Remember the Power of Revision!

Both the Lap Band and the Gastric Sleeve have been shown to be extremely effective procedures that allow obese patients to finally overcome the burden of obesity. Yet, there are some Lap Band patients that, for reasons involving both complications and insufficient diet modifications, decide to have their band removed. While this is an appropriate choice for some bariatric surgery patients, it’s important for them to remember that a revision to a gastric sleeve is another option that typically works wonders for struggling Lap Band patients.

At Dr. Feiz & Associates, we give our patients guidance throughout every step of the weight loss journey, and for those who simply cannot adjust to the new relationship with food required for Lap Band patients, a revision surgery may be in order. Of course, every patient is different. For anyone struggling to lose weight with the Lap Band, the first step is always to talk to our expert team and have a one-on-one consultation to determine what the next step should be. If you are concerned in even the slightest way, please do not hesitate to call our offices today!
