Sometimes, weight loss surgeries do not work. You may not lose enough weight to improve your health, or you may regain weight.
If this is the case, you should make an appointment to see your surgeon at NYU Langone’s Weight Management Program. It may be a result of your behavior, but more importantly, it may be a result of the normal course of your surgery.
Your surgeon may suggest a procedure to revise or change your weight loss surgery that may be helpful.
Due to adhesions and scar tissue from the original operation, revisional surgery is more complex than the first weight loss procedure. At NYU Langone, we have some of the most extensive experience in the country in performing revisional surgery—should you require it, our surgeons and support staff are here to help.
