What is Gastric Sleeve Revision

What is Gastric Sleeve Revision

What is gastric sleeve revision

The gastric sleeve has quickly become the most popular weight loss surgery in the United States (as of 2013 ASMBS statistics). It is not only a straightforward procedure but an exceptionally effective one. However, much like any medical treatment, there is the potential for the procedure not to offer the expected degree of weight loss the patient or their surgeon expects.

Why The Gastric Sleeve Fails

Patients who consume too much food too quickly may get feedback from their band (in the form of discomfort or vomiting) or bypass (in the form of dumping syndrome), but not often from their sleeve. As such, if patients aren’t tracking their food intake, they may not know they are overeating. For that reason and others, the most common cause of a failure in the gastric sleeve procedure usually revolves around the patient’s lifestyle. A lack of proper diet and consistent exercise is often the culprit of poor weight loss or weight regain.

If not caught soon enough, there is a chance that the sleeve shaped gastric pouch will begin to expand and enlarge. This allows patients to eat more at every sitting and, in turn, gain weight. The longer this goes untreated, the more weight a patient may regain.

Rarely, a gastric sleeve may fail to offer adequate weight loss because not enough of the stomach was removed during the first surgery.

Gastric Sleeve Revision Options

The safest and most effective way to combat weight regain is by recommitting to the prescribed post-surgical diet and exercise plan. However, if the gastric sleeve is sufficiently stretched, this may no longer be a viable option.

Since procedure-related weight regain almost always revolves around the stomach pouch stretching, surgical revisions are relatively straightforward. The gastric sleeve can be revised by performing a second sleeve procedure to re-shrink the gastric pouch and remove excess volume. This is called a re-sleeve and is performed in much the same way as the first procedure.

The sleeve can also be revised to a gastric bypass or a duodenal switch. This stepped approach to weight loss adds a malabsorptive component that can offer a second pathway to weight loss. This course of action would be considered a last resort as both the bypass and duodenal switch have added dietary restrictions and are more complex.

As with any revision, it is important that we fully evaluate each possibility. Revisional surgery comes with additional risk and should not be taken lightly. As such, a consultation with one of our bariatric surgeons is the only way to understand whether a revision is the right option.

What Is Gastric Sleeve Weight Loss Surgery?

facebook-contenido-trinity-gastric-sleeveWhat Is Gastric Sleeve Weight Loss Surgery?

Are you considering gastric sleeve surgery because you’ve tried diets and exercise for years and still have a lot of weight to lose? You’ll want to know the risks and benefits, what makes someone a good candidate for the operation, and what long-term commitments you need to make to keep the results.In this operation, surgeons remove part of your stomach and join the remaining portions together to make a new banana-sized stomach or “sleeve.” With just a small sack (about 1/10th the size of your original stomach), you’ll feel full a lot quicker than you did before. You won’t be able to eat as much as you used to, which helps you lose weight. Plus, the surgery removes the part of your stomach that makes a hormone that boosts your appetite.

It’s Different From Gastric Bypass

In gastric bypass, the surgeon makes a small pouch that skips most of your stomach, going straight to the intestine.

Gastric sleeve surgery is best for people who have a BMI (body mass index) of at least 40. That means you’re 100 pounds or more over your ideal weight. Some people are too heavy for gastric bypass surgery, so it may be a good alternative.

What Happens

The surgery takes about an hour. Your surgeon will make a few small cuts in your stomach and insert a laparoscope — an instrument with a tiny camera that sends pictures to a monitor. The surgeon will then insert other medical instruments through the additional cuts and remove 3/4 of your stomach. Finally, he’ll reattach the rest of your stomach to form the “sleeve” or tube.

New Eating Habits

The first day after surgery, you’ll drink clear liquids. By the time you leave hospital, you can eat pureed foods and protein shakes and will continue to do so for about 4 weeks.

Keep in mind that you have to change the way you eat forever. After that first month, you’ll switch to eating soft solid foods very slowly. Other pointers to keep in mind:

  • Everything must be chewed thoroughly before being swallowed.
  • Don’t drink while you eat, as this might cause your new stomach to overfill.
  • Drink liquids a half-hour after finishing a meal.
  • Avoid high-calorie sodas and snacking.
  • Take vitamin and mineral supplements every day.

After 2 or 3 months, you can move on to regular meals. But remember, you will not be able to eat as much as you used to.

Weight Loss

People generally lose 60% of their extra weight over 12 to 18 months. So if you are 100 pounds overweight, you’ll lose about 60 pounds, though some lose more and others less. Of course,exercising and eating right add to your weight loss.

Risks

Infection, bleeding, and in rare cases, a leak along the staple line are possible. Right after the surgery, you may have nausea, vomiting, or constipation.

Certain foods may not agree with you now. You may also develop nutrition problems after surgery, which is why you have to take vitamins and supplements for life. Your doctor will advise you on exactly what you need.
