Gastric Sleeve Surgery (VSG) to

Gastric Bypass Surgery (Roux-en-Y)

Bariatric Revision Surgery in Tijuana, Mexico

Even though is more common for Gastric Band or Gastric Bypass patients to experience complications due to overeating, there are a few cases of Gastric Sleeve patients who experience the number one failure of a bariatric surgery: weight regain.

After every Bariatric Surgery, MedicalMex recommends patients to follow a proper and healthy diet and start having a more active lifestyle (exercise) to fulfill 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, the shaped gastric pouch can begin to expand and enlarge.

The safest and most effective solution to weight regain would be recommitting to your post-surgical diet and exercise plan. However, if the gastric sleeve is sufficiently stretched, this is no longer a proper solution. The best solution is to revise the gastric sleeve by performing a gastric bypass surgery.
