Endo Revision: The Answer to Weight Gain after Gastric Bypass
Even when patients do everything right, in rare cases, their gastric bypass may not work exactly as it was intended. Sometimes, they start gaining weight years afterward. Others start noticing discomfort in their stomachs. Luckily, Advanced Surgical & Bariatrics offers the safest, most effective non-surgical fix to the gastric bypass: endoscopic revision, best known as an Endo Revision, the only procedure of its kind!
Why Might a Gastric Bypass Not Work as Intended?
The gastric bypass is one of the most well-known bariatric surgeries with an incredible track record. On average, patients who choose this procedure lose anywhere from 50% to 70% of their excess body weight. Additionally, they experience these positive results 12 years after surgery, according to a study published in Reuters. All in all, most surgeries go off without a hitch, and patients usually don’t experience a bypass “failure.”
Unfortunately, under rare circumstances, patients might notice significant weight gain post-op, which could indicate a bypass failure. Factors that can decrease the effects of a bypass include:
- Improper execution of the procedure
- Drinking carbonated beverages
- Natural, unforeseen changes to the body
Although these cases are infrequent, we want everyone to be able to achieve the weight loss they want and deserve. That’s why we’re introducing the first non-surgical way to repair a gastric bypass: Endo Revision.
What Is Endo Revision?
Endoscopic revision, known as an Endo Revision, is a unique procedure that fixes the problems that can arise from a failed gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy without surgery. Like revisional bariatric surgery, the surgeon tightens the stomach again after it has stretched or repairs any errors made from the initial procedure. This allows patients to return to eating smaller portions to lose excess weight while living healthy. However, unlike traditional revisional surgery, the Endo Revision is non-surgical. The surgeon inserts the endoscope through the patient’s mouth to reach their stomach which eliminates the need for any incisions.
The Benefits of an Endoscopic Revision
Endo Revisions work well because they minimize the risks inherent in traditional revisional surgery. How? By using an endoscope, the surgeon does not need to make any external incisions and can safely perform the surgery. Like with Endo Bariatrics, Endo Revisions do not have the risks, challenges, and complications that come with its surgical counterparts. As an added bonus, because there are no incisions, there are no scars to worry about!
Why Would I Need an Endo Revision?
Weight gain after gastric bypass surgery is most commonly caused by a patient’s stomach stretching gradually over time. In turn, the patient needs to eat more in order to feel full. This increased food intake can make patients start regaining the weight that their gastric bypass initially helped them lose.
Additionally, several intrusive symptoms may arise that signal a defective gastric bypass and should be kept in mind, even months or years after a successful surgery. Some of these symptoms include:
- Abdominal pain
- Heartburn symptoms after surgery
- Insignificant weight loss
