive component involves reducing the size of the stomach. Your bariatric surgeon would divide the stomach vertically and remove more than 85 percent of it. The stomach that remains is shaped like a banana and is about 100 to 150 milliliters or 6 ounces.

Duodenal switch surgery is a variation of another procedure, called biliopancreatic diversion. As the name suggests, the duodenal switch also keeps a small part of the duodenum in the digestive system. Foods mix with stomach acid, then move down into the duodenum, where they mix with bile from the gall bladder and digestive juices from the pancreas. Malabsorptive surgeries restrict the amount of calories and nutrients the body absorbs. Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery. During a OAGB procedure, the surgeon first reduces the size of the “working” stomach by separating a tube-like pouch of stomach from the rest of the stomach.

Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery

This tubular gastric pouch is then connected (anastomosed) to the intestine, bypassing up to 200cm of the upper part of the intestine. This technique differs from the traditional Roux-en-Y Bypass (RYGB) which requires two connections (anastomoses). A OAGB typically results in 30% to 40 % body weight loss from baseline (60-80% excess weight loss). The most rapid weight loss occurs in the first 6 months after surgery and then continues at a slower pace for up to another 18 months.This weight loss is achieved through both restriction (the new gastric pouch can hold only a small quantity of food) and malabsorption.

Bypassing a sizable segment of the intestine, the remaining intestine is not long enough for normal nutrient absorption leading to malabsorption. Gastric Bypass Surgery. GASTRIC SLEEVE SURGERY - DR.
