Once a popular choice for a bariatric procedure, there are several reasons why patients need LapBand revision surgery. Although the LapBand procedure worked well for many people, it has had the highest number of failures, including suboptimal weight loss and problems with the device including erosion. Over time, this can cause an infection to the tissue where the Lap-Band port is located.
Some patients also experience digestive issues such as nausea. Band revision surgery can be a more aggressive approach that does not include a foreign body and delivers better outcomes. Two options include either undergoing a band to sleeve procedure or a band to bypass procedure. Dr. Korman will work with you to determine which procedure is the better choice for you individually.
