Although the LAP-BAND® surgery works wonders for a multitude of obese patients who were previously unable to lose weight, some patients still have trouble even after the procedure. While some of these patients are tempted to give up, others come to Elite Surgical Center for band-to-sleeve revision weight loss surgery.
Since gastric bands are completely reversible, any patient who is struggling with pain from the band, or if they simply find that it is not effective in helping them lose weight, they will have the band removed and switch to a gastric sleeve. The sleeve gastrectomy is proven to help patients lose weight faster, so it may be a better option for patients with dangerous co-morbidities like heart disease and diabetes that are putting their immediate health at risk.
The best way to see if revision weight loss surgery is right for you is to schedule a consultation with Elite Surgical Center. Call today THIN.2.2.THIN , or (844) 622-8446!
