The adjustable gastric band, or lap-band, is one of the most popular weight loss procedures performed today. In some cases, people who have this procedure may need a revision. Revision surgery is necessary when the lap-band is not performing as expected or if there are complications.
You are a good candidate for revisional surgery if you are unhappy with your weight loss progress, or if you have experienced several complications with band. Revisional surgery often involves removing the original band and converting your anatomy to another procedure. Revisional surgery is often an outpatient procedure performed using minimally invasive techniques.
