Self Pay Conversion Weight Loss Surgery

Obesity is one of the highest health issues that often leads to more severe diseases, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea.  Many people have looked to weight-loss surgeries as a cure  While the majority of bariatric surgeries are successful, some patients did not experience the expected results.  New Life Surgical Associates offers Self Pay Conversion Weight Loss Surgery as a popular cost-effective alternative.

After meeting with Dr Sharma on your initial consultation, and based upon your situation, he may recommend a revision or conversion if your bariatric surgery. Through the Self Pay Conversion Weight Loss procedure, it can retain and modify your original procedure, while a conversion replaces an unsatisfactory procedure with a different one. Often both can be performed laparoscopically, or minimally invasively. 

In the 70s, 80s, and early 90s, gastric stapling procedures were performed for weight loss. These procedures had high failure rates and complications requiring patients to have revision surgery to convert them to gastric bypass procedures.  After gastric bypass, patients may lose between 75-80% of their excess weight in the first 18 months. It is expected to gain 10-15% back after the second year, but if the patient starts to gain more than 25% of their lost weight and continues to gain weight, then it is assumed that the initial surgery was not successful.  Some patients may gain more than 25% of their weight loss after sleeve gastrectomy due to dilation of the gastric sleeve. This requires surgical revision to allow them to start losing weight. Some gastric sleeve patients may also develop severe reflux that doesn’t respond to medical management. This requires conversion to gastric bypass to avoid the complication of reflux.

As mentioned above, some early weight-loss surgeries proved unsatisfactory or caused complications. This includes, but is not limited to, stapling, jejunoileal bypass and loop gastric bypass. You also could experience problems with more recent procedures if your organs stretch, a blockage forms or a band slips.  New Life Surgical Associates specialize in the conversion of previous weight-loss surgeries.
