There is no such thing as a “perfect” weight loss procedure, and all bariatric procedures have limitations. In some cases, patients are not satisfied with their weight loss following a particular procedure, and their slow or reduced weight loss can often be traced back to an anatomical or medical problem following surgery.
Choosing bariatric revision surgery
If you have experienced complications following a weight loss procedure, know that you are not alone and that help is available. Following a comprehensive medical evaluation, the experienced bariatric team at McCarty Weight Loss Surgery can recommend the appropriate surgical revision to help you get back on track and achieve your weight loss goals.
Some common revisional procedures that are available include:
While the thought of undergoing an additional surgery may cause some anxiety, it is often the best option for patients who have experienced a “failed” weight loss procedure.
Paying for bariatric revision surgery
If your doctor has recommended bariatric revision surgery, you may be wondering how you will cover the cost of another surgery. You do not have to live with a failed bariatric surgery — in many cases, failing to address the problem could be dangerous to the patient. The good news is that many insurance companies will cover the cost of revisional surgery if it’s deemed medically necessary.
If you do not have insurance, there are other options to pay for your surgery. McCarty Weight Loss Center provides a variety of financing options through CareCredit®, United Medical Credit and Prosper Lending to help self-pay patients pay for revision surgery.
